PBA Media Bureau

Disappointing as Rain or Shine’s campaign in the 2017 PBA Philippine Cup may have been, James Yap is hopeful that the team has learned its lessons going forward.

“Actually, we played well but we just fell short. Here is when we’ll be stronger, when you’re in this situation that you’re out of the conference. Here is where we’ll build trust in each other,” Yap said.

Yap ended his first conference with the Elasto Painters on Sunday with a 98-91 loss to San Miguel.

Yap averaged 10.7 points, 2.9 rebounds, and 1.4 assists in his first conference with Rain or Shine, but don’t be fooled, as he eyes to further blend in with the team’s core after the team’s short offseason break.

“There were times that I still get lost. It’s not going to be one click, and I’m already ok. But I’m getting there, so hopefully next conference, I can finally get it.” – INQUIRER.net
