    REY Guevarra has gained another chance to prove that there’s more to him than his dunks and good looks as he cracked the roster of Phoenix for the PBA Philippine Cup.

    Trying out since failing to get a renewal from Kia, the three-time Slam Dunk champion has been signed to a one-conference contract by the Fuel Masters - his seventh team entering his eighth year in the league.

      “Syempre kailangan ko rin suklian yung chance na binigay nila sa akin,” Guevarra said. "Sobrang thankful ako na binigay nila ako ng kumbaga another life sa career.”
