IN case you are one of Robert Dozier's friends or followers on any of the social networking sites, don’t be surprised if you haven’t been hearing from him lately.
The Alaska Aces reinforcement is so focused on his quest for a first-ever career championship that he has stayed out of cyberspace since the PBA Commissioner's Cup playoffs began.
“Since our Air21 Express game in the playoffs, I haven’t gone online,” a smiling Dozier told Spin.ph.
“I just want to keep myself focused,” he added, stressing that news from social networking sites might prove a distraction to him.
The hard-working Dozier is so disconnected to the internet world that he hasn't been updated on the news, including stories about him and Alaska.
“I just want to keep it that way as of the moment, so when the finals is over - hopefully, when we have the top prize - then I can go back surfing (the net),” Dozier said.
His total focus is paying off so far, as Dozier has been a model of consistency for Alaska in the playoffs with his averages of 20.05 points, 17.30 rebounds, 2.75 blocks and 2.15 assists per game.
Dozier’s agent, Sheryl Reyes, told Spin.ph that the import also avoids going out and staying out late.
“I am so proud of him (Dozier). He is really exerting effort to improve himself. Dozier can also be spelled as d-i-s-c-i-p-l-i-n-e,” said the popular import agent.
Dozier holds a slight edge over Finals rival Vernon Macklin of Barangay Ginebra in the statistical race for the Bobby Parks Best Import award.
