McCullough keeps eye on PBA title as Jones wins Best Import


San Miguel’s Chris McCullough wants nothing but the championship for the Beermen and even claimed that he doesn’t care losing the Best Import award in the PBA Commissioner’s Cup.

McCullough said that as a replacement import, he knows getting the award is a long shot, while Terrence Jones has been with TNT Katropa since the start of the mid-season conference.

“I don’t care about the Best Import,” said the former NBA player. “He was here before I was here, first of all, so it don’t matter to me. I’m just here to win a championship. That’s it.”

McCullough replaced Charles Rhodes when the Beermen held a 2-5 win-loss record, 10th in the standings in the eliminations.

McCullough helped the Beermen stay in contention in the finals series after pulling off a 106-101 win over the KaTropa. McCullough had a big game for San Miguel, contributing 27 points and 22 rebounds for the Beermen in the victory.

The former NBA player acknowledged that there’s a lot of work still has to be done as the only thing San Miguel did was tie the series up.
