Vosotros not worried about familiarity with Gray heading to PBA 3×3


Jeremiah Gray has yet to join TNT 3×3 while he completes mandatory quarantine protocols, having just returned from the United States.

But the Fil-American cager may not have much of a problem meshing with the Tropang Giga, since there’s someone he is familiar with.

“Naging teammate ko si Jeremiah sa Thailand, so medyo familiar ako sa game niya,” said Almond Vosotros during the PBA 3×3 Media Day, Saturday.

The two became teammates in the Thailand Basketball League (TBL) in 2018. They shared backcourt duties together with renowned ball club PEA.

“Parehas kaming Asian import doon,” recalled the spitfire guard. “Parang mga almost two months kami nagsama, so medyo familiar sa’kin si Jeremiah.”

It’s been a while, yes, but that connection bodes well for a team that’s helping one another learn the halfcourt game more.

“Matagal na pero at least, meron akong idea kung papaano siya maglaro,” said Vosotros, who’s been with the ball club since 2019.

And he is confident, too, that the 6-foot-4 high-flyer could be a massive boost for TNT in the 3×3 inaugurals, which blasts off this Saturday.

Vosotros and Gray will join shooter Samboy De Leon and bruising big man Lervin Flores in the squad coached by Mau Belen.

“Alam naman natin si Jeremiah, sobrang athletic niya. So I think makakatulong siya sa team namin,” said the De La Salle product.

Now, Vosotros hopes that Gray will be able to join the Tropang Giga right away, especially with the cage wars fast approaching.

Well, it would help to have some sort of refresher between the two.

“Hopefully, maka-practice na siya para magka-basahan kami ng game.”
