Guiao wary of ‘dangerous’ Kia

first_img“Some people think that Kia is an easy assignment but it’s not. Definitely they will be a better team than last year, and that’s what we have to prepare for.”The tussle will also serve as the PBA debut of Kiefer Ravena, the second overall pick in the 2017 PBA Rookie Draft.Guiao said the key for the Road Warriors in this first game will be to focus on the task at hand and not get distracted.“We’ll try to focus on what we can do and not on the uncertainties and the controversies. You can’t do anything about it. It’s just a distraction, if you think about it,” he said.ADVERTISEMENT Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard PLAY LIST 02:14Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard02:56NCRPO pledges to donate P3.5 million to victims of Taal eruption00:56Heavy rain brings some relief in Australia02:37Calm moments allow Taal folks some respite03:23Negosyo sa Tagaytay City, bagsak sa pag-aalboroto ng Bulkang Taal01:13Christian Standhardinger wins PBA Best Player award Brian Heruela arrival bolsters Phoenix backcourt, defense Steam emission over Taal’s main crater ‘steady’ for past 24 hours Photo by Tristan Tamayo/ INQUIRER.netYeng Guiao has been branded as an unconventional coach before — one who uses unusual lineups and fields in players who do not necessarily fit the mold of most cookie cutters.But even the fiery coach would admit that he has not seen anything as unconventional as to that of Kia’s approach.ADVERTISEMENT View comments Jiro Manio arrested for stabbing man in Marikina Redemption is sweet for Ginebra, Scottie Thompson Durant spoils Kobe’s special night, lifts Warriors over Lakers in OT “We haven’t seen the ‘unconventional’ ways they’re talking about,” Guiao said as new-look NLEX faces the Picanto to open their 2018 PBA Philippine Cup campaign Wednesday at Filoil Flying V Centre in San Juan.“We are also going to be in the dark because that might be the weapon they are talking about.
