Mission accomplished for Chris McCullough.
Arriving mid-conference to save San Miguel Beer’s campaign, McCullough is now a PBA champion after powering the Beermen to a 4-2 series win over TNT in the 2019 PBA Commissioner’s Cup.
In Game 6 to finish the series off, McCullough scored 35 points on 50 percent shooting to go along with 13 rebounds and four blocks.
“It feels good to be a champion,” McCullough said.
“Besides high school, this is my first time. I’m a pro, this is my first championship. We were down 2-5 when I got here and we came and we won a championship,” he added.
Despite sparking San Miguel’s incredible turnaround, McCullough won’t call himself the team’s savior.
But it’s hard to not see him as such considering the Beermen won the title as a 7th seed and were on the brink of elimination multiple times throughout the season.
“Not at all,” C-Mac said on his savior tag.
“I just came in and helped the team, that’s it,” he added.
Now a champion, McCullough has more important business to attend to.
After professing his love for Jollibee’s world-famous Chicken Joy, McCullough is about to get his fix to celebrate the occassion.
“Tonight? A lot. I’m about to go right now and get that to be honest,” McCullough said.
“Two-piece with extra gravy,” he added.
