“Little by little, the goal is to stay, prolong the career. Lesson learned sakin yung absence ko, it taught me me a lot about life,” Al-Hussaini said.
One particular player made his return to Blackwater Friday, a player that made the headlines for not the best of reasons even before the current PBA season started.
Rabeh Al-Hussaini officially made his season debut for the Elite, marking his first PBA game since his latest AWOL situation in late December last and early January this year.
In the win against Columbian, Rabeh had a respectable showing of 11 points and four rebounds in 18 minutes of play.
“I mean, thankful talaga ako kay Coach Bong to give me another shot, regardless kung ano man yung nangyari sa personal life ko,” he said.
“Yun, happy to be back,” Rabeh added.
Al-Hussaini said his recent personal troubles have helped him to be a better man and a better basketball player.
He hopes to use the trials he went through as a springboard for a better future.
“May nangyari sa personal life ko na hindi ko inaasahan so I had to take care of that first. It’s just a matter of overcoming whatever problems that I have. Okay naman ngayon,” he said.
“Little by little, the goal is to stay, prolong the career. Lesson learned sakin yung absence ko, it taught me me a lot about life,” Al-Hussaini added.
