Jeron Teng: A Gem for the Aces



Alex Compton has nothing but praises for his prized rookie.

The name Jeron Teng isn't new in basketball. The last name Teng isn't either. Before Jeron and his older brother, Jeric came into the PBA, there was another Teng in the PBA whose career lasted for 14 years. So it's no surprise that Jeron Teng is becoming one of the league's popular players even though he is still a rookie.

And he's not just an ordinary rookie. Not even close. You see, his own coach with the Alaska Aces, Alex Compton considers Jeron Teng as one of the few bright spots in the new season which saw the Aces failing to 0-2 to open the Philippine Cup.

As Alex Compton said it, Jeron Teng serves as the gem for the struggling Aces. After dropping 16 points on his first game against the Magnolia Hotshots, Jeron Teng exploded for 28 points against the Talk N Text KaTropa when he went 10 for 18 in the field and also grabbed 10 rebounds. He entered 2018 with 22 points and 6 rebounds per game averages- both are team-highs.

While he is definitely one of the promising young stars who will dominate the PBA in the future, you can say nothing negative about Jeron Teng's work ethic and Alex Compton has been both a witness and a fan of it. According to the American coach, Teng is the team's gym rat who would stay late in the gym, working on his game despite being told to go home. 

Another key feature of Jeron Teng that Alex Compton liked to point out is that Teng is humble and is always willing to learn unlike other rookies in the past who think of themselves as the bet there were just because they had a stellar collegiate career. 


Conclusion

Don't be fooled by the Aces' struggles and their 0-2 record. And don't forget that the Aces still have Calvin Abueva and JVee Casio on board. Like it or not, it's only a matter of time until they become a formidable team with Jeron Teng. After all, it has been expected that Jeron Teng will slug it out against Kiefer Ravena in the race for the Rookie of the Year. 

And who knows? Teng might be the missing piece for the Aces to make a return to their winning ways.

Will Lonzo Ball Ever Develop His Offensive Game?

In the Lakers' game against the Miami Heat, there were two plays that caught my attention. One was that outlet pass by LeBron James to an open Lonzo Ball who was open for a layup.
