The TNT KaTropa has been breezing through the competition in the 2019 PBA Commissioner’s Cup.
Currently, the flagship team of the MVP Group is just a win away from barging into the Finals of the mid-season conference by trouncing defending champion Brgy. Ginebra in the first 2 games of its best-of-five semifinal series.
Much of the credit for the team’s surge in the ongoing conference has been given to Terrence Jones, the 27-year old former Houston Rockets forward who placed second to reigning Best Import Justin Brownlee in the statistical points race with 60.2, as against to Brownlee’s 61.8, after posting averages of 32.8 points, 15.8 rebounds, a league-leading 7.4 assists, 1.3 steals, and 2.9 blocks in 13 outings.
Jones’ remarkable performance has, not surprisingly, sparked calls for him to be the naturalized player of the Gilas Pilipinas Men’s team.
The 6-foot-9 native of Portland, Oregon, however, admitted that is not thinking about that for the moment as he is completely focused on TNT’s quest for a PBA crown.
“I’m not really focused on that. I’m focused on my team right now and trying to focus on getting to the championship,” said Jones.
“Right now, it’s not my concern. When this is over, and have time to settle down and think about the future, then we and my team, my agent will talk about that,” he added.
