Raymond Almazan’s debut for Meralco has to wait, but the Bolts still can’t wait to get their PBA Commissioner’s Cup going.
Main reason for such optimism is import Gani Lawal, who should offer a glimpse of his true worth when Meralco plays Blackwater Sunday in the kickoff game of the mid-season tourney at the Mall of Asia Arena.
The Bolts and Elite are both looking to get off on the right foot after finishing at 11th and 12th, respectively, in the season-opening Philippine Cup.
Bobby Parks Jr. is also set to play his first game for Blackwater, adding to the spice of what should be a thrilling tussle.
Parks, tabbed at No. 2 overall in last December’s draft, .delayed his PBA debut until his commitments to the Alab Pilipinas squad in the ABL were done with.
