Terrence Romeo copped his first ever PBA Finals MVP award after an impressive performance against former team TNT in the 2019 Commissioner’s Cup championship series won by San Miguel, 4-2.
The 27-year old Imus, Cavite native averaged 14.8 points, 4.3 rebounds, and 2.3 rebounds in the 6 games of the best-of-seven Finals series with a high of 29 points in the crucial Game 2 victory on his way to collecting his second consecutive title with the Beermen.
Romeo, who was acquired by San Miguel from TNT in exchange for Brian Hereula, David Semerad and a 2021 first-round pick prior to the start of the season, came off the bench to contribute 10 points and 7 assists in the title-clinching Game 6 win.
“Unang-una masaya talaga. Pero lahat ng ito dahil kay God, wala naman may control ng kapalaran natin kung hindi siya eh,” said the 3-time PBA scoring champion in his acceptance speech.
“Siguro work hard nandoon, pero thankful din ako dahil sa kumupkop sakin si boss RSA, boss Alfrancis. Kung hindi dahil sa kanila di ako mapupunta sa SMB. Winelcome din ako ng mga teammates ko, sobrang welcome ako sa kanila kaya malaki pa-salamat ko sa kanila,” he added.
