Ginebra’s Thompson wants another PBA title at expense of ex-NCAA rival Amer

MANILA, Philippines — Revenge has been the underlining theme in the upcoming PBA Governors’ Cup Finals.

And between last year’s champion Barangay Ginebra and runner-up Meralco, there’s a Gin King still looking to settle a score.

Scottie Thomspon, Ginebra’s versatile guard, was denied multiple times by counterpart Baser Amer in their collegiate days. The former, who was then playing for University of Perpetual Help, never got the chance to put the perennial contenders San Beda out of contention.

Even during his MVP-winning season in 2014, Thompson fell short in bringing the NCAA trophy to Las Piñas.

“Siguro dahil pula sila noon,” Thompson noted of Amer’s streak as an amateur champion with the Red lions. “Ngayon, ako naman ‘yung naka-pula. So sana ma-eliminate namin uli sila.”
