THE moment Jeff Chan got ship to Barangay Ginebra, he already has a gut feel of probably winning a PBA championship or two with the popular franchise.

But this fast? Not really.

And so Chan imbibed the moment as he won his first ever title with the Kings just two months after being acquired by the ballclub via a trade with Phoenix.

“Sobrang saya. Hindi ko akalain na ngayong conference,” said an elated Chan after Ginebra dethroned San Miguel as Commissioner’s Cup champion, 93-77, in Game Six of the finals played before a roaring crowd of 20,490 at the Mall of Asia Arena.

“Akala ko next conference pa dahil nga defending champion kami ng Governors Cup.”
