first_imgGetting the first win in the bag is a big step for Ginebra, especially for Slaughter who sees this conference as an acid test for his side to prove that it can win titles without the help of a reinforcement.“Last conference, we won the championship with Justin (Brownlee), and that’s great. But now that we’re without him, we’ve got to step up and I’m ready to take on that role,” he said as he and the rest of the Gin Kings seek to build on this victory moving forward.“It’s only our first game and the goal for us is to win the championship. It’s good to get that first win, but we still got a lot of room to improve.”Ginebra will face GlobalPort next on January 7.ADVERTISEMENT OSG plea to revoke ABS-CBN franchise ’a duplicitous move’ – Lacson Photo by Tristan Tamayo/ INQUIRER.netBOCAUE — Counted on to be the main man for Ginebra this 2018 PBA Philippine Cup, Greg Slaughter is well aware of the larger load he has to carry for the Gin Kings this season.“I understand that I have a big responsibility now.
