Mark Caguioa is no longer motivated chasing individual glory.
After cementing his legacy as one of the PBA’s greatest by joining the elite 10,000-point club, Caguioa said all he wants now is to win a couple more championships before hanging his sneakers.
“Ang hinahanap ko na lang is more championships before I retire,” Caguioa said after reaching the milestone late in Friday’s 106-92 win over NLEX at the Smart Araneta Coliseum.
The feat made Caguioa the 16th player to reach the five-figure mark, putting him alongside the likes of Ramon Fernandez, Atoy Co, Alvin Patrimonio and Robert Jaworski.
Reaching the feat wasn’t on the cards of Caguioa, a virtual unknown when he was picked by Ginebra at third overall in the 2001 much to the surprise of many Kings fans.
Caguioa eventually won the hearts of those Ginebra supporters, by helping the franchise win seven championships while capturing his lone Most Valuable Player award in 2012.
