“Pag iniisip mo na kung paano ka mananalo, mas makakalimutan mo na kailangan ikaw lagi yung bida eh. Di mo kailangan laging bida, importante manalo team.” — Finals MVP Terrence Romeo said. (Photo by Arvin Lim)

This is all thanks to his new family.
“Unang-una masaya talaga. Pero lahat ng ito dahil kay God, wala naman may control ng kapalaran natin kung hindi siya eh,” Romeo said as he talked about his current banner year in 2019 after a horror 2018.
“Siguro work hard nandoon, pero thankful din ako dahil sa kumupkop sakin si boss RSA, boss Alfrancis. Kung hindi dahil sa kanila di ako mapupunta sa SMB. Winelcome din ako ng mga teammates ko, sobrang welcome ako sa kanila kaya malaki pa-salamat ko sa kanila,” he added.
Earning his stripes with the Beermen, Romeo has learned to play his role with the team.
With so many stars in the loaded San Miguel rotation, multiple players have shined when the lights were at their brightest.
Now it’s Terrence’s turn but nobody call him the hero of this team. The Beermen are not about that life.
“Pag iniisip mo na kung paano ka mananalo, mas makakalimutan mo na kailangan ikaw lagi yung bida eh. Di mo kailangan laging bida, importante manalo team,” Romeo said.
“May mga games na four attempts lang ako pero panalo kami. May mga times na kailangan scoring ko. Hindi na mahalaga kung sino maraming points or kung sino Best Player every game, sa thinking ng lahat ng players ng SMB, kahit si June Mar na pinaka-magaling sa liga, ganun din. Unselfish. Para sakin, yun na-adapt ko sa SMB. Para laging panalo, dapat ma-adapt mo na maging unselfish ka,” Terrence added.
