Barangay Ginebra San Miguel is not resting on its laurels after retaining the season-ending PBA Governors’ Cup, with coach Tim Cone promising more championships for their legions of fans to enjoy.
“I always said we didn’t come to Ginebra to win just one championship, we always wanna win many championships and so this is our job,” Cone told the record crowd of 54,086 after Ginebra’s 101-95 victory over Meralco in Friday’s deciding seventh game at the Philippine Arena here.
“We’re not gonna stop here, we got more to get guys, we got more to come,” added Cone, whose latest victory enhanced his status as the winningest coach in PBA history with 20 titles.
Cone’s latest addition to his championship collection had him witnessed another timely performance from LA Tenorio, who was later named as Cignal-PBA Press Corps Finals Most Valuable Player after scoring 26 points spiked by five triples.
Behind Tenorio, Greg Slaughter, Joe Devance and Scottie Thompson, Ginebra led by a high of 20 points twice, including one in the third when Tenorio erupted for 10 points in the period.
