JAMES Yap is aware sooner or later his remarkable PBA career will be coming to an end.
And so before the curtain finally closes, ‘Big Game’ James hopes to achieve a feat for his swan song.
“Pang three years ko na sa Rain or Shine so sana bago man lang matapos yung career ko makapag-champion din naman sa Rain or Shine kahit paano,” said the league’s two-time MVP.
“Kahit isang championship lang,” he added.
Yap revealed his wish in the 2OT podcast show of PBA game anchors Carlo Pamintuan and Magoo Marjon.
Since his blockbuster trade with Paul Lee that saw him left the Purefoods franchise for Rain or Shine in 2017, the veteran wingman has yet to make it back in the finals.
The closest he and the Elasto Painters got of advancing together to the championship round came in last year’s Philippine Cup when they lost to ironically, Magnolia in the decisive Game 7 of the semis in which they led by as many as 17 points at one time.
