GlobalPort Chooses Youth and Speed over Veteran Experience

The Batang Pier opt to leave out Cardona et al



The GlobalPort Batang Pier has been one of the inexperienced teams in the league owing to the fact that they haven't reached the PBA Finals yet, but that doesn't stop them from being one of the explosive teams too. 

Why? This is owing to the fact that they have one of the best backcourt duos in Terrence Romeo and Stanley Pringle. However, that duo was almost broken due to the fact that Terrence Romeo's name has been the target of the nagging trade rumors in the past weeks- stating that apparently, Terrence Romeo initially wanted out of GlobalPort.

Fortunately for the fans of the Batang Pier, team official Mikee Romero and Terrence Romeo himself have denied the rumors with Romeo assuring the fans that yes, he is sticking with GlobalPort and is more than ready to help the team become successful starting this upcoming season which kicks off on December 17, 2017.

With Coach Pido Jarencio returning at the helm of the Batang Pier, Mikee Romero has said that his team is now on the course of assembling a much-younger core who can run on the break and score. Having said this, the GlobalPort management has opted not to renew the contracts of the following players:

  • Mac Cardona
  • Mike Cortez
  • Billy Mamaril
  • Paolo Hubalde
  • Mac Baracael
  • Rico Maierhofer

While the players above are already at the age of 30+ years old, the Batang Pier still have Ryan Arana who is 33, Sean Anthony at 31 and, Stanley Pringle at 30. 

While Cardona and Cortez, two former King Archers under Franz Pumaren during their respective playing years in the UAAP, are still relatively useful players, they are no longer the same in terms of their consistency. And age-wise, GlobalPort needs to get younger players if they are to compete against the likes of the San Miguel Beermen and the Barangay Ginebra Gin Kings. 


Conclusion

While Terrence Romeo and Stanley Pringle are relatively young, they do have the experience to lead a young team. With Coach Pido Jarencio back at it, they will be one of the teams to watch out for come the league's 43rd season. Why? They have the youth and speed plus the explosiveness of Terrence Romeo.
