BLACKWATER'S prized rookie was finally a show on Saturday.
Big man Maurice Shaw arrived in the country just in time to be with the Bossing's campaign in the PBA Philippine Cup inside the Clark Freeport bubble.
Shaw however, won't be able to join the Bossing when they depart for Pampanga on Tuesday as he has to observe a 14-day quarantine as mandatory protocol from those arriving overseas.
But the Bossing are more than glad seeing the 6-foot-9 Shaw in the flesh after iniitially having a difficult time booking a flight back to the country.
"It's good to be able to join us in the bubble," said Blackwater coach Nash Racela of Shaw, picked no. 2 overall by the Elite in last year's draft.
"Not really sure about his condition at the moment, but we are trusting that he did his part to be ready for the games."
Although now 35, Shaw's presence gives Blackwater the needed frontcourt help the team has been lacking since the departure of big man Poy Erram.
