After a rather controversial end to his stint with Meralco last season, Kelly Nabong is finding new life in his latest stint with Globalport.

Nabong continued his great start to the season Friday after the Batang Pier whipped Blackwater, scoring 16 points to go along with seven rebounds and five assists.

Never without confidence, the veteran forward says that he's at home with the Batang Pier now.

"I always have my confidence," he said.

"It just had to be the right situation with the right team and the right coach. My confidence is flourishing right now," Nabong added.

True enough, the presence of head coach Pido Jarencio has been a positive impact for Kelly.

Pido's free-flowing style appears to suit Nabong best.

"I love coach Pido. I love him. We're like twins, kalbo," Nabong said.

"Free-flowing system, make the extra pass, hit the open guys and just run. Takbo, takbo!" he added.
