James Yap not yet thinking of 10K points club despite nearing milestone
Only 12 players have so far made it to the list.
But the league may soon add a new name in the elite group as former two-time MVP James Yap of Rain or Shine is just 231 points away from reaching the impressive milestone.
Should Yap make it to the elite club, he would become the first millennial player to be part of the 10,000 points fraternity whose members include the likes of Codinera, Atoy Co, Ramon Fernandez and Alvin Patrimonio, Bogs Adornado, Robert Jaworski and Jojo Lastimosa–players who entered the league in the 1970s and 1980s.
Yap admitted he is thrilled on the prospect of joining the group but said it’s not yet on his mind.
“Katulad nung 1,000 three point shots. Hindi ko inisip yun, kusa na lang dumating, ” said Yap, who earlier in the season made his 1,000th career three-pointer, in an exclusive interview with InterA
