San Mig Coffee head coach Tim Cone giving instructions to guard Alex Mallari. AKTV/Paolo PapaAlex Mallari is struggling to adjust to the complicated San Mig Coffee system, which comes as little surprise to coach Tim Cone.

“He’s playing the most complicated position in our system. It’s like one step backward, two steps forward for him,” Cone told InterAKTV.

“We know he’s going to struggle and we also knew we’re going to struggle with him.”

Cone had his eyes set on Mallari as far back as this season’s rookie camp, and finally got the opportunity to coach the lefty guard after pulling off a midseason trade.

And despite Mallari’s early struggles, Cone remains high on the player’s potential.
