New SMB import Chris McCullough says PH has the best fried chicken

San Miguel made a drastic decision in the ongoing 2019 PBA Commissioner’s Cup in the hopes that the move will change its fortunes in the mid-season tournament.

The Beermen did the unthinkable by replacing Charles Rhodes, the import who led them to the promised land during his first stint with the team just 2 years ago, with former NBA player Chris McCullough.

The 34-year old Rhodes, a former Best Import awardee, had decent averages of 26 points, 13.71 rebounds, 2.71 assists and 2.43 blocks in 7 games but could only lead the Beermen to 2 wins. Of the 5 losses, 2 were by more than 30 points (33 against NorthPort and 36 against Magnolia) while another one was to perennial league whipping boys Columbian.

The overtime loss to the Dyip proved to be the final nail on the coffin as Rhodes committed a game-high 9 turnovers.

The 6-foot-9 McCullough, a first-round NBA draft pick by the Brooklyn Nets in 2015, already attended the team’s practice sessions and while the jury is still out on whether the surprise move was indeed a good one, the new reinforcement has found for himself a reason to stay.

Enter Jollibee Chickenjoy.

Philippines got the best fried chicken don’t @ me“, wrote McCullough on his Twitter account.

Walks in Jollibees, let me get a 2 piece with rice extra gravy” If you know you know“, he added.

The fastfood giant has since replied with a tweet of its own.

McCullough makes his debut on Friday, July 5 against the NLEX Road Warriors at the MOA Arena with the Beermen hoping to arrest a 2-game slide and get back into the thick of the fight for a ticket to the next round.
