Cone feels a healthy 'Gregzilla' will be the perfect foil vs 'Kraken'

MANILA -- Barangay Ginebra coach Tim Cone feels confident he has a healthy Greg Slaughter in his team this PBA Philippine Cup and that he is their key to toppling reigning champion San Miguel Beer.

He believes that right now, only “Gregzilla” can handle a behemoth like the 6-foot-9, 270-pound “Kraken” June Mar Fajardo of the Beermen.

“He’s the only real answer to June Mar and we’re fortunate to have him,” Cone told Spin. “This is really his conference.”

Slaughter, who stands 7-foot-tall, had an impressive Philippine Cup debut on Christmas Day, scoring 24 points on 10-of-14 field goal shooting to go with 13 rebounds and 4 block shots.

These numbers helped the Gin Kings sink the Magnolia Hotshots, 89-78, in their Manila Clasico match.

“People don’t remember that two years ago in the all-Filipino, he was leading the league in scoring and rebounding, and he was just having an awesome conference,” said Cone.
