A championship title in Philippine Basketball Association (PBA) D-League has become quite an obsession for the Racal Motors in the ongoing 2017 Foundation Cup.
Aside from making its brand doubly popular, the franchise owner Jad Racal knows that being No. 1 could mean fortifying their bid for a PBA stint.
“That’s our main goal,” said the team owner Jad Racal. “We’ve been trying to get the top players in the market to strengthen our lineup. We also have an efficient coaching staff who I believe could deliver.”
Jad Racal, with retired professional basketball player Jerry Codiñera as a head coach, defeated to Cignal HD in their winner-take-all Game 3 finale in the PBA Aspirants Cup finals.
“Once we get the championship title, the value and recall of the franchise will definitely increase,” said Jad Racal.
With scoring machines Mac Tallo, Rian Ayonayon and do-it-all guard Kent Salado, who recently delivered an unrivaled triple-double (11 points, 13 assists, 10 rebounds) in a 140-90 runaway victory over Zark’s Burger, the Alibaba are enjoying a 2-0 fresh start.
Prepping the field for the massive league, Jad Racal said that his ball club have already submitted a letter of intent to join the Philippine Basketball Association but the proposal has yet to be accepted.
“I believe we’re capable of being competitive in the PBA. As of now, we’re looking for ways to expand our company in the motorcycle industry by opening the doors for potential investors,” said the Racal Motors owner.
Driven with the same passion for the Racal Motors Alibaba’s championship title objective are Gwynee Capacio, Janus Lozada, Allan Mangahas, Roider Cabrera, Jon Ortuoste, Jamil Gabawan, Felix Apreku, Jeepy Faundo, Jovit Dela Cruz, Jason Gremaldo, Jebb Bulawan, Jamil Sheriff Santos, Gian Abrigo and Donald Gumaro.
“With the professional basketball players and coaches that we have, I’m confident that we can accomplish the target of becoming the number one team in the PBA D-League,” said Jad Racal.
