ROOKIE DIARY: CARLO LASTIMOSA

10:37 AM February 21, 2014

In my first conference in the PBA…
Masaya naman ako. Ang daming experience, especially sa physicality ng game and sa mga adjustments sa play. All in all, ok naman kasi nabigyan ako ng chance ni coach na ipakita na kaya kong maglaro sa PBA.

What I proved to myself…
Siguro na-prove ko na I can play in the pros. Kahit na di ako masyadong consistent, pero nakita naman siguro ng mga coaches at ng management na kaya kong makipag-compete.

My most memorable moment as a pro…
First game talaga. Yung first shot ko kasi unang tira ko pa lang, na-shoot na agad. Di ko na maalala yung nagbabantay sa akin pero sa corner ko tinira yun eh, tapos pumasok. Ang kalaban namin dun is Air21 at naalala ko pa nga na nakalmot ako ni Wynne (Arboleda) sa leeg after ng laro. Dun talaga nag-start lahat eh.

What I learned is…
I have to be always ready. Kasi maraming veterans sa team namin, kaya dapat pag pinasok ka, ready ka lang sa kung anong mangyayari. Kung ano pinapagawa sa yo, dapat gawin mo. The veterans helped me a lot also. Tinulungan nila ako ng sobra at gina-guide nila ako.

What I need to do in the next conference is…
To be consistent, mostly on my defense. Kasi dun ako nagkakamali minsan. Sinasabi naman nila coach na no one’s perfect. Pero I just to have to keep on trying hard and puso lang pag nasa loob na ng court. (RL)
