Isaac happy for Chua

Chua made a name for himself after showing his hardworks getting payed off when he play in the D-League after getting minimal minutes when he was still with Ateneo.
And Blackwater Sports coach Leo Isaac,who is vital in Chua transformation from an unheralded back-up center at Ateneo into a star in the D-League, is happy for the new opportunity for Chua.
Chua's move to San Miguel Beer from GlobalPort in exchange for Taha gives the Beermen a uniquely talented big man who can bolster their frontline, Isaac said.
“Given the needed break, I am sure Justin can give San Miguel quality minutes,” said Isaac. 

“Matapang ang bata na 'yan. May shooting, may hustle. Saka mataas ang basketball IQ".
"Panalo ang San Miguel sa pagkuha nila dyan.”
Isaac said Chua's infectious energy and nice touch from the outside will bring an added dimension to San Miguel's frontline, which relies a lot on June Mar Fajardo and Doug Kramer.

Chua's championship experience is also an added boost to the Beermen who has also won titles with Chiang Kai Shek (high school), Ateneo (college) and Blackwater Sports (D-League) during his career.
“Malaking bagay yung puso na ipinapakita ni Justin kada laro, isa 'yun sa nakikita ko kung bakit may championship pedigree siya. I hope siya ang isang player na hinihintay ng San Miguel,” Isaac said.
“'Yun pa ang maganda sa bata na 'yan. May dalawang swerte. Laging nag cha-champion ang teams niya,” he added. “Saka magaling makisama. Very coachable pa.”
And when Isaac was asked how Chua fits in San Miguel.

“Magkakalugar si Justin dyan. Although, I still have to see him play there (San Miguel), pero tiwala ako magco-contribute at magco-contribute 'yan.
"He is an intelligent player, sabi ko nga.”

Chua is a good addition to the Beermen who are in dire need of a back-up to Fajardo.
