Greene says TNT ready for big challenges ahead

I can’t win without my teammates. They’ve been sticking by my side the whole time and I just want to see them do well and win.”The job, however, gets harder as there’s a big possibility of Jayson Castro, Troy Rosario, and Roger Pogoy being called up for national team duty in the upcoming 2017 Seaba Championships.For Greene, though, he believes TNT has every material to remain competitive as the 2017 PBA Commissioner’s Cup eliminations comes to a close.“I’m prepared but it’s not just gonna be on me,” he said. “I have other guys who are going to step up. We still got two other guards in Kris (Rosales) and Matt (Ganuelas-Rosser) who are ready to step up and do a great job. I believe in them and the rest of the team. I think we’re gonna be fine.”TNT hits the court anew on May 5 against San Miguel.ADVERTISEMENT Presidency bid needs ‘deep reflection’ – Sara Duterte Filipinos turn Taal Volcano ash, plastic trash into bricks PLAY LIST 01:40Filipinos turn Taal Volcano ash, plastic trash into bricks01:32Taal Volcano watch: Island fissures steaming, lake water receding02:14Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard02:56NCRPO pledges to donate P3.5 million to victims of Taal eruption00:56Heavy rain brings some relief in Australia02:37Calm moments allow Taal folks some respite Palace: Crisis over ABC-CBN franchise unlikely Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.
