Jio Jalalon is considered as the best collegiate point guard in the draft, but as his professional career starts to unfold the former Arellano University star will soon find himself battling for precious minutes.

Star drafted Jalalon with its pick in the special draft and the speedster joins the team’s loaded backcourt that has Paul Lee, Mark Barroca, Justin Melton, and RR Garcia.

The 24-year-old Jalalon, though, is not the person to look at the negatives and instead just wants to look at the benefits of joining a guard-laden team. 


“Kahit ang dami naming point guard, siguro kung ano lang ipapagawa sa akin ni coach gagawin ko talaga,” said Jalalon. “Siguro yung malaking experience na gusto kong matutunan lalo na kay Mark Barroca, Paul Lee, RR Garcia.

“Gusto kong makuha yung mga techniques nila.”

And just as any other draftee, Jalalon is just ecstatic he’ll get to put on a PBA jersey in few weeks time.

“Sobrang sarap sa pakiramdam kasi dati ito yung team na pinapanood ko talaga nung nandoon pa si Tim Cone, kaya sobrang saya ko na kinuha nila ako,” said Jalalon.
