Despite early vacation, Gabe Freeman believes: ‘Ginebra is best PBA team, by far’

April 23, 2014

Brgy. Ginebra import Gabe Freeman. Sports5/Pranz Kaeno BillonesBarangay Ginebra San Miguel booked an early vacation after getting knocked out by top seed Talk ‘N Text in the PLDT Home TVolution Commissioner’s Cup quarterfinals on Tuesday.

But despite the lowly finish, the Gin Kings’ talent level remains on top of the league, if you ask import Gabe Freeman.

“Ginebra is the best team in the PBA –by far. They just have to put it together,” said the two-time Best Import winner, who played two games for the Gin Kings.

“Sometimes you might have the pieces in the puzzle, but you’ve got to find the instructions to the puzzle. We’ve got to put it on the court. On paper, we’re one of the best teams, but on the court, we’ve got to put it together.”...

TNT import Richard Howell attacks the defense of Ginebra's Greg Slaughter. Jeff VenancioAfter finishing the 2014 PBA Philippine Cup at the top of the elimination round, the Barangay Ginebra Kings are the third team to exit in the Commissioner’s Cup after dropping a lopsided 97-84 game to the undefeated Talk ‘N Text Tropang Texters, the final 13-point difference far from being a gauge of just how dominant the Tropang Texters were.

The Kings thought the energy that replacement import Gabe Freeman brought was enough to slap them out of their slump. It was enough for the first half against Rain or Shine in their last elimination round game, but not nearly enough against the Tropang Texters, who have been playing flawless basketball as of late.

After letting the Kings hang around in the first half, Talk 'N Text unleashed a crippling scoring run in the third quarter to leave the Kings behind for good....
