Cone bilib ni Andre Paras

GIANGKON ni Brgy. Ginebra Gin Kings coach Tim Cone nga nagtinguha unta silang kuhaon si Andre Paras sa miaging rookie draft sa Philippine Basketball Association (PBA) sa 1st round gumikan sa kapasidad niini sa rebounding department.

Hinuon human nila nabalanse ang tanan, nakadesisyon si Cone nga kuhaon ang 6-8 nga si Fil-Norwegian Ken Holmqvist isip No. 12 overall pick.

“We just really felt Ken was a little more versatile, kind of resembles Joe Devance,” matod ni Cone sa interbyu sa

“You know me how much I love Joe and how big he is to our system. And we just felt Ken might be able to fill in for Joe.

Si Paras usa sa mga rookie nga giimbitar sa Gin Kings nga moapil sa ilang pre-draft workouts ug nibilib si Cone niini.

“We really considered picking him (Paras),” pasabot ni Cone. “He has a big rep as a big-time rebounder. Rebounders always excite me. I always get excited having rebounders on the team. I think they’re very hard to groom. Rebounders are more natural.”

Gihimong ehemplo ni Cone si Scottie Thompson, kinsa usa sa labing maayo sa PBA kon hisgutan ang rebounds bisan dili kini tantong taas.

“We didn’t teach Scottie how to rebound. It became very natural for him. Andre was the same way, he’s a big-time rebounder.” (ESL)
