Ray Parks Jr. finally made his PBA debut Sunday, suiting up for Blackwater to open the 2019 Commissioner’s Cup.
While Parks had a rough shooting night, making six out of 19 attempts, he finished with 20 points to help the Elite get an overtime win against the Meralco Bolts.
At the end of everything, that’s all that matters. It’s the win that counts.
“We got the win, it’s the most important thing. Rough shooting night, still adjusting but at the end of the day we got the win,” Parks said.
“Just another day, I played in a lot of different leagues already. I understand that the PBA is the most prestigious league here and I just wanna do my work. As much as possible, try to get more wins than we had last conference,” he added.
This early, things are definitely looking up for Blackwater with Parks on deck.
The Elite were a miserable 2-9 in the All-Filipino for last place and while the team is still only at 1-0 so far, that’s a step in the right direction. The challenge now is how to sustain the winning ways and improve moving forward.
“A win is a win but I know we have a lot to work on. We’re still hungry for more wins and we have to get better in order to beat the other top-tier teams,” Parks said.
“For me I’m happy to be here, I’m happy to help the team. I just wanna start this new chapter in my career in the PBA and I’m excited for it,” he added.
