NLEX import Kwame Alexander's reputation as a mean dunker preceded him in his stint in the PBA Governors Cup.
But the 6-foot-4 import is out to prove he’s more than a ‘human highlight.’
“That (dunks) will come. I gotta show other parts of my game so I won’t be labeled just as a dunker though that’s one of my specialties,” Alexander told Spin.ph, shortly after the Road Warriors lost to Barako Bull Energy, 101-96, in the two team’s debut on Wednesday.
The former Cal State San Bernardino standout swears he’s capable of bringing in the energy, toughness, rebounding plus a lot of excitement for the young NLEX franchise.
“Hopefully, I can do that throughout the conference, that energy, toughness, rebounds, mental toughness and excitement,” added Alexander, best remembered for winning the Sprite Slam Dunk Showdown Los Angeles last year.
The 23-year-old Alexander also hopes to blend in the soonest for NLEX, considering that the Road Warriors will be playing defending champion Purefoods Star three days from now.
“That (game against Purefoods) will be tough. Regardless, I feel like I can adjust pretty quickly,” said Alexander, who had 16 points and 10 rebounds against Barako just two days after arriving as a late replacement for Rob Jones.
