Pingris grateful for coach, teammates’ support as he gets 5k points

Marc Pingris eclipsed the 5,000-point mark in his career on Friday but he could’ve easily waited for another game to reach the milestone.

The fun-loving Star forward became the 81st local in the PBA to reach the scoring landmark when he finished with 12 points in Star’s 128-81 beating of Kia in the Governors’ Cup.

Pingris, though, wasn’t exactly chasing for the record, believing it’s just one of the many things he could still achieve in his career the PBA.

“I told my teammates to not always look for me in the offensive end. The important thing is that we get the win because I still have a long career ahead of me in the PBA,” said Pingris in Filipino as he finished the night with 5,001 career points.

“Just pass the ball to whosever open, but if given a chance I’ll take it.”
