SONNY Thoss had one basic motivation behind why he is resigning from Alaska as he enters his sixteenth year in the PBA – his body can never again take the beating from the rigors of being a ball player.
The 38-year-old Thoss affirmed on Tuesday to SPIN.ph that he will be resigning toward the finish of the forthcoming Philippine Cup, saying the ordinary crush has been negatively affecting his body.
Thoss said that he finds a sense of contentment with his choice to resign, saying that he feels that he is turning into an obligation to the main group he had played for since he was chosen fifth by and large in the 2004 draft.
Thoss said he is content with the choice to resign as he had made the most of his whole run with Alaska.
Thoss, a result of James Cook University, had a noteworthy resume with Alaska, winning three titles with the Aces including the 2013 Commissioner’s Cup where the 12-time All-Star won the finals MVP.
Alaska mentor Jeff Cariaso said Thoss was at that point intending to resign toward the finish of the 2019 season. Cariaso however said he is as yet attempting to persuade Thoss to complete the whole year.
In spite of Thoss’ announcements, Cariaso feels that the Alaska veteran is still particularly a resource for the group as he will be an incredible storage space fellow to the youthful players who are presently part of the Aces.
