Zamar who got acquired by the Blackwater Elite after his impressive stint with the Thailand based basketball squad in the ASEAN Basketball League (ABL) seems to be getting ready to soak more time in the bench but will also be ready if SMB head coach Leo Austria calls his name.
“Sa akin, hindi issue ang playing time kasi I know na anytime na kailangan akong gamitin ni coach Leo (Austria), ready ako maglaro. Sa PBA, we are paid to play anytime kaya dapat anytime, ready ka,” Zamar said in his interview with spin.ph.
“Sa akin naman, expected ko naman ‘yun going to a loaded team and a very talented team,” said Zamar. “Mas naging talented pa dahil nakuha nila si Terrence.”
Coach Austria is very well known of his style where he utilizes few players in a game. That strategy is effective and produced multiple championship crowns for the franchise especially during the Philippine Cup, the conference where they’re most dominant.
Yet, with the success of Magnolia Hotshots in the recent Governors’ Cup and the roster revamp of other teams, SMB seems to be brewing a different taste in the upcoming PBA 44th season.
