It has been a year of ‘firsts’ for Terrence Romeo.
Following a trade from the TNT Katropa, Romeo has reached his first Finals appearance this 2019 PBA Philippine Cup with four-time champions San Miguel Beermen.
Romeo also heads into his career-first Game Seven, with his possible first championship on the line.
“Excited na ako maglaro sa Game Seven, first finals ko then umabot ng Game Seven,” said Romeo, the former three-time scoring champion.
However, Romeo doesn’t want to let the excitement get to him, or he might crumble under the expectations and become a liability instead of an asset in their bid for an unprecedented fifth straight All Filipino conference crown.
“Excited. Pero siyempre ‘di naman pwedeng sobrang excited to the point na ‘di na ako makatulog or what,” the three-time scoring champion said.
“Nararamadaman namin (yung pressure sa history). Actually ‘di ko alam kung pa’no namin mapapaghahandaan, pero ‘pag nandun na kami sa point na wake-up call na, nagigising kami,” he continued.
“Napakagandang challenge para sa amin.”
Thankfully for Romeo, his motivation is at an all-time high. He’s determined to overcome his nervousness and excitement, especially with his first career-championship at stake.
“Sobrang motivated kasi para sa family ko ito. Hindi ko lang laban ito, laban ng San Miguel ito.”
Now, only Romeo can decide his fate – whether he’ll be a champion at last, or fall short of kissing an elusive ring.
