Besides the opportunity to showcase his wares in Asia’s first pay-for-play league, PBA Regular Draft top overall pick Roosevelt Adams could not help but be in awe with the opportunity in front of him.
He gets a chance to play with CJ Perez.
The product of Idaho admitted that he’s been keeping an eye on Perez, watching some of his games since last conference.
And Adams cannot wait to run the floor with the 2019 SEA Games gold medalist.
“I think we’re gonna have a great relationship.
“He’s a great player and I’ve been watching some of his games from last season. Very explosive, young, so we’re gonna have a great relationship on and off the court,” said the 25-year-old Adams.
Well aware that he’s joining a team that hasn’t had any playoff appearance since it entered the league in 2014, the PBA Draft Combine Most Valuable Player believes that his winning attitude, above everything else, can help the team in a plethora of ways.
Moreover, the 6-foot-5 Adams — who won the 2019 William Jones Cup championship with Mighty Sports — fits the billing of a 3-and-D guy. He’ll also definitely bring plenty of energy for the Dyip both on and off the hardcourt.
“Experience. I’ve been part of a lot of winning teams, I think I can bring my winning attitude to this team ,and a lot of energy I can bring to the team also, so we’ll see how it goes.”
Though there might be some pressure creeping in on his shoulders, Adams vows to turn every ounce of it into motivation.
“I’ll say motivation. I’m very nervous about it, obviously, but I’ll just turn all that to motivation and positivity and uhm… Like I said, I’m just excited for the season to start already.”
