Gomez De Liaño impresses Odom
It took just one practice session for Juan Gomez de Liaño to create quite an impression on former Los Angeles Lakers standout Lamar Odom.
“This kid can play and is good,” said Odom of the UP star, who showcased his shooting and playmaking skills in Mighty Sports’ first practice session.
The team, which will also parade former Barangay Ginebra import Justin Brownlee and Chinese league veteran Randolph Morris, is gearing up for the Dubai International Basketball Championship set Feb. 1 to 9.
“First practice was OK; I like that guys were excited, lots of laughs. They were practicing well,” said coach Charles Tiu, the younger brother of retired Rain or Shine star Chris Tiu. “Juan looked very good. I was also impressed with his decision-making. His overall game, including his shooting, was great.”
