It has to be weird seeing the reigning two-time best point guard in Asia come off the bench for his local team right?

Wrong.

Playing a reserve role for TNT in all of his four games this season, Jayson Castro has no complaints at all as the Blur basically started his PBA career backing up the legendary Jimmy Alapag.

He didn't have a problem then and he's not about to have problems now.

"Okay naman, kasi kung maalala niyo before kay coach Chot off the bench naman ako," Castro said following TNT's latest win in the Philippine Cup Friday, its fourth in six games.

"Sanay ako dun tsaka kumportable ako especially si coach Nash alam niya naman yung kaya kong ibigay sa team," he added.

Despite not starting games, the Blur has remained as reliable as ever averaging 19.3 points, 2.8 rebounds, and 5.5 assist per game in only 25.8 minutes of play.

And with the KaTropa ending their year tied for second place in the All-Filipino conference, it might be a while before Castro regains his starting role with the team.

Still, he's not complaining.

"Okay lang, desisyon naman nila yun so ako naman either off the bench or starter ako wala naman problema sakin, di big deal sakin as long as nanalo kami," the Blur said.
