PBA: Castro's guidance key to Terrence's TNT development
According to head coach Nash Racela, how Terrence Romeo works with Jayson Castro will be crucial for his integration with the flagship MVP franchise moving forward.

There are a lot of factors to consider when it comes to the new dynamic that is Terrence Romeo to TNT.

However, for it to truly work for both Romeo and the KaTropa, there's one key element to consider.

According to head coach Nash Racela, how Terrence Romeo works with Jayson Castro will be crucial for his integration with the flagship MVP franchise moving forward.

"If we're talking about Terrence, I think what's key now is Jayson's guidance," Racela said.

"Si Jayson has been really embracing that role of guiding the other players, the younger players, and really leading them. He makes the point to talk to them, at least every day I see him in practice really talking to the players," he added.

Similar to how Jimmy Alapag helped Castro settle down in the PBA before, the Blur is out to do the same for the Bro now.

"How Jimmy guided him when he was starting out in the PBA, I think that's exactly the role of Jayson now for his teammates," coach Nash said of his top point guard.

For his part, Romeo is ready to absorb everything he can from Castro.

In his TNT debut Sunday, in which he struggled offensively from the field, Terrence had a first-hand demonstration on just how Castro operates within his KaTropa squad.

"Nandiyan si Kuya Jayson para tulungan ako at yung team. Si Kuya Jayson kasi sobrang matured na at napagdaanan na niya yung lahat," Romeo said.

"So, dami ko pa dapat matutunan sa kanya. Ako naman, hindi ako magsasawa sa pakikinig sa kanya. Nagtatanong din ako pag may kailangan ako malaman," he added.
