PBA: Bolick took Stanley trade hard: “Umiyak pa nga ako”
Bolick, the Batang Pier’s no. 3 overall pick from last year’s Draft, has been very vocal about his relationship with Pringle.

Stanley Pringle’s blockbuster trade from Northport to Ginebra Tuesday got everyone shocked that’s for sure.

However, it seems like Northport rookie Robert Bolick took the trade the hardest.

Bolick, the Batang Pier’s no. 3 overall pick from last year’s Draft, has been very vocal about his relationship with Pringle.

The rookie really relished the opportunity to be teammates with one of the best point guards in this region. After that relationship lasted for pretty much just one conference, Bolick really felt the gravity of the situation.

It’s as if someone spoiled him the ending to a movie that he waited to watch for so long.

“Actually pinatay ko cellphone ko di ko matanggap, umiyak pa nga ako,” Bolick said, going back to the time he found out about the trade.

“It’s because gusto ko rin maging selfish, gusto ko pa siyang makasama nang matagal kasi Stanley’s one of the best players na nakasama kong makalaro in my position,” he added.

While Bolick welcomes the opportunity to play with Sol Mercado, Kevin Ferrer, and Jervy Cruz, the rookie admits that he’ll miss seeing Pringle in Batang Pier practice.

However, just because they’re no longer teammates doesn’t mean that Bolick can no longer stop learning from Stanley.

“We trust the management, we trust our coaches and everything. Move on. But again, gusto ko pa rin pagdating sa practice nandoon siya,” Bolick said of Pringle.

“Sabi niya, ‘Always remember na I’m always here, the phone is always open,’ gumaganun siya so may nararamdaman na ako [na emotions],” Bolick added.
