“Sana talaga sa mga next games ko, makuha ko talaga yung laro ko, yung healthy na Raymond Almazan,” — Raymond Almazan.
Raymond Almazan finally debuted for Meralco Friday in the 2019 PBA Commissioner’s Cup.
It wasn’t anything special but it was fine for what it was.
Playing a shade under 13 minutes, Almazan contributed three points in a Meralco win. It was a good first step after all the nagging injuries he’s had to deal with this season.
“Sobrang excited ako. Gusto ko lang makatulong sa team kung ano yung kailangan ni Coach Norman,” Almazan said.
“Sa mga susunod na games, sana makuha ko yung timing ko. Medyo late pa reaction. Pero makukuha ko yun siguro mga ilang games lang, parang pagpag lang ganun,” he added.
After a long layoff, Almazan is just happy to be back.
Finally healthy, Almazan is thankful to get a second chance at basketball and with a new team too.
“Sobrang thankful kasi hindi naman lahat ng player nabibigyan ng chance. I’m coming from an injury, three months ata. So every opportunity na binibigay sakin ginagamit ko talaga,” Almazan said.
“Sana talaga sa mga next games ko, makuha ko talaga yung laro ko, yung healthy na Raymond Almazan,” he added.
