LA SALLE STANDOUT CARACUT REVEALS JASON BRICKMAN HAS BIG IMPACT ON HIS WAY TO PBA
After a month of formalizing the PBA draft application, the “Boss” of La Salle Andrei Caracut said that he will keep in mind what he learned from his former Alab Pilipinas teammate Jason Brickman as he goes on to the professional league.
“Malaking impact sa akin yung nakasama ko si Jason Brickman sa team kasi every training talagang nakikipag compete ako sa kanya,” he affirmed to The Prospects Pod.
Jason Brickman was already branded as someone who can be a game-changer in PBA with his body built and international experience in basketball.
“He’s gained a ton of experience through the years playing around the region and he has been very successful. He has all the tools necessary to be successful and he also works extremely hard,” Jimmy Alapag, former PBA player who serves as a head coach for the San Miguel Alab Pilipinas of the ASEAN Basketball League (ABL) told Spin.ph.
And Caracut being the team captain of La Salle also noticed how Brickman could be a great player, thus he could learn from.
“Nakikita ko siya kung paano siya maglaro at paano pumasa…kay Jason kasi, habang nakakalaro mo siya, natututo ka” he propounded.
For Caracut, Brickman is someone with great calibers for, after all, he was named as the first MVP for Westports Malaysia Dragons after bagging the championship and pinned a great performance with Alab Pilipinas with 8.9 points on 45-percent shooting, together with 4.1 rebounds and 1.1 steals.
“Sa ABL kasi yung ibang kalaban namin doon, iba mga former NBA players tsaka talagang mabibigat. Skilled sila at ang gagaling lumaro sa opensa, so defensively kailangan ready ka rin,” Caracut reminisce on Brickman’s stint.
Nonetheless, the 5-foot-8 guard will still do his best as he bats his way into the PBA.
“Siguro yung experience na yun yung pinaka-madadala ko sa PBA,” Caracut concluded.
