RJ Jazul hopes to bring Alaska’s family-oriented environment to Phoenix

PBA Media Bureau

RJ Jazul was telling a reporter he intends to build a family-oriented culture with his new team Phoenix, the same kind of atmosphere he got so accustomed to during his stay with Alaska, a team he played for four seasons before being traded last month.

But Jazul was momentarily interrupted in the middle of the interview after his rookie teammate Gelo Alolino, who had just finished putting up extra shots after practice.

“He’s really my idol. He’s everyone’s idol here,” said Alolino, smiling.

If it was any indication, Jazul is already making his presence felt in just a short span of time with the Fuel Masters. Somehow, someway, Jazul has created a jovial vibe among players.

“Alaska’s known to be family-oriented and we’re not just teammates there, we’re brothers. So hopefully, I can incorporate that here because having a solid bond with your teammates will also make us a better team,” Jazul told INQUIRER.net.
