Kia import Johnson goes back to drawing board after subpar debut
ANTIPOLO—Kia reinforcement Geron Johnson said he will reevaluate his mistakes after putting up a disappointing performance in their 118-97 loss to Blackwater in the PBA Governors’ Cup Friday.
Johnson, who played first game in the PBA, finished with 28 points on 12-of-26 shooting, only had four rebounds and turned the ball over nine times.
“It wasn’t the way I wanted to start, so I’m trying to get the film and I got to go back to the drawing board,” said Johnson at Ynares Sports Center here in Antipolo. “It’s just showing that I got to come more prepared for Philippine basketball.”
Compounding Johnson’s worries was the Picanto’s miserable 0-8 record, a statistic he only knew about when he talked to the reporters after the game.
Johnson replaced Markeith Cummings who played for Kia for the first seven games of the conference.
“It’s my first game so I’d definitely see what I have to do,” said Johnson. “I will come out harder next game.”
