After being traded from Alaska to Ginebra, I was excited and nervous as to what will happen to LA Tenorio's game. He is my favorite basketball player since his UAAP days. After watching his first game with Ginebra today, I feel very glad. He came out as the best player of the game having 2 points, 9 rebounds, 11 or 10 assists and 4 steals. This is probably the first time I saw LA Tenorio playing so comfortably and "happily" in PBA. I love watching point guards which explains why I like LA Tenorio. He is the purest point guard of my generation, in my opinion. His assists, steals, ability to lead a team, dictate tempo, make key baskets and smart decisions makes him a great point guard.
His first game as a Ginebra player is a real treat but I need to see one more game against one of the top PBA teams to prove that everything will go smoothly for LA. #LABigFan
LA Tenorio: "Kung ganito talaga magiging role ko, mas magiging komportable ako. I'm not a scorer talaga."
Caguioa: “He makes everything happen for us. He creates opportunities for the guys and honestly, dumali yung trabaho namin with LA around”
Helterbrand: “I don’t consider it a problem. We’re thankful to have him on our team. He does a lot of things for us. He breaks down the defense and he doesn’t panic. He makes everybody look good on the team and you can tell that our energy and confidence level were raised a notch higher with him around”
Coach Siot: “He brings a lot of intangibles and poise. There were instances when lumalapit na yung GlobalPort sa amin then LA created two or three turnovers. That’s the main reason we worked to get him. We need someone to take charge, make plays, make it easier for Mark and the other guys.”
