Yeo relishing role as mentor to GlobalPort’s Romeo, Pringle
Joseph Yeo has played different roles in 10 seasons in the PBA.
Yeo has experienced being a star, a role player, and now as a veteran leader off the bench with GlobalPort.
The explosive guard has become the veteran voice for the Batang Pier’s young stars in Terrence Romeo and Stanley Pringle, and apart from being an integral part of the team, the 32-year-old Yeo also doesn’t mind being a mentor.
“Whatever example I can give, because right now the PBA games are almost every other day, so I teach them how to manage their legs, stuff like that,” Yeo said who is in his ninth year.
Yeo, though, said he doesn’t need to do that much in terms of teaching the two guards how to be effective on the floor as the duo, dubbed as PBA’s best backcourt, can do it on their own.
“In-game, they’re already good at it. I’m just here to guide them because this team, it’s Terrence and Stanley’s.”
Yeo hopes to help GlobalPort in its bid to go far in the playoffs starting with a quarterfinals match against Barako Bull on Friday.
