After Ginebra almost botched the ending of Manila Clasico on Sunday, there's only one thing left to do for the defending champion Gin Kings.
Work on their free throws.
And that means Richard del Rosario's School of Free Throw Shooting is back in business.
The always entertaining Ginebra assistant coach put this out on his social media right after the Gin Kings barely escaped Star in overtime in the 2017 Governors' Cup. The Gin Kings were 12-of-30 from the stripe. Star was a perfect 16-of-16.
Ginebra missed four of six free throws in the final 22 seconds of regulation, allowing Star to force extra time.
Come the overtime period, the Gin Kings still could not complete their charities, leaving the door open for the Hotshots until the final seconds.
Ginebra can afford to make jokes out of the whole free throw debacle now because they won but what if the Gin Kings lost a big game with that kind of performance from the stripe?
It's not going to be pretty that's for sure.
At least the entire team knows that they need to improve from the line and luckily for Ginebra, they have an expert working for them.
"Oh yeah," Justin Brownlee said before bursting into laughter.
"Coach Richard, that's our free throw guy right there," he added.
