PBA: New import wants to help Columbian “Prosper”
Prosper put up 26 points and 14 rebounds in 41 minutes, however, that wasn’t enough for the Dyip to pull out a win against the Hotshots. Columbian is now down to 1-4 following the loss.

Lester Prosper was solid in his PBA debut Sunday against Magnolia in the 2019 Commissioner’s Cup.

Prosper put up 26 points and 14 rebounds in 41 minutes, however, that wasn’t enough for the Dyip to pull out a win against the Hotshots. Columbian is now down to 1-4 following the loss.

“I did my job, I did what I had to do. They're obviously a championship team [Magnolia], you know. They played together. We gotta do a better job of communication and playing together,” Prosper said.

“But my debut is cool, you know? But I wanted the win, and obviously we didn't get that,” he added.

Despite a loss to start his first PBA stint, Prosper says he’s in it for the long run and wants to help this young Dyip team develop.

He’s positive that they can put together favorable results once they get to spend some more time together as a team.

“I'm in this for the long run. I'm not here to just come for a day or two and leave. I understand it's a process. we gotta trust our process,” Prosper said.

“These are young guys, and I'm gonna help them develop. I gotta continue to do what I gotta do and develop also. And we have to continue to build chemistry also. I think it's gonna go well,” he added.
