NLEX guard Kevin Alas admitted that he was not ii his top shape when he came back last conference for the Road warriors but with longer preparation time in the off-season, the 6'2" slasher is eager to deliver for his team.
Alas bared his excitement to be finall back in the fold for the Road Warriors in the Philippine Cup, the same conference where he reinjured his knee.
"Excited na ako makabalik sa All-Filipino, hundred percent na uli kasi nung pagbalik ko nung third conference di pa hundred percent ready. Siguro masaya lang ako na makakapaglaro na uli ako ng dating laro ko, syempre it's hard for me to be watching my teammates battle it out with the other team tapos di ako nakakatulong," he said
Alas, who just recovered from his second ACL injury and returned for the Road Warriors last conference, said he felt helpless seeing his team bow out of contention at the hands of the then-eight seeded Northport Batang Pier despite being the top seed and holding on to a twice-to-beat advantage in the Quarterfinals.
Coming into the All-Filipino Cup, Alas and the Road Warriors were eager to get over and bounce back from that loss.
"One of our biggest motivation yung nangyari sa amin nung third conference against Northport kasi number one then twice to beat pa kayo then di kayo nanalo parang masakit para sa amin yun," Alas recalled.
"Personally for me masakit din kasi di ako makatulong kasi I'm not hundred percent, I'm not ready siguro now I can say na ready na ako kasi ang haba na rin ng pinahinga ko," he added.
Alas felt blessed to have the longer preparation time this time around which allowed him to get on his top shape and further improve his game.
"I'm happy and blessed, mahaba yung preparation namin para dito sa All-Filipino eh. I mean I have enough time to improve to correct what ever I need to para pagdating sa All-Filipino ready na ako."
