Codiñera reminds PBA-bound Flores: Train hard, develop your game

Being drafted is one thing, staying in the league is another.

Those were the last reminders Arellano coach Jerry Codiñera gave to his hardworking big man Lervin Flores going into the 2017 PBA Rookie Draft.

And after the 25-year-old was selected ninth overall in the annual rookie proceedings, the PBA legend is just hoping for the best for his former slotman.

“I already told him everything I needed to tell him. All I can say is for him to have good luck,” said Codiñera.

Flores averaged 10.2 points, 8.7 rebounds, 1.8 blocks, and 1.3 assists in his final year with the Chiefs, solidifying his case as one of the top defensive players in the collegiate league.

But for Codiñera, who built a PBA lore on the defensive end which earned him the moniker “The Defense Minister,” establishing the same reputation in the PBA for Flores is a different story.
