MANILA, Philippines – The focus is squarely on Scottie Thompson, the MVP of Barangay Ginebra, as the PBA season draws near. Thompson is ready to carry the momentum from an exciting summer in which he represented the Philippines in the FIBA World Cup and the Asian Games, which resulted in the nation winning its first basketball gold medal since 1962. The PBA season begins next month.

Both supporters and analysts have great hopes for Thompson and believe that he will maintain his impressive form from the summer. There is little doubt that the MVP will bring his winning attitude and abilities to the court when he joins his local team, Barangay Ginebra.

Ginebra’s imposing big man, Christian Standhardinger, voiced his belief in Thompson’s potential. Standhardinger said, “Scottie always lives up to the very high standards I have for him.” “He has proven throughout his career that he is a total winner. Scottie is the kind of player who influences results, and those players are the most enjoyable to play with.”

Thompson is a tremendous asset to his team because of his ability to have a wide range of effects on the game. He is renowned for his versatility, serving as a rebounder, passer, and scorer in addition to his scoring prowess. Thompson raises the bar for himself and his teammates with his exciting style of play and contagious work ethic.

It’s obvious that Thompson’s presence on the floor improves the performance of the entire team. Standhardinger continued, “It’s critical that we maintain a high bar for Scottie, but the next conference will undoubtedly see him deliver without any additional pressure from me.”

The buzz around Thompson’s performance in the forthcoming PBA season has been further heightened by his accomplishments on the global scene. Even though he averaged 1.8 points, 2.2 assists, and two rebounds per game during the FIBA World Cup, Thompson’s best performance came at the Asian Games earlier this summer.

He proved how adaptable he is and how valuable he is to the Philippine national team during his outstanding performance at the Asian Games. The historic gold medal won by the Philippines as a result of Thompson’s services is a crucial turning point in the history of basketball in the Philippines. His perseverance and capacity to compete on a global platform augur well for his upcoming PBA appearances.

The Commissioner’s Cup match between Ginebra and Converge at the Araneta Coliseum on November 17 is a prelude to the PBA season. Scottie Thompson is expected to be among the top candidates for MVP, and expectations are high for him. He is up against stiff opposition from people like San Miguel’s June Mar Fajardo and Christian Standhardinger, though. Whatever the outcome, there’s no denying that Thompson will be a force to be reckoned with in the 2018 PBA season because of his love for the game, winning mindset, and track record of performing under pressure. Both teammates and fans are excited about what Thompson is sure to bring to the game in terms of energy and entertaining performances.
