Jason Perkins on PBA Finals:
Perkins says he can't wait to get back on the court and he's also used the down time to focus on getting healthy both physically and mentally.

Jason Perkins has had a decent start to his PBA career.

Perkins was a top-4 pick and Rookie of the Year winner. He's also a main cog for an up-and-coming team in the Phoenix Super LPG Fuel Masters.

However, asked how he would rate his professional career so far, Perkins didn't even give himself a passing grade.

"I think maybe a six and a half [out of 10]. That's because I have high expectations for myself and when I envision my career, I want championships," Perkins said on a recent episode of PBA Kamustahan.

"We haven't been winning as much as I'd like. We made it to the semifinals and we lost [4-1 to San Miguel]. It's basically because we haven't made it to the Finals yet. I'll get there though," Perkins added about his low personal grade.

The PBA has been shut down for over four months now due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Perkins says he can't wait to get back on the court and he's also used the down time to focus on getting healthy both physically and mentally.

"A lot of players have little nagging injuries here and there, and we have  our personal needs for our bodies. So it's nice to have time to fulfill that and recover," he said.

"During this time, I've been able to work on the mental side of basketball I guess, watched a lot of game film. Even the NBA put up old games from the 1980s and 1990s, watched all of that," Perkins added.
