Time to give a little update on what the word is on some of the imports that will be used in the upcoming PBA Commissioner’s Cup. We will be doing this on a weekly basis just to keep you in the loop with what the word is around the internet and in person with the reinforcements for your teams.
One import has already been canned and two others have already come to Manila. So, what’s the word? The bird’s the word. A ba-ba-bird bird bird. The bird’s the word.
Barako Bull Energy Cola – Evan Brock
Age: 28NBA Experience: 2 points worth.
Status: Confirmed by Quinito Henson
The first move from Coach Rajko Toroman as the new head coach for the Barako Bull Energy Cola. Evan Brock played a total of four games in the NBA and scored two points in 57 minutes. But, Brock is more known for what he did in the ABL where he was a definite force out there. He finished last season with an average of 23.2 points per game and nine boards.
Bold move here by Coach Rajko. Scrapping the proven scorer in Al Thornton for Evan Brock is a big gamble. Big time win and spend a night in the Presidential suite or go home crying in the fetal position while in the shower. Toroman is a coach that needs good work ethics from his players. That is something that was always questionable from Thornton in the NBA. Let’s see if Brock can bring some hustle and dominance in the post like did in the ABL.
