So far in the 2019 PBA Philippine Cup, Ahanmisi has not disappointed, helping drive the Elasto Painters to a strong 4-1 start. “This is one of the most pristine conferences obviously, the all-Filipino so you want to make a statement that we are one of the better all-Filipino teams and we just want to stay aggressive,” Ahanmisi said. “We just want to keep the aggressive activity going,” he added. With Tiu enjoying his retirement from basketball, it’s up to Ahanmisi to run the Rain or Shine system to perfection.

I think I've really learned a lot from here,” he added.   — Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»
