De La Salle Green Archers team captain Kib Montalbo was a happy camper earlier this week after finally getting to meet one of his basketball idols.
Montalbo took to twitter Wednesday evening and posted a picture of himself alongside PBA star Chris Ross of the San Miguel Beermen.
Montalbo chose a pretty good basketball idol to look up to, given that Ross is a six-time PBA champion a two-time PBA Finals MVP, and a former PBA Best Player of the Conference Awardee.
Montalbo is doing good for himself in the collegiate ranks as well, having already captured two UAAP titles with DLSU.
With the Bacolod-born playmaker set to play out his final year with DLSU this coming UAAP Season 81, it won't be a longshot if we see Montalbo and Ross play with, or against each other in the PBA one day.
For now however, Montalbo has his sights set on the UAAP, and in preparation, he and the Green Archers are set to jet to Taiwan to defend their BLIA Cup championship.
Now, the picture with Ross is nice and all, but something that caught the fans eyes is the little exchange Montalbo had with...special someone...DLSU Lady Spiker Desiree Cheng following the photo.
Obviously happy for Kib finally getting to meet his hero, Des replied with a playful "Yieeee", followed by a subtle jab at excited eyes.

As smooth as he is on the court, Montalbo has a pretty good comeback for Cheng.
