Kevin Ferrer ‘trusting the process’ as a rookie in loaded Ginebra roster

December 03, 2016

 Barangay Ginebra's Kevin Ferrer | PBA Media BureauMANILA, Philippines — Kevin Ferrer pocketed a rookie contract that puts a target behind his back.

But in his debut against TNT, he was far from the lethal version of himself.

“Siyempre as a rookie naman, ‘di naman madaling makuha ‘yung loob ni coach Tim (Cone),” Ferrer, who finished the game with only three markers, said.  “Kailangan ko pang pagtrabuhan ‘yung playing time ko at ‘yung trust niya sakin....

"Siyempre, challenge din sa akin kung paano bumawi," said Ferrer after their defeat. "At saka 'di ko muna tinitingnan 'yung points."...

November 29, 2016

With its usual venues already committed to hosting other events in the coming Christmas season, the PBA has deemed it best to take a shot at its all-time live attendance record by bringing the blockbuster game of the Philippine Cup eliminations to the cavernous Philippine Arena in Bocaue, Bulacan.

There were a total of 52,612 fans that flocked to the ultra-modern venue during opening day two seasons ago as matches pitting then-newcomers Blackwater and KIA preceded the Barangay Ginebra-Talk ‘N Text contest.

Not only was that doubleheader highlighted by the Gin Kings, it also featured Manny Pacquiao in his professional basketball debut as he inspired the then-Enforcers to a tight win over the Elite....
