“Hindi ko ineexpect ito dahil talagang hard work lang talaga ginawa ko sa bawat laro,” said the native of Oleras, Northern Samar.

“Dine-dedicate ko ito sa kuya ko na talagang nagtulak sa akin na maglaro ng basketball at makipagsapalaran sa Maynila. Nagpapasalamat din ako sa mga teammates ko dahil hindi nila ako iniwan dito sa bubble. Talagang pamilya na turi nila sa akin. Kasama ko sila sa hirap at saya dito.”

Gimpayan, 25, gathered 416 points in the MVP race, built on 333 statistical points (1st), 18 from player votes (2nd), 25 from media votes (1st), and 40 votes (1st) from the VisMin office.
