“Si Guinto kasi, kalaban ko yan sa D-League. Alam kong masipag talaga yang bata na yan. Grabe siya maglaro. He does not complain and just plays the game,” Adeogun shared.

“I remember the last time we played, talo namin sila pero grabe, na-outwork niya ako. I remember that and learned from that. So I came out physical. I gave him respect so I came out to play.”
