The title is just right. After letting go of premiere point guard, Mike Cortez, we’ll definitely see a new Aces this import-laced PBA Fiesta Cup. Alaska will have a new playmaker in Lewis Alfred, LA Tenorio. Forward Ken Bono and guard Larry Fonacier completes the deal between the Aces and Beverage Masters.
I believe Larry Fonacier is a gem to Coach Tim Cone’s eyes. Based on the last conference, Bono wasn’t able to show much although I can say that the talent and potential is there. His departure wouldn’t hurt the frontline of the Aces. Their two undersized bangers namely Ferriols and Hugnatan can get the job done for the coach Tim. Larry on the other hand has proven his worth in the pro league during his stint in Red Bull Barakos. He was drafted by the Barakos in the 2nd round. Fonacier is a cold-blooded shooter, one that Alaska badly needs especially for their triangle offense. Larry will definitely play a big role for Alaska offensively. I expect him to have a good playing time. It is even possible for him to play along side Alaska’s main man, Wille “Thriller” Miller. I’m sure Tim Cone is thirsty for a pure shooter after the days of Jojo “Jolas” Lastimosa and Roel Gomez. Cone bets on the Blue Eagle, Fonacier.
Changing the team’s starting playmaker definitely makes a big impact on any team. Adding a deadly wingman in Fonacier, makes the Aces a team to watch out in the 2008 PBA Fiesta Cup.
