Jimmy Alapag says Talk 'N Text's ultimate goal is winning the championship


Gilas-Pilipinas playmaker Jimmy Alapag is already familiar in this situation before, racking up victories at the start of the conference.

But for Alapag winning six straight games to start the PBA PLDT Home TVolution Commissioner’s Cup doesn’t mean anything if Talk N' Text fails to reach their ultimate goal of winning the championship.



“To be honest, 6-0 doesn’t mean anything to us,” Alapag said in a frank-manner way ,following Talk ‘N Text’s 94-87 win over Ginebra in Sunday’s main game at the Big Dome.

“It’s great to get to a good start especially with the format of this conference that is so short. But we’re not where we want to be,” he said.

“Our goals are much higher than just 6-0. By no means are we comfortable.”


This only means that the Tropang Texters is not lowering their cudgels for the upcoming games.

Crediting Howell

But Alapag give the credit to import Richard Howell who is racking up double-double performance every game.

Howell's do-it-all approach to the game perfectly fits the system employed by coach Norman Black.

“A lot of it (6-0 start) has to do with our import. Rich has been great for us,” he said.

“I think the disappointment from losing last conference might have been a blessing in disguise because it gets us prepared, and the guys get healed up (from injuries) and get to better condition,” added the 36-year-old veteran Talk ‘N Text playmaker.

“I think those are making the big difference so far.”

Howell banged in 19 points against Ginebra but was more impressive in the rebounding department with 23 boards, including 10 on the offensive end that gave the Tropang Texters the edge.
In their next assignment, the Tropang Texters will stake their unblemished record against the champion of the last two conferences in San Mig Super Coffee Mixers who is also unbeaten, on March 31 at the Smart-Araneta Coliseum.

Expect an all-out-war from two powerhouse teams.
