PBA: Gin Kings geek out in the presence of Queen P

BOCAUE, Bulacan — Brgy. Ginebra had a little more motivation Sunday to open the PBA’s 44th Season at the Philippine Arena here.

That motivation goes by the name of Pia Wurtzbach.

The former Ms. Universe served as the muse for Ginebra for the official opening ceremony and safe to say, the Gin Kings were in awe to be at the presence of Queen P herself.

Seriously, they geeked out.

“I got to meet Pia Wurtzbach so that was exciting. She didn’t know who I was but I certainly knew who she was,” head coach Tim Cone said.

“She was in our locker room for like an hour. We were inspired. That’s what makes the opening day fun, to see all of that,” he added.

Motivation from Wurtzbach’s presence led to Ginebra taking a sensational opening-day win over TNT.

It’s that Ms. Universe magic no doubt.

“Nakakatuwa kasi si Queen P, iba talaga yung muse namin,” guard Scottie Thompson said.

“Meron din naman kaming Prince, si Prince Caperal. So Pia, the Queen meets the Prince. Motivated din kami, kasi Ms. Universe yung muse namin,” he added.

However, Scottie still has another beauty just above the Queen herself.
