Kabaranggay pala! Almazan says facing Ginebra in PBA Finals a ‘dream come true’


Raymund Almazan is safe to say, a self-confessed Ginebra fan.

The Meralco big man admitted he’s been yearning to meet the PBA’s most popular ballclub in the final dance. This dream will come to fruition when the Bolts faced Ginebra in the Governors Cup finals or the third time on Tuesday.

“Dream come true sa akin na makalaban ang Ginebra sa finals talaga,” said the 30-year-old center.

Almazan has been to the finals four times in his career while still with Rain or Shine. However, he has not had the chance to face Ginebra in the championship round.

The Orion, Bataan native was not yet with Meralco when the Bolts lost to the Kings during the 2016 and 2017 Governors Cup finals. But the 6-foot-8 center hopes the Bolts will get their payback this time.

“Sana maging iba naman yung result this time,” said Almazan.
