PBA All-Interview Team: The Best of Beau Belga
Paul Kennedy Lintag on Mar 24, 2020 02:57 PM
Ever the showman, Beau was all about his gun-firing celebration after a win against San Miguel last season.
Much like on-court performances, some PBA personalities are just better than others when it comes to how they address and carry themselves with the media.
Each year, the PBA Press Corps fills out the All-Interview Team, PBA personalities who consistently give out quotable quotes.
More than the soundbytes however, winners of the All-Interview team are five players and a head coach who always take time out of their busy schedule to make themselves available for the Press Corps.
Beau Belga is one member of the 2019 PBA All-Interview team. Here are some of the Rain or Shine bruiser's best from last season.
"Solohin niya na lang ulit next game para masaya."
Beau said this about San Miguel Beer import Chris McCullough after Game 3 of the Commissioner's Cup semifinals between Rain or Shine and the Beermen.
McCullough exploded for 51 points, but ROS got the win to cut its series deficit in half.
Belga says they'd rather have McCullough score big as long as they get the win. In fact, Beau was fine if C-Mac ended up scoring 70 in Game 4 so long as the Elasto Painters forced a Game 5.
Unfortunately, we all know how this series ended for ROS.
“Di ko naman babarilin mga kasama ko tsaka mga fans namin eh."
ROS' Game 3 win over San Miguel in the 2019 Commissioner's Cup semifinals was a lot of fun, and Belga supplied most of the fire works.
Ever the showman, Beau was all about his gun-firing celebration after hitting two clutch triples to push the Elasto Painters to victory.
He didn't care less if anyone got hit by his imaginary bullets, so long as all the pro-ROS people were safe.
"Para kaming hindi nadala eh, di ba?"

In the 2018 season, Columbian got a grand total of six wins, three of them were at the expense of Rain or Shine.
In the 2019 season, the Elasto Painters continued to struggle against the Dyip, losing their lone game in the Philippine Cup.
ROS finished as the no. 2 seed in the All-Filipino, and the loss was certainly a factor as to why they didn't end up number one.
Safe to say, Belga was stupefied as to why they can't deal with Columbian.
The Elasto Painters almost went 0-5 in five games to Columbian over five conferences, but they finally snapped the streak with a double-overtime win in the Commissioner's Cup.
