IT’S not every day that the most beautiful woman in the universe is inside Ginebra’s dugout, which is why star guard Scottie Thompson was left in awe.
For the PBA Opening on Sunday at the Philippine Arena in Bocaue, Bulacan, it was no less than Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach who represented the Gin Kings.
Hours before the ceremony, Wurtzbach was already inside the Ginebra dugout.
“Nakakatuwa kasi si Queen P pa talaga ang muse namin,” said Thompson. “Meron din naman kaming prince, si Prince Caperal, so Pia the queen meets the prince. So motivated din kami kasi Miss Universe [ang] muse namin.
As Wurtzbach’s presence kept the Gin Kings starstruck, Thompson was made to choose between his celebrity crush Liza Soberano and the beauty queen.
One reporter asked, “Liza o Pia?”
Thompson, who needed a second or two to think, gave his answer.
“Liza ako, Liza,” he said. “Magkaisa lang naman [sila], si Liza din naman gumanap kay Pia sa MMK.”
