Barangay Ginebra guard LA Tenorio wants to get his hands on the prestigious PBA Philippine Cup trophy badly.
“I’m really determined to win the All-Filipino. Kung mana-naturalize lang namin si Justin (Brownlee and get him to play as a local), nakuha na namin ang All-Filipino. Ganoon ko kagusto makuha ang all-Filipino,” said Tenorio, who brought up the next mission to coach Tim Cone just moments after the Gin Kings reclaimed the Governors’ Cup crown.
The 13-year pro owns five championship rings in all but his collection feels incomplete without the PBA”s crown jewel
“Lahat ng championship ko with imports,” said Tenorio, who has won four with Brownlee-reinforced Ginebra (2016, 2017 and 2019 Governors’ Cup and 2018 Commissioners Cup) and one with Diamon Simpson-bannered Alaska (2010 Fiesta Conference).
“Iba kasi iyung all-Filipino. Alam naman natin yun. But it’s not easy; kung mahirap itong pinagdaanan namin sa Governors’ Cup, siguro mas triple pagdadaanan namin to get that championship,” he added.
