FROM his seat in the transmission stall inside the TV5 building, Yeng Guiao had a decent perspective on how huge an effect Poy Erram made in his first season with TNT.
Seeing Erram satisfying hopes at TNT is clashing for Guiao, who prevailing with regards to procuring the 6-8 focus in an exchange with Blackwater just to see him head to NLEX’s sister group in an arrangement done by top administration.
Guiao made his disappointment known the second information on the exchange spilled, yet before long acknowledged it like a decent warrior. Right up ’til today, he puts forth no attempt to shroud his emotions over an exchange that left a vast opening NLEX’s forefront.
Seeing Erram become the column that TNT has not had for quite a while, Guiao really wanted to consider how NLEX would’ve fared with an adaptable enormous man to supplement the destructive backcourt of Kiefer Ravena, Kevin Alas, and Jericho Cruz,
With Erram, TNT got the extent that Game Five of the PBA Finals before losing to Barangay Ginebra; without Erram, NLEX missed the mark concerning making the end of the season games with a 5-6 (win-misfortune) record, completing at ninth spot by and large.
Frustrating as the outcomes were, there might be a silver covering for NLEX after all these.
NLEX got two first-round picks – including the 2021 draft rights by course Blackwater – in the exchange for Erram. That determination remains at No. 3 by and large in the 2021 tenderfoot draft after the Elite completed in ninth spot in the Clark bubble only in front of NorthPort and Terrafirma.
Along with its own draft pick subsequent to completing in eighth spot in the Philippine Cup ends, NLEX stands to pick No. 3 and 4 in the first round.
Nothing is sure about the following PBA Rookie Draft now aside from that it will probably be held in March, yet it has raised trust in Guiao that NLEX may at long last procure the products of that Erram exchange, but a lot later.
