Who’s sick and tired of Thompson triple-doubles?

NOTHING NEW. No one is no longer surprised that Scottie Thompson had another triple-double.
So what’s new? Scottie Thompson collected another triple-double – his seventh through 15 games in the season – to propel University of Perpetual Help to a tie for first on Tuesday at the San Juan Arena.
Another thing that isn’t new? The reigning MVP’s reaction to his accomplishment. Asked if it he makes it a point to go out and get a triple-double each and every game, he said, as humble as ever, “Siyempre, sana ganun nga. Pero trabaho lang talaga.”
His head coach, who said in an earlier interview that he’s no longer surprised with Thompson’s triple-doubles, said this time around, “Nagsasawa na nga ako e.”
Of course, Aric del Rosario was only kidding as he continued, “Pero lagi kong pinapaalala kay Scott, kahit hindi ka mag-triple-double, basta manalo.”
