As soon as it was announced that Terrence Jones play for TNT, it was known that the former Houston Rocket would be the best import in the 2019 PBA Commissioner’s Cup.
On Sunday, that became officially official.
Jones bagged the first Best Import award of the current PBA season, a formality of sorts as he’s been far and away the most talented reinforcement in the mid-season joust.
Just like how his KaTropa ended Ginebra’s title reign, Jones dethroned Gin Kings hero Justin Brownlee as Best Import. Jones also managed to hold off a late challenge by San Miguel’s Chris McCullough.
T-Jones led the statistical points race and through the semifinals, he had averages of 30.2 points, 15.7 rebounds, a league-high 7.5 assists, 1.5 steals, and 2.8 blocks.
Jones led the KaTropa tona 10-1 finish to take the top overall seed and in the semifinals, he powered TNT’s 3-1 demolition of Brgy. Ginebra.
They also currently lead the Finals against San Migue Beer, 2-1.
Jones is the first TNT Best Import in five years or since Richard Howell won for the Tropang Texters in the 2014 Commissioner’s Cup.
