The addition of Tyler Lamb and Freddie Lish during the midseason last year was the turnaround move they had to do to be a top contender. Last season, the Mono Vampire swept the top-seeded Formosa Dreamers in the quarterfinals.
Adding on the list of their players are local stars Chitchai Ananti and Teerawat Chanthachon who both played impressively on both ends of the floor.
Further, it is worth noting that guard Freddie Lish only needs to bank 16 points to reach the 1,000-point milestone.
With the firepower and stacked roster of the Mono Vampire, will they be able to finally catch their first title?
For the San Miguel Alab Pilipinas, the team will be playing this season without 3x Local MVP Ray Parks Jr., and Renaldo Balkman who was the 2018 Co-Defensive Player of the Year.
Without the big guns of Alab, the team is looking to find their rhythm with newly-signed Nick King who played for the Maine Red Claws in the NBA G-League where he averaged 8.5 points and 4.9 rebounds per game and Khalif Wyatt.
All-around player Jason Brickman and dynamic scorer Jeremiah Gray are also the players to watch out for this new lineup of the San Miguel Alab Pilipinas.
A new core is in place for Alab Pilipinas. Will they be able to find their balance and have good chemistry among the players? Who will step up?
These teams are looking to start the season strong—catch them as they face each other today at Stadium 29, 3 PM (GMT + 7) in Bangkok, Thailand.
