After his entire PBA experience lasted a whole three days and two games, Lou Amundson is taking a chill pill before he plans his next basketball move.

Wrapping up his TNT stint in bittersweet fashion, the NBA veteran is off for a quick vacation.

"I'll try to see some of the islands. I'll go to Palawan for a few days, relax by the beach, get some sun, and fly back home,' Amundson said after playing his last game of the 2017 Commissioner's Cup Sunday in a win against the Phoenix Fuel Masters.

Knowing for a fact that he has merely holding the fort for TNT until import Donte Greene arrives to power the KaTropa, Amundson nevertheless enjoyed his brief time with the flagship MVP franchise.

Part of the experience was being around a close TNT team that has been playing together for more than a couple of years now.

"I think it was a blessing to have these group of guys and welcome me with open arms and with love, integrate me like they did," Amundson said.

"It felt really nice. I’m just very grateful for this team and these players. I wish we could have won on Friday [vs. Meralco] and helped the team more, but I just tried to play my game and give the team a lift," he added.

With his first overseas stint over in one weekend after playing for almost a decade in the NBA, Amundson is now on the lookout for another team.

A return to the NBA or even the PBA remain options for the former New York Knick.

"I hope so. Youll never know. We’ll see what happens," he said on a possible NBA return.

"Hopefully find another team, hopefully a good European team. This is my first experience outside of the NBA and outside of the US so I’m just trying to enjoy it and be in the moment and enjoy this experience," Amundson said.
