Greg Slaughter is the Only One who Can Stop the Kraken- Tim Cone

June Mar Fajardo might be a 4-time MVP but GregZilla got the numbers in his favor.

During the course of the past 4 seasons, June Mar Fajardo has collected 4 MVP awards on top of 5 championships for the San Miguel Beermen which included the first two of the 42nd season. In fact, the Beermen had a chance to achieve a rare Grand Slam if not to the Barangay Ginebra Gin Kings who denied the Beermen of that chance upon beating them convincingly during the quarterfinals of last season's Governors' Cup.

On the other hand, Fajardo's fellow Cebuano and long-time rival, Greg Slaughter has recently recovered from the injury which made him miss a ton of the previous two seasons and played a vital role during Ginebra's championship run in the Governors' Cup which ended with Ginebra hoisting another Governors' Cup trophy after a full 7-game slugfest against the Meralco Bolts. To cap his successful stint during the Governors' Cup, he earned the Best Player of the Conference award, an award that was backed by great performance throughout the closing conference of the league's 42nd season.

On Christmas Day, Greg Slaughter exploded for 24 points and 12 rebounds, leading Ginebra to a win over the fading Magnolia Hotshots. Fajardo, on the other hand, had 26 points and 9 rebounds on December 27 against the Bolts.

While many coaches think that Fajardo is a virtually unstoppable, playing like an import, one coach thinks otherwise. That coach is none other than Tim Cone who said that Greg Slaughter may be the only player who can match-up with his Cebuano rival due to his height plus his ability to engage in a one-on-one battle against SMB's star center. And Tim Cone isn't wrong either. Strength-wise and stat-wise, only Slaughter can match up the numbers that Fajardo is putting up nowadays.


Conclusion

While Fajardo and Slaughter have yet to face each other this season, we can expect that there'll be a war come the game between the two giants. Who will come out victorious?

Prediction: Greg Slaughter. 

But of course, Fajardo belongs to the league's best all-local starting line-up so that's something that Tim Cone will have to work around with.
