PJ RAMOS downplayed the praises after a big performance for Alab Pilipinas against visiting Hong Kong Eastern.
The 7-foot-3 Puerto Rican had 31 points with 11 boards and seven dimes in Alab’s 87-75 victory, eclipsing the Lions’ 7-foot-5 Sam Deguara, who was limited to 14 and nine.
Deguara has been a problem for Alab since last season when he was with Mono Vampire, and the team was thrilled to see Ramos get the upper hand.
Ramos said he was just doing his job.
“That’s why the team brought me this year to handle the bigs. So now I’m here, I’m just trying to help the team,” Ramos said.
“I’m not worried on who I play. I play whoever I got to play, you know what I’m saying,” said former Washington Wizards player.
“Everybody knows what I do and what I don’t over the years. It’s doesn’t matter who you are, who you’re playing.”
Ramos said the team was quick to move on from its first loss of the season against the Westports Malaysia Dragons last Wednesday.
“You have to lose sometimes, it’s better to happen now than later. Right now, we lose, we won today and we’re back off again we’re not worried about it, we just focus on our next game.” Eugene Flores
