Terrence Romeo a Scoring Champ But Will Never be a PBA Champ?

The day was February 6, 2017. It was his last game for the PBA All-Filipino Conference. The day when he was supposed to carry his team to the semis but unfortunately did not happen. On the cover, it may look pretty for him, having the most points, playing the most minutes and getting some highlights reel on TV. Typical Romeo, he can score points all day and all night.

But when you look further on the stats, you will see the ugly truth that may have contributed to that loss and early exit of the Global Port from the Playoffs. Romeo may have been trying too much that night as he throws away 23 shots and only making 5 of them, that grotesque  21% shooting is just unacceptable for a crucial game. He also attempted 15 from the rainbow country and only making 2 of them. What's even the percentage of that? That is really atrocious. What happened?

Romeo still young at 24 years old, still has a long way to go and with individual stats he is generating. He will be breaking a lot more records and getting a lot of individual honors.

Romeo's achievements so far:

PBA Most Improved Player (2015)
2× PBA All-Star (2015, 2016)
PBA All-Star Game MVP (2015)
2× PBA All-Star Three-Point Shootout champion (2015, 2016)
PBA Mythical First Team (2016)
PBA Mythical Second Team (2015)
2× PBA scoring champion (2015, 2016)
UAAP MVP (2014)
2× UAAP Mythical Team (2013, 2014)
UAAP Rookie of the Year (2011)
Silver- 2015 FIBA Asia Championship
Silver - 2015 Williams Jones Cup

This All-Filipino Conference, he is averaging his seasons best so far at 28.7 points per game leading all the players and dwarfing the MVP JunMar Fajardo's points average who is only at second with 19.9 points per game.  Terrence Romeo is a scoring machine, but that is not entirely what he has accomplished this season. He also averages 6.18 assists per game (second in the league) and 3.91 rebounds. His field goal is also respectable at 45%. He could be up for Player of the Conference and probably Most Improved Player again this year. If that is even allowed. At the length of his career, we have seen him build on especially in scoring as year after year his averages increases.

He has competed in different basketball competitions and it's unfortunate that he has not earned any championship yet.  In the PBA, he has quickly risen up the ranks and with the support that the Global Port management is giving him, I have a feeling that the elusive championship that Romeo is chasing is just around the corner.

Global Port needs to surround Romeo of better supporting cast or else he might just do a Kevin Durant  and spring to the top team. (ehem, SMB?)

Do you think Terrence will win a championship in the PBA? 
Do you think he should move to a different team?

Watch Romeos Highlight!
