      "Syempre scouted namin yan lahat kahit wala sila dito. Nakita namin yung statistics nila sa US at kung saan sila naglaro. Ang di lang natin makita yung ugali, kung paano siya makipaglaro. Doon tayo cha-chamba," he said. "Stats-wise, nandoon lahat yung kailangan ng team. Yung ugali pa rin na marunong makisama, iba yung kinalakihan nila, yun ang hinahanap natin."
