Jervy Cruz surprised but happy to be with the 'crowd favorite'



After spending the first six years of his PBA career playing for only one team, Jervy Cruz has had to endure a whirlwind journey where he’s found himself on three different clubs as he’s been shipped from one squad to another in a span of just a few months.

The 6-foot-3 forward Cruz started his career at Rain or Shine but was traded to GlobalPort prior to the current season and later moved to Barako Bull. Last Monday, he was traded to Barangay Ginebra – his fourth PBA team – and he’s hoping to have found one he can stick around with for a long time.

He admitted that his latest move came as a surprise to him.

“I was just surprised because I spent six years with Rain or Shine. I’m still not used to this. This is my fourth team in four months. That’s why I’m still in the adjustment period,” Cruz told Fraulein Olavario of News5.

“I wasn’t expecting this because I thought I would stay with GlobalPort because of Coach Pido who was also my college coach. It never occured to me that I would end up here.”

Cruz said that he was pleased to be joining Ginebra, a team that enjoys the support of a lot of fans.

“But I’m happy to be here with the crowd favorite,” he added.
