Paul Lee can’t wait to play alongside Jiovani Jalalon, who was acquired by Star in the 2016 PBA Draft.

“Sobrang excited ako kasi alam natin kung paano maglaro si Jio so magandang addition siya para sa amin,” he said.


The Hotshots’ newest acquisitions are expected to take the league by storm as they try to bring the franchise back into title contention with new head coach Chito Victolero at the helm.

With Lee, the Hotshots have one of the best players in the league today while Jalalon is primed to take his explosiveness from his days in the NCAA to the pros.

The two will team up with Star’s interesting set of guards in Mark Barroca, Peter June Simon, and RR Garcia.

“Maganda rin yun para sa amin kasi kung ano yung gusto hanapin ni coach Chito, kayang punuan ng mga guards sa Star. Feeling ko kung ano yung gusto niya, makukuha naman niya sa amin,” he said.

And that’s the main reason why Lee is pumped up to play for Star this coming season.

“Bago lahat para sa akin eh. Excited ako para kay Jio at para sa buong team. Hindi na ako makapaghintay para sa darating na season,” the Tondo pride said.
