‘No favorite, no underdog’ in Ginebra-Meralco series, says Tenorio

Barangay Ginebra point guard LA Tenorio sees the finals rematch against Meralco as dead even ahead of tipoff.

Tenorio has a point. Both teams are healthy and the Bolts have brought in additional firepower to level the return of Greg Slaughter to the Gin Kings and the acquisition of Kevin Ferrer from the draft.

“There’s no favorite and underdog in this series. It’s going to be 50-50,” Tenorio told INQUIRER.net.

“There are no injuries to either team and they’ve also added firepower in Ranidel,” he said, singling out the veteran forward Ranidel de Ocampo, who has been a perfect fit for the Bolts.

The 33-year-old Tenorio said both teams present a difficult matchup to each other.

The Gin Kings have the size advantage with the 7-foot Slaughter and 6-foot-9 Japeth Aguilar upfront while the Bolts flaunt a versatile roster led by the do-it-all import Allen Durham.
