Terrence Romeo has truly moved on.
After beating Globalport in his first game as a member of TNT KaTropa, that particular basketball chapter for Terrence is over and done with.
Now, his sole focus is getting meshing well with his new teammates and hopefully win a lot of games.
At least on Sunday, it appears that those two goals have been checked.
"Masaya. Sobrang saya. Kaka-iba yung atmosphere sa bago kong team," Romeo said after TNT picked up its first win in the Commissioner's Cup.
"Tuwang-tuwa ako na part ako ng TNT. Lahat nagtutu-lungan, lahat nag-aangat. Kapag may nado-down, nandiyan yung kapwa ko teammates para i-cheer up ka and di mo na kailangan mag-isip ng marami sa game dahil lahat ng teammate mo magagaling. So, sobrang saya ko," he added.
While he's certainly happier now, Romeo actually struggled in his TNT on-court debut.
Terrence scored only 11 points and shot 30 percent from the field. He also had five turnovers.
Granted, it's only his third game of the season after a long down time due to injury.
"Wala pa talaga sa shape kasi yun talaga problema ko kahit sa tune-up games namin, mabilis pa ko mapagod. Ganun din sa game namin ngayon, naninibago pa ko," he said.
"Hindi ko alam kung kailan pa ko mapapagod. Hindi parang dati na simula umpisa hanggang matapos yung laro, ganun pa rin yung energy ko. Ibang-iba talaga. Kailangan mabalik ko yun. Hopefully, bago kami makarating sa gusto namin marating," Romeo added.
As for his defined role with the KaTropa, Terrence says the team is working on it.
"Dito medyo kinakapa ko pa. Nagpapasalamat talaga ako kay Jayson at kay Coach Nash dahil lagi nila ako nire-remind na nandiyan yung mga kasama ko at lagi nila ako gina-guide especially pagka... Yun nga matagal na ko hindi nakakapaglaro, naninibago pa ako," he said.
"So ayun, mahaba naman pasensya nila, sabi nila sa akin na babalik ulit yan. Ayun, thankful ako at pagbubutihan ko ito," Romeo added.
