Rookie guard Scottie Thompson gained a lot of praises starting from the PBA analysts, players, coaches up to the  PBA fans already and it's not a surprise how everyone admires how this guy gets a lot of attention these days especially in the current PBA finals and Ginebra campaign.

How does this guy play a big part in the Ginebra success? First thing that everyone noticed is, looking at the previous Ginebra play maker roster, it is the first time that Ginebra got a point guard that has the ability  or skills to crash the boards.


Like what Coach Tim Cone said in one of his post game interviews, the most winningest coach compared Thompson to Johnny Abarrientos. He said that this guy has the "Nose for the ball". Thompson has the ability to know where the ball will go, he knows where to position himself inside the paint to get the rebounds and he knows where his team mates are even without having direct vision on where his team mates are specifically positioned.

The former NCAA MVP played a vital part in the Ginebra's rotation in terms of assists and that's one of the factors why Ginebra has been executing the complex triangle offense perfectly. Listed as 5'11", he's one of the guards that every team has been looking after every game as he knows how to score, dish passes and even out rebound even the tallest player in the game.

Known as the triple double machine back in the NCAA days, this guy has proved himself to be one of the all around players in the league and definitely one of the reasons why Ginebra is in the finals this conference and like what Cone said, this guy is so incredibly unselfish that they needed to force him to shoot and score in a game which perfectly worked in their game against the San Miguel Beermen in game 5 of the semi finals series that they eventually won with an explosive performance of this Perpetual Help standout.
