Rookie jitters gone, Meralco's Newsome vows to show better form in finals

MANILA, Philippines — Call it Chris Newsome’s redemption tour of the finals.

After booking the first seat in the PBA Governors’ Cup Finals, the sophomore guard assured he is going to flaunt an improved version of himself in the grandest stage of the conference.

“This time around, I think I'll be more hungry than the first time. I got those first-time jitters out,” he declared.

And that’s quite a promise, considering he capped off his freshman stint as the league’s Rookie of the Year.

Although Newsome also noted that that does not only go for him, as the loss to Ginebra in the 2016 Governors’ Cup dealt not only a big heartache to his teammates but also lessons to remember as the season progressed.

“[I] think that goes to a lot of the guys — we all got those first-time jitters out,” Newsome added.
