The Blackwater Elite‘s rookies were seen carrying a “Dora the Explorer” knapsack bags during the 44th PBA Opening Ceremony last Sunday.


According to the team’s assistant coach Patrick Aquino, those are part of their so-called “Rookie duties”.

“Actually, Mike (Cortez) told me it’s rookie duties for the whole year and sa lahat ng functions or activities ng Blackwater,” added Aquino.

Abu Tratter, Paul Desiderio, Matt Salem and Diego Dario were all seen having the knapsack of the famous american TV cartoon character who is fluent in speaking Spanish language.

The Elite will make its 2019 PBA Philippine Cup debut on January 16 (Wednesday) versus the NorthPort Batang Pier. Then on January 19 (Saturday) against the Meralco Bolts.


After the Elite’s successful campaign last season especially in the 2018 PBA Governors’ Cup, the team decided to revamp their lineup where they traded JP Erram, Paul Zamar and Nards Pinto.
