Ryan Reyes finally broke sweat for the Talk ‘N Text Tropang Texters earlier this week, and although he has not yet found the rhythm he is known for, the Tropang Texters guard just wants to help in any way possible.
“It feels great. I am just trying to get my timing and rhythm back. I’ve been out for four months and I would say I am not yet at a hundred percent. I do what I do. Coach puts me in limited minutes,” Reyes said after Talk ‘N Text beat Kia, 94-85.
“There is no pain but I just don’t have the strength so I am taking it day by day. Slowly but surely we will get there.”
Reyes went scorless in 7 minutes against the Stat Hotshots, and chipped in only a point against the Carnival in almost 16 minutes of action.
Known for his reputation as a stopper and three-point threat, Reyes claims he missed everything about playing for Talk ‘N Text.
“Just being here from the start, it could have been different maybe. Just being on the court and do what I do like hustle and give energy,” he shared.
Reyes also gave credit to the Tropang Texters which stepped up while he was sidelined.
“Those guys did a great job. Willie (Miller) is a legend and Kevin (Alas) is an up and coming star. They always give limited minutes. Glad to have those guys on my side and I know they step up.”
The path towards regaining top form wouldn’t come easy, but Reyes is determined to just returning to that desired form.
“For me, I just want to do what I have been doing throughout my entire career, giving a hundred percent.”
