BRUNEI BARRACUDAS SEASON 2 TEAM LAUNCH

Share

Covered the official Team Launching of the Brunei Barracudas on 26th September 2010, two days prior to leaving for my ASEAN 100 Leadership Forum assignment in Kuala Lumpur. Meeting the new and original team members of the team brought back memories from the launch of the ASEAN Basketball League in Makati, Philippines. The journey from Brunei to Kuala Lumpur to Philippines and most of all, being a part of a new beginning was unforgettably awesome.

“I found that the local players are progressing really quickly as they are willing to receive and pick up on the small things. They are like a sponge that absorbs all the water and they need to know that it can be these small things that help grab the win,” said the 33-year-old. “We are still a work in progress much like anything else in life. Being prepared or not, we’ll have to jump into the fire to face it,” added the American | The Brunei Times
