BATANGAS CITY — Stanley Pringle’s Ginebra debut is a success.
Playing his first game as a Gin King since the blockbuster trade from Northport, Pringle started for the barangay and saw almost 36 minutes of action against NLEX here for the 2019 PBA Commissioner’s Cup.
Stanley shot 60 percent for 16 points to go along with eight rebounds, three assists, and two steals in a Ginebra win.
“Oh it’s great, wonderful experience,” Pringle said of his Ginebra debut.
“Great group of guys, great team, great coaching staff. I’m just glad they all welcomed me,” he added.
Pringle has less than a week’s worth practice with the Gin Kings but he says he’s getting along with his new team quite nicely.
As he settles into the barangay, Stanley says he’s just there to contribute in whatever way he can to the defending champs.
“The whole time, everybody’s just teaching me everything about the team, about offense and defense so it was really easy,” he said.
“It's a great organization, a great fanbase. I'm just here to help the team be the best team they can be and just help the team however I can,” Pringle added.
