TNT KaTropa turn emotional as ‘brother’ Ranidel moves on after 9 years

Ranidel de Ocampo is not only a great player, he’s a class act as well as his former TNT coaches and teammates offered nothing but praise for the versatile forward.

De Ocampo was traded to Meralco on Monday in a three-team deal, ending a nine-year stint with the Talk ‘N Text franchise that won six PBA titles during that stretch.

His departure has left his teammates and coaches in TNT emotional, as they took to social media to thank De Ocampo and wish him luck.

“Countless unforgettable moments [Ranidel] through the years. Always a champion on and off the court. He will bring that winning attitude and find success wherever he goes. [I’m so impressed with this person. Thanks for everything, Del]! It will be weird to not see you in practice anymore,” TNT assistant coach Josh Reyes posted on his Instagram.

“We are thankful for Ranidel’s service and sacrifice for TNT for the last 10 years. Built good relationships and memories along the way. He will surely be missed,” TNT head coach Nash Racela said in a text message to INQUIRER.net.
