    BOBBY Ray Parks would rather move on from his contractual standoff in the offseason and turn his attention to his first PBA Philippine Cup with TNT.

    "I'm excited," Parks said. "It feels good to play with the local talent that we have. We have a lot of great talent in the PBA and I just want to showcase mine and have a better year than last year."

      "I wouldn't put that as an expectation, but we want to make it to the finals," he said. "I know we're gonna give it our best and we'll prepare as hard as we could for it. We definitely have the talent, we just have to put it all together and we just got to maximize each others' strength."
