MPBL is giving Aaron Black a great experience on his road to the pros, says dad Norman

Meralco Bolts head coach Norman Black was in attendance last Friday at the Pasig Sports Complex to  watch his son Aaron and the Quezon City Capitals-Wemsap play in the ongoing Maharlika Pilipinas Basketball League (MPBL) Lakan Cup.

Despite seeing the team bow over the Davao Occidental Tigers, the pro league tactician believes his son will play better games in the league.

"I think it's giving him a lot of good experience particularly here in the MPBL because there are a lot of veterans here who played very physical basketball, very similar to the PBA," one of the Philippine Basketball Association (PBA) greatest imports said.

The Ateneo Blue Eagles standout opted not to play his final year with the Katipunan-based squad and is currently playing in two leagues, MPBL and the PBA D-League.

"Well, he is playing in two leagues right now. Obviously, he's playing here in the MPBL and also playing to the D-League."

"Playing in the D-League is necessary for him to be able to go the draft so it's a little tiring right now he had a game last night in the other league, then he had a game here tonight."

But despite suiting in different leagues and getting the necessary experiences, Norman commended his son for being a good listener to the advice of people around him.

"Aaron has always been coachable, he's always been a good listener. To think he learn at a very young age, he still listens to the people who know a little bit more than him about basketball then he's only gonna become a greater player."

"I'm a basketball coach I always try to complete his game and help him as much as I can."
