Slaughter thankful for BPC award, but wants PBA title the most

MANILA, Philippines – Greg Slaughter is grateful. The Best Player of the Conference – for the season-ending PBA Governors’ Cup – is nice. But for him, it’s a championship he wants.

“It’s a nice prize to have after working hard since I got my injury,” said the center for Barangay Ginebra. “But obviously, the real reward is winning a championship and hopefully, we can get that done.”

The seven-foot center has won with the University of Visayas Green Lancers and with the Ateneo Blue Eagles. He also has a PBA title with Barangay Ginebra also from last year’s season-ending conference. Slaughter played Game One then was sidelined the rest of the way with a knee injury.

Slaughter also dispelled thoughts that despite what seems to be a leaner frame, he is lighter on his feet.

“I actually weigh more than before,” explained Greg. “When I entered rehab, I had to start from scratch and I got to learn a lot of things with the help of my coaches. I learned how to strengthen my body and build more on that during our off time.”
