MANILA, Philippines – Defying expectations and edging dangerously close to winning a coveted semi final place, Terrafirma emerged as the PBA Philippine Cup’s surprise gift in a season full of unexpected flips and turns. There is a tangible sense of hope in the air as the dust settles on their incredible run, which finally ended in a heroic loss at the hands of the tough San Miguel Beermen. Juami Tiongson’s unwavering drive is the source of this confidence.

Tiongson, his eyes piercing, his voice full of determination, announced that he would “run it reimbursed” and build on the groundwork that their extraordinary adventures had created. His remarks reverberated through the organization’s hallways like a clarion cry, igniting a renewed feeling of purpose and aspiration.

An experienced analyst, expressing awe and respect for the team’s incredible journey, said, “Terrafirma surprised expectations by coming within one win of qualifying for the semifinals throughout the PBA Philippine Cup. Juami Tiongson wants the team to ‘run it reimbursed’ and build on that performance.”

Even yet, Tiongson maintains his composure in the face of their stunning success, his pragmatism well-balanced by his acute awareness of the hard realities that exist in the professional basketball league. He spoke in a calm tone, acknowledging that the management’s expertise and experience would be crucial in determining the club’s future course and that the road ahead may result in either more team growth or an early collapse of the intriguing roster.

The analyst went on, her words heavy with expectation and uncertainty, “Tiongson, who oversaw the Dyip’s incredible run that ended in a defeat to the powerful San Miguel Beermen at midnight, is also depending on management’s experience to determine what the future holds for the exciting roster, which has the potential to either improve or disintegrate.”

A constellation of emerging stars who are all proof of the team’s steadfast dedication to fostering and developing local talent can be found at the center of this story. In his second season, Gomez de Liaño became a dependable perimeter player, and each game he played, he showed more and more potential. Similarly, Go’s return to form as a dominant frontcourt player who spanned the floor offensively and reached his pre-injury level of play gave the team’s offensive arsenal a much-needed boost.

However, as the league feels the impact of their success, rumors of “equitable sway” have started to surface, igniting curiosity about whether Terrafirma will eventually deal these gifted players to bigger teams, as they have in the past—trade CJ Perez to San Miguel Beer in 2021, for example—in an attempt to cash in on their stellar Philippine Cup performances.

With conviction and a deep awareness of the fine line that must be drawn between ambition and pragmatism, Tiongson said, “I am confident that the management aspires to have an improved team and PBA, as it aligns with the fans’ desire for equitable rotation among the lineups.”

With individuals like Barangay Ginebra coach Tim Cone having previously expressed interest in signing him in 2021, Tiongson is no stranger to the whirling maelstrom of trade rumors. However, he has a clear path ahead of him, one that is driven by an unwavering commitment to excellence and a profound understanding of the responsibilities and realities that come with being a professional basketball player.

At the end of the day, Tiongson said, “Whether it’s at Terrafirma or somewhere else, I’ll just give it my all,” his words resounding with a strong resolve that has come to characterize his character and his approach to the game he loves.

A new morning full of opportunity and promise approaches as the sun sets on yet another amazing chapter in the team’s adventure. One thing is certain, regardless of whether they decide to stick with their current roster or take a daring turn: the spirit of Terrafirma, tempered by the fires of unexpected success and forged in the furnace of adversity, burns brighter than ever, serving as a beacon of inspiration in a league where legends are born and dreams come true.
