BARANGAY Ginebra coach Tim Cone said he is in the process of writing a book now that he has a lot of time in his hands due to the enhanced community quarantine.
Finishing it, he says, is a totally different thing.
“I’ve taken some time here in the quarantine to write. I’ve got about 50,000, 60,000 words done,” said Cone on Saturday during a coaching webinar organized by Hoop Coaches International and Blackwater team consultant Ariel Vanguardia.
“Whether I’m going to finish it, I don’t know,” he added.
He did not reveal details of a publishing deal, but it should be an interesting piece from a coach with 22 PBA titles, the most by a coach in league history. His most recent title came just last year when Barangay Ginebra won the 2019 Governors’ Cup against Meralco.
Cone, also a two-time grand slam winner, in 1996 with Alaska and in 2013-2014 season with San Mig Coffee, said he always wanted to become a writer
“I always wanted to be a writer all my life. I’m having that opportunity. It’s given me something to do during quarantine and something to look forward to every day,” said Cone.
He hopes he can will himself to finish the book.
“I’m trying to get it done but there’s still many people who started books and not finished them and I’m one of them. So I’m going to have to fight my way through it. But at least, I’m 50,000, 60,000 words which is up to 100 pages or so or more,” said Cone.
