PBA legend Jimmy Alapag simply landed his first head teaching gig as the ASEAN Basketball League’s Alab Pilipinas tapped “The Mighty Mouse” to steer the club subsequent season.
Alapag will likely be taking on the Ray Parks-led squad which bowed out of the semifinals in its debut stint this yr.
“[I’m very excited] for the upcoming season,” Alapag mentioned.
“For this to be my first head coaching experience, I’m looking forward to the challenge. I know [that it will be very difficult] with the preparations for the upcoming season. Again, I’m used to working hard. That’s the norm for me. I’m just looking forward to the upcoming season and bringing the championship to Alab Pilipinas.”
A former PBA MVP and national crew participant, Alapag at present serves an assistant coach for Gilas Pilipinas and the Meralco Bolts. He introduced his retirement final yr after profitable six titles with TNT and enjoying 13 seasons within the PBA.
