Dogfight ang nakikita ni PBA Commissioner Chito Narvasa sa Commissioner’s Cup championship showdown ng San Miguel Beer at TNT KaTropa umpisa bukas sa Smart Araneta Coliseum.

Parehong astig, malaking papel ang gagampanan ng bench.

“We’ll take advantage of whatever opportunity is in front of us,” deklaras­yon ni KaTropa coach Nash Racela sa pre-finals press conference sa Sambokojin Restaurant sa Eastwood kahapon. “We’ll do our best.”

Para kay Leo Austria ng SMB, mas malalim pa ang bench ng TNT.

“They have a deeper bench and they are a perfect blend of youth and experience,” puna ni Austria, kasama sina June Mar Fajardo, Chris Ross, Alex Cabagnot, Arwind Santos, Marcio Lassiter at Charles Rhodes, board representative Robert Non at team mana­ger Gee Abanilla.

“They also have Jayson Castro, who is the best guard in Asia, what more in the PBA,” dagdag ng Beermen coach.

Kasama ni Racela sina team manager Virgil Villavicencio, Joshua Smith, standby import Mike Myers, ­assistant team manager Magnum Membrere, Kelly Williams, Mo Tautuaa, Castro, Roger Pogoy at Troy Rosario.
