After 18 years, Caguioa still has that spark
CLARK FREEPORT – Mark Caguioa is not thinking of hanging his jersey anytime soon, and that’s because of his fans who have faithfully allied behind him in his 18 seasons so far in the PBA.
On Sunday night at the Angeles University Foundation Sports and Cultural Center powered by Smart 5G, the 40-year-old superstar guard of Barangay Ginebra made history as the longest-tenured player in a single franchise, surpassing Alvin Patrimonio (Purefoods) and Harvey Carey (TNT).
The 2001 Rookie of the Year saw six minutes and 35 seconds of action in the Kings’ 105-91 thrashing of Meralco for a third straight win in the Philippine Cup.
“Actually, I don’t even know that (record). Gusto ko lang pasalamatan ‘yung mga fans. It’s the fans that’s making me you know, parang nahihirapan talaga ako mag-retire. It’s because of them. They keep me going,” said Caguioa, who tallied two points and two rebounds.
