RAIN or Shine is not only making changes among its locals.
After bidding goodbye to Jeff Chan to Phoenix for Mark Borboran and a future second-round pick, the Elasto Painters have also made an import change, replacing J.D. Weatherspoon for J’Nathan Bullock.
ROS coach Caloy Garcia confirmed the development on Monday afternoon.
The 30-year-old Bullock, listed at 6 feet 5 inches, is a veteran forward who last played in the Finnish league.
Bullock attended his first practice on Monday.
“I needed more of a leader of an import,” Garcia admitted. “Si JD was good, but then he wasn’t vocal enough. Parang when we lost games, I was looking for somebody from an import na ayaw magpatalo. Pero parang sa kanya, he was just taking it lightly.
“Ito naman si Bullock, first day of practice pa lang kanina, maganda agad ang pinakita, so the players are excited to play. He’s not that tall, but he’s strong,” he added, comparing him the dreadlock-haired import to former reinforcement AZ Reid. “Parang AZ Reid – the same movements, the same hair, everything.”
