PBA: No pressure as Wells gears up for Grand Slam bid
The Beermen are going after a PBA Grand Slam and the first stop to that goal was last week in Macau for the East Asia Super League’s The Terrific 12 tournament.

A huge responsibility has been put on the shoulders of Dez Wells at San Miguel Beer.

The Beermen are going after a PBA Grand Slam and the first stop to that goal was last week in Macau for the East Asia Super League’s The Terrific 12 tournament.

San Miguel, specifically Wells, did well in the tournament, finishing in the top four.

The attention now turns to the 2019 Governors’ Cup where the Beermen start their triple crown bid Wednesday. It’s a huge deal especially since San Miguel failed this exact mission two years ago.

This is the team’s second chance and the pressure is on. Wells is not about to get overwhelmed by the situation however.

“I don’t feel any pressure about anything in my life,” Wells said.

“If you see how I grew up and the things I’ve gone through, I feel like everything I’ve been through in my life has brought me to this point to be ready,” he added.

As the Beermen start their Grand Slam bid, Wells will be leaning on his team just as much as his team will be leaning on him.

Wells is not going to win the Governors’ Cup title and San Miguel can’t win this championship without its new super import. It’s going to be a collective effort on the part of the Beermen to achieve history.

“I just lean on my coaches, on my teammates,” Wells said.

“They give me all the confidence that I need, when I need to I can lean on them to step up [as well]. Moving forward, those guys have the championship pedigree, putting me in this position or on this team, it just allows things to come together,” he added.
