"Pag sa labas naman ng court, magka-kaibigan tayo. Trabaho lang." --- Kevin Ferrer.
Kevin Ferrer is good friends with Aljon Mariano and Jeric Teng, after all, they been through quite a lot since college.
The three were there with UST when the Growling Tigers went all the way to the UAAP Finals in Seasons 75 and 76. All of them served as captains for UST with Teng doing it in Season 76, Mariano doing it in Season 77, and Ferrer taking over in Season 78.
With all three in the PBA now and happened to be on the same court Friday during the Ginebra-Mahindra clash, all semblance friendship went out the window for one night only.
"Parang wala," Ferrer said on what it felt like to face Teng, whose now playing for the Floodbuster, with Mariano by his side. "Kasi laro lang."
While all three played sparingly, only Ferrer saw extended court time with just a shade under 20 minutes, it would still have been all business regardless for the three former King Tigers if they did actually came face-to-face-to-face on the floor.
Let's just be friends again after the game is over.
"Ako naman yung prinsipyo ko, kung kalaban ka, kalaban ka," Ferrer said, having the best game among the three with 12 points.
"Pag sa labas naman ng court, magka-kaibigan tayo. Trabaho lang," he added.
