Tingnan ko kung kaya ko pa next year -- four-time Slam Dunk winner Rey Guevarra
BATANGAS CITY –- Phoenix high-flyer Rey Guevarra just got his fourth Slam Dunk title in five years Friday.
Once again, the 31-year old forward dazzled the crowd that trooped the Batangas City Sports Coliseum here to watch the 2018 PBA All-Star Games with his aerial display of athleticism, which included a slam dunk over a man and a motorcycle.
Currently, Guevarra is just a title away from tying the feat of legendary Slam Dunk contest phenom KG Canaleta.
Now, the question is, will the Letran product gun to equal Canaleta’s five titles?
“In God’s time,” he answered, when asked about shooting for Canaleta’s record, which the current Meralco veteran did in 2005-2007, 2010 and 2012. “Tingnan ko kung kaya ko pa next year.”
Guevarra, who made a three-peat from 2014 to 2016 before relinquishing his throne to Chris Newsome of Meralco last year, bested Renz Palma in the sudden death, 40-39, after a 75-75 deadlock in the final round.
Definitely, there is no stopping Guevarra.
“Kung mabigyan ako ng chance siyempre pupunta ako talaga, ta-try kong kunin (ulit ang title),” he said.
