“Prove them wrong.”

But for the youthful mentor, it’s not just a statement but also a mindset for his embattled Picanto crew as they enter the 2018 PBA Philippine Cup without any expectations but with a lot of doubters.

“I wore this for a reason today. I told everybody, ‘Prove everybody wrong today.’ I told them you have no idea how many people have doubted us but you know I gave everybody this baller early in our season that says, ‘Nothing’s impossible with God,’ and that’s the mindset going in,” Gavina said as he once again donned that shirt on his way out of Filoil Flying V Centre in San Juan.

And if this first game against the Road Warriors is any indication, the Picanto’s unconventional ways could be taken seriously as they pushed their opponents to the limit before bowing in the end, 119-115.
