Can Cone give Ginebra a championship?

July 28, 2015

Tim Cone. ABS-CBN News File Photo.MANILA, Philippines – Celebrated head coach Tim Cone is expected to break Ginebra's championship drought that now spans eight seasons, but the multi-titled mentor stressed that for this to happen, he needs the Gin Kings to "buy in" to the system that he brings.

Cone's triangle offense is tried-and-tested, having made him the winningest head coach in the PBA with 18 championships, including a Grand Slam with Alaska and Purefoods.

He is being tasked to bring that winning tradition to Ginebra, the league's most popular team, and Cone is hopeful that the Gin Kings will be quick to welcome his system.

"It's really going to come down if I can get the players to buy in to what we're going to do," he explained, as quoted by PBA.ph. "I know we talk about the run-and-gun and such, but it's really to get the guys to buy in defensively."...

Cone excited to have Ginebra fans on his side this time

July 27, 2015

Tim Cone. PBA IMAGESOnce a fierce rival to the Ginebra side, coach Tim Cone now finds himself allies with the rowdy barangay.

And as he opens a new chapter in his already legendary coaching career, Cone is hoping to follow the footsteps done by another famed Ginebra coach of the past.

“I think one of the reasons Sonny Jaworski was successful in coaching Ginebra that was that he took the pressure all by himself and kept the pressure away from the players. Because he’s such a polarizing figure, he could absorb all the pressures and his players could just go out and play. It’s a difficult thing to find that balance and not get overwhelmed,” he said....

Ginebra coach Tim Cone to dust off Lakers’ old Shaq playbook for Greg Slaughter

July 27, 2015

Greg Slaughter. Sports5/Pranz Kaeno BillonesTim Cone is a firm believer in the triangle offense and he’s already planning how to bring some of the elements of his triple-post philosophy to his new team, Barangay Ginebra San Miguel.

Cone will need to make some adjustments to fit his new personnel, which includes 7-foot center Greg Slaughter, the anchor of his team’s new offense. To do that, Cone will likely be taking a page from Phil Jackson’s old Los Angeles Lakers team that featured a dominant big man of its own, Shaquille O’Neal.

“Oh my, I have to go back to my old Shaq tapes and videos and review my Shaq videos for him,” Cone told sportswriters....
