Joshua Munzon ready to go to work with AMA, Pasig


It will be a busy 2019 for Joshua Munzon.

Besides playing for the Pasig Grindhouse Kings in Chooks-to-Go PIlipinas 3×3, the versatile 6-foot-4 swingman was the top overall pick in the 2019 PBA D-League Draft by the AMA Online Education Titans.

But Munzon relishes the challenge of playing in two different basketball disciplines. Moreover, the 24-year-old is glad to be playing at home.

“I feel like there’s a lot of opportunities for me in the Philippines right now, and I just want to take full advantage of it,” said Munzon, who previously played for the Saigon Heat and Westsports Malaysia Dragons in the ABL.

“I want to do my best, work as hard as I could possibly can, and be the best player I could possibly be in 2019.”

However, he’ll have his work cut out with AMA, as they try to bounce back from their 1-20 slump in the 2018 season. But Munzon knows that success with the Titans won’t come overnight. And he’s ready to put in the work as he tries to pull AMA out of the cellar.

“Like any other team, it will take some time, get some practice in, and we’ll go from there. I’m ready to come in and I’m optimistic in any situation. I’m ready to work,” shared Munzon, who will link up with 2018 top pick Owen Graham, mainstay Andre Paras, and Kib Montalbo in AMA.

“I’m looking at coming in and working hard. I feel like I can help in and contribute, work as hard as I can.”

In addition, Munzon set a lofty goal for himself this year, as he wants to win championships in both Chooks 3×3 and the D-League.

“I like our chances. We’ve been taking the time to get our chemistry. Give us some time and I think we can come together as a complete team and show what we can do,” Munzon added about Pasig where he gets to play with fellow prospects Taylor Statham and Troy Rike.

“I want to win it all. I don’t want to lose. I’m ready.”
