NFL-toughened GlobalPort import sees himself thriving in PBA

MANILA, Philippines — It's safe to say that GlobalPort import Murphy Holloway had a walk in the park in his PBA debut Wednesday night.

He was once in the National Football League (NFL), after all.

Holloway, a 27-year-old American, once entered the NBA Draft. His bid didn’t translate to success, but he was able to make it in the premiere American football league.

“NFL, they [went to] me because of my size. That helps you man,” he shared. “Playing in the NFL, playing against guys like Ray Lewis—you might not know those names but they’re tough!”

“Getting hit everyday, getting in basketball is different than getting hit in football,” he added.

The former Baltimore Ravens tight end finished with 29 points and 26 rebounds in a 100-91 victory over the Phoenix Fuelmasters.
