At last Kevin Alas Recognized as Corner Stone and Signed a Well Deserved Contract with NLEX

Kevin Alas Signed a 3-year deal to play for NLEX Road Warriors, Hopefully, this time he will be for keeps

Kevin Alas Signed a three year deal to play for NLEX Road Warriors

With the second pick of the 2014 PBA, the Rain or Shine Elasto Painters picked Kevin Louie Platon Alas from Colegio de San Juan de Letran.

Kevin Alas started his career in the PBA with a promise as he was poised to take over the point guard position of the ROS franchise that suddenly realized that they didn't want him after all.

Rain or Shine signed the rookie to a three year contract and was supposed to trade the then disgruntled Paul Lee but sudden turn of events changed the scenario as Paul Lee stayed and Kevin Alas was shipped out together with his three year contract to NLEX who at that point did not also want him and traded him to Talk n Text right off the bat.

Side note: Kevin Alas played for NLEX Road Warriors in the PBA D-League and led the team to several championships. 

He ended up playing for Talk n Text for awhile and averaging only 6 points in less than 20 minutes of play for the season. Kevin Alas became a journey man right away as he struggled to find a spot and his true identity as a once sought after player coming from college.

On August 25, 2015, Alas was on the move again to Mahindra, who quickly moved him out back to NLEX Road Warriors. Alas found himself bouncing around teams again and again. These teams probably didn't see the real value and potential of the young point guard until now.
Kevin Alas became one of the corner stones of NLEX Road Warriors, he is part of the now rejuvenated NLEX franchise who could be vying as one of the unexpected teams to win the coveted 2017 PBA Governors Cup Championship.  In 9 games this conference, Alas has averaged 15 points on 47%  FG shooting. This is a far cry from his performance in the initial years of his PBA career but Kevin continued to work on his craft and focused on his game.

Some players take trades personally, others get emotional and frustrated while others take it like a man and use it as fuel to be better. On the onset of Kevin Alas' career, he has experienced a lot of ups and downs, but the young 25-year old continued to strive and after years of hard work, NLEX Road Warriors rewarded the young talented player with another three-year contract and hopefully this time he will be retained.

Kevin Alas is in his prime and he is in the position to take the NLEX Road Warriors to a new level of success.
