To be a member of that group, it’s really an honor to be there,” he said.Despite the achievement, Tenorio wants the honor to be set aside as he focuses on his bigger goal with the Gin Kings.However, he’s discounting the possibility of climbing up the ladder as his career goes on that could get him to the top 10.“We’ll see. We’ll be able to achieve that if we just continue playing every game. We just have to pray that there won’t be injuries, but we’ll make it as long as we’re playing,” he said.ADVERTISEMENT Photo by Tristan Tamayo/ INQUIRER.netCracking the top 15 of the PBA’s career assists ladder, LA Tenorio couldn’t help but accept the realities that come with the every milestone.“That means I’m getting old,” Tenorio said with a chuckle after dishing out seven dimes in Ginebra’s 104-97 victory over GlobalPort on Sunday to pad his career assist total to 2,464, good for 15th all-time.ADVERTISEMENT Brian Heruela arrival bolsters Phoenix backcourt, defense 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 Jarencio laments late-game meltdown in loss to Ginebra Steam emission over Taal’s main crater ‘steady’ for past 24 hours MOST READ Redemption is sweet for Ginebra, Scottie Thompson Scottie Thompson also worthy of Finals MVP, thinks Cone Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next OSG plea to revoke ABS-CBN franchise ’a duplicitous move’ – Lacson OSG plea to revoke ABS-CBN franchise ’a duplicitous move’ – Lacson Jiro Manio arrested for stabbing man in Marikina LATEST STORIES View comments Meralco ‘never the same’ after Almazan injury in PBA Finals Judy Ann’s 1st project for 2020 is giving her a ‘stomachache’ Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.
