APART from trying to wrap up its PBA Philippine Cup semifinal playoff against San Mig Coffee, Rain or Shine is also trying to solve a tiny problem involving a big man.

No, make that a huge man.

Painters team manager Boy Lapid bared to Spin.ph that they are now scouring Metro Manila for a huge bed big enough to make incoming  import Bruno Sundov - all 7-feet-3 of him - comfortable after a hard grind on the court.

Expected to be the tallest among the imports for the 2013 Commissioner’s Cup, the Croat will also be the tallest reinforcement the Raymund Yu and Terry Que-owned franchise will ever parade in their seven years in the pro league.

“Eto naghahanap pa rin ako ng 7-4 na kama. Ang hirap makakita,” said Lapid, who is in a race with time as Sundov is expected to arrive in two weeks' time.

Lapid has even sought the help of Rain or Shine coach Yeng Guiao, a vice governor in Pampanga which is home to the finest wood craftsmen in the country specializing in furnitures and - hold your breath - caskets.

 “Kinausap ko na si coach Yeng, magpapahanap daw siya,” Lapid said.
