Air21 head coach Franz Pumaren. AKTV/Paul Ryan TanWith Air 21 having lost three straight games, coach Franz Pumaren is recommending the acquisition of a point guard and a wingman to plug holes in the Express lineup to team executive Lito Alvarez.

“Bahala na si Boss Lito. Siya na tuma-trabaho dyan. The important thing is we’ve already told him the players that we need,” Pumaren told InterAKTV in an exclusive interview.

The Express absorbed their fourth setback in five games and wound up in a tie for last spot with new team GlobalPort in the standings.

Prior to the start of the season, the Express undertook a massive buildup, acquiring KG Canaleta, John Wilson, Noy Baclao, Rob Reyes, and Bonbon Custodio via trade and drafting Yousef Taha and Simon Atkins.

But the injury bug bit Air 21 early, with Reyes, Custodio, and Eric Salamat ailing.
