Kai on Edu:
"Iba yung samahan namin pag nasa court. Masaya ako na teammate ko siya. Ang tagal ko na rin siya gusto maging teammate simula nung naki-practice siya sa Ateneo. Excited ako. Special siya na player eh," --- Kai Sotto on AJ Edu.

For the dream twin tower combination of Kai Sotto and AJ Edu, chemistry and fit should be no problem.

This early in their partnership, the 7'2" Kai and the 6'10" AJ appear to have the basics down already. That should be music to anyone excited for this imposing Batang Gilas frontline.

Edu has expressed excited over the potential of his partnership with Kai. Sotto is no different.

"Maayos kasama yang si AJ," Sotto said when asked about Edu.

"Iba yung samahan namin pag nasa court. Masaya ako na teammate ko siya. Ang tagal ko na rin siya gusto maging teammate simula nung naki-practice siya sa Ateneo. Excited ako. Special siya na player eh," he added.

Forming perhaps the most talented youth frontline the Philippines has ever seen, Sotto is confident he can make it work with Edu.

The Kai-AJ tandem will be put to the test right away as Batang Gilas, backed ny Chooks-to-Go, is set to compete in the 2018 FIBA Asia Under-18 Championships in Thailand starting Sunday with a slot in the U-19 FIBA World Cup on the line.

"Marami kayong makikita pag pinagsabay kami," Sotto said.

"Kahit parehas kami na big man, iba rin yung nagagawa namin. Mas lalo sa defense kasi parehas kaming rim protector. Sa offense, salitan lang kami," he added.
