‘I STILL HAVE MY BEST BASKETBALL AHEAD OF ME’ SAYS SLAUGHTER ON THE WINDUP OF HIS GINEBRA CAREER
Greg Slaughter’s journey with San Miguel has ended but the 32-year-old big man is still optimistic about his basketball career with his new home, NorthPort Batang Pier.
Slaughter was traded for Christian Standhardinger with the official approval of the PBA yesterday that marked his 6-year long stint with the Kings.
“It has been a tremendous 6 years with Barangay Ginebra. Although I am saddened to know that my journey with them has officially come to an end, from the first pick in the draft to all star and multiple championships, I will always look back fondly at the time I spent there,” wrote Slaughter on his Instagram account.
In the said Instagram post Slaughter can be seen wearing his old Ginebra jersey from the days when he was first drafted overall by the Gin Kings in 2013.
For all those years that he has been the man of the team, Ginebra showcased why he is named as “Gregzilla” for he has been part of the mythical six, won a total of four championships with Ginebra, and has earned a BPC honors.
With his skills and competence, Slaughter will surely be a great weapon for the Batang Pier who won just one game out of 11 matches during the 2020 Philippine Cup.
“I am truly excited for this new adventure and for the next chapter in my story to begin. I still have my best basketball ahead of me.”
“I have so much left to give the game and just as blessed as ever to play the game I love in front of all the fans who have been with me through it all, no matter what jersey I wear,” he continued.
And along with his long post, he thanked the Ginebra team from the coaches to his teammates and foremost of all is his undying supporters.
“Sa lahat ng patuloy at walang sawang sumusoporta sa akin, taos puso akong nagpapasalamat. Pinapangako ko sa inyo na hindi ko kayo bibiguin,” the post concluded,
