Why is Jeron Teng the Perfect Pick for the Aces?

The former King Archer scored 15 points against Rain or Shine


The Alaska Aces were used to be among the elite teams in the PBA during the past few seasons. This is the same franchise which Tim Cone led to multiple championships when he was still at the helm of the team. However, injuries to key players plus personal issues surrounding Calvin Abueva have struck the Aces during the last season as they ended Governors' Cup near the bottom of the standings as they ended the closing conference with a 3-8 record. 

Alex Compton and the rest of the Alaska Aces may have missed the playoffs but we all know that Calvin Abueva and company are more than capable of achieving more than just a slot in the semifinals. All they need are two things: Consistency and Health.

When the Aces drafted Jeron Teng, a champion during his last season with the De La Salle Green Archers in the UAAP, there were a few basketball pundits who questioned this move by the Aces. Sure, Jeron Teng is a legitimate scorer as proven by his performances during his stint with the Archers but the Aces are already loaded with scorers and energetic players, to begin with. 

However, the Aces are also faced with painful realities: Calvin Abueva can't carry the team on his own. Jvee Casio isn't the same player as he was during his early years. Vic Manuel, the team's muscles, has fully recovered from his injury but given his age, he can try but he won't be the same kind of player that he was once. These realities may require a complete overhaul from top to bottom but given the situation, an overhaul can wait. For now. 


Conclusion

The good news is: Jeron Teng is still young at the age of 23 years-old. He has shown glimpses of what he can do for the Aces during the pre-season games and even scored 15 points to compliment Calvin Abueva's efforts- leading Alaska to a victory over the Rain or Shine Elasto Painters. If anything, Jeron Teng can definitely contribute more to Alaska given the opportunity. But then again, that's if he's consistent. And healthy.

Just what you can do or buy with the bonuses given to the players?
Last week, Ginebra captured their first back to back Governors Cup Championship. A few days ago,  they celebrated with the fans and today, Ginebra players are either buying a new car, a vacation house or enjoying their hard earned bonus money. 
But just how much money did the players actually get?

According to a good friend and a Ginebra insider, each players were given different amounts of bonuses depending on their salaries and performances during the finals. So, you can safely say that Justin Brownlee and LA Tenorio are the most fortunate. The rest of the players, however, seems very happy as well with what they got. The big boss of SMC is looking to make an impression to the players to keep them motivated or in Ginebra term "Ganado".

We were told that the equivalent amount could be 10x more their…
