BPC plum ‘validation’ of hard work, says Slaughter

Coming off a devastating ACL injury that sidelined him for the better half of last year, all Greg Slaughter wanted was to return to form and help Ginebra get back to title contention.

Little did he know that all of his efforts will eventually bear fruit as he came back in the 2017 PBA Governors’ Cup stronger than ever, enough for him to win the Best Player of the Conference in the season-ending tourney.

“It’s indeed a validation for all the hard work I put in,” he told the INQUIRER. “Coming back from the injury I’ve been in, I feel thankful to be in this position again and to receive awards like this is just indescribable. It’s always great to win your first.”

Slaughter was stellar all conference long, leading the Gin Kings to a return trip to the Finals with his averages of 14.69 points, 8.75 rebounds, 1.69 assists, and 1.63 blocks.

Bagging his first BPC trophy also brings back the talks of his rivalry with five-time BPC winner and three-time PBA Most Valuable Player June Mar Fajardo to life.
