Frankie Lim was no longer on the sidelines for the Perpetual Help Altas on Tuesday, but Ben Adamos made sure to play his heart out for him.
“Tatay-tatayan ko kasi yun, kasi siya yung nag-recruit sa akin,” expressed Adamos, who transferred from San Beda to Perpetual two years ago.
Last weekend, the Perpetual brass asked Lim to go “on leave”. They have now tasked Myk Saguiguit to take his place, promoting him from the Junior Altas to the seniors’ squad. Adamos and his teammates – the majority of whom Lim recruited – talked to him, seeking advice.
“Parang inadvice kami ni Coach Myk na talagang kailangna namin mag-next move na. Wala na talaga eh,” continued Adamos.
“Hanggang ngayon nga, hindi ko alam na magco-coach ako ngayon eh. I have many sleepless nights nung mula ng nalaman ko na ganun ang nangyari,” shared Saguiguit.
“Hindi ko alam na magco-coach ako ngayon.”
To show his loyalty to Perpetual, Adamos did not let his game drop against the EAC Generals, finishing with 11 points, 13 rebounds, and two blocks. And they were able to win their first game in the short-lived Lim era, 88-87.
All game long, they had Lim in mind, writing “Lim” or “CFL” on their shoes and tapes.
“Itong next game namin, kailangan buhos na talaga kasi si Coach Myk, kailangan namin suportahan, lalo na yung school,” Adamos said.
Though struggling to move on from the stunning turn of events, the Altas will continue to play for their mentor and for their school.
“Yung CFL nasa puso ko,” said Saguiguit.
