Despite impressive line, Joshua Munzon says he can do more for AMA

Joshua Munzon finally made his much-awaited debut in the 2019 PBA D-League on Tuesday, and he didn’t disappoint.

The 6-foot-4 swingman, who was the first overall pick in the 2019 PBA D-League Draft, tallied a double-double of 12 points and 10 rebounds and added three assists. He helped the AMA Online Education Titans clobber newcomers McDavid, 80-65.

But Munzon himself was far from satisfied with the way he performed in his first foray in Philippine ball.

“I feel like I didn’t play good today at all. I missed a lot of free throws, missed a lot of shots,” confessed Munzon, who shot just 5-of-13 from the field and went 2-for-6 from the charity stripe.

“So definitely, I got some more work to do.”

Still, the 24-year-old tipped his hat to his teammates such as Franky Johnson and former NU Bulldog Troy Rike, since they were at the forefront of the Titans’ waylaying of the neophyte club.

Johnson collected 24 points on 8-of-14 shooting alongside seven rebounds. Meanwhile, the 6-foot-7 Rike – who also made his D-League debut – contributed 15 markers and eight rebounds.

“I got to a real slow start out there, but my teammates were able to pick me up. Franky made shots, Troy was working on the boards. It’s definitely a team effort out there,” Munzon lauded.

Tuesday’s win was a good start to AMA’s campaign. But the former ASEAN Basketball League Heritage Import feels like the Titans can still play better than they did versus McDavid.

“Give us more time, maybe we’ll get together a bit more and we’ll be better the next game.”
