Kevin Ferrer's young PBA career has been all about earning Tim Cone's trust.
And with his best outing yet in Ginebra's demolition of Mahindra, the former UST Growling Tiger is confident he got some good points with his champion mentor.
"Masaya, kasi parang binigyan kami ng opportunity ni coach Tim so grinab naming mga rookies. Nagpapasalamat din ako sa mga teammates ko kasi sila yung nagpu-push sakin na tumira ka lang, basta libre ayun. Binibigyan nila ako ng kumpiyansa," Ferrer said after firing 12 points, all from deep, in 20 minutes of play Friday.
While he turned in his best PBA performance yet, Ferrer acknowledges that he needs to earn Cone's trust a little more.
"Konti pa lang, pero kailangan pa mag-earn [ng trust]. Hindi naman ako titigil sa pag-[trabaho] eh," Ferrer said.
"Kung anong trust man ni coach Tim sakin, bibigyan ko siya ng reason, ibabalik ko sa kanya yung na-earn ko na [trust]," he added.
