Parks wants LeBron-type game
MANILA, Philippines -- If basketball fans think Bobby Ray Parks is already satisfied with his success in the UAAP, they would have to brace for more as the National University star is thirsting for more.
Following a dramatic setback in the 2013 FilOil Flying V Premeir Cup finals, Parks stood strong instead of losing hope, and the two-time UAAP MVP is confident that the Bulldogs will soar and roar once Season 76 fires off next week.
"The preseason is a time to get better, make adjustments and gain confidence," he said. "Everybody improved. We just need to execute better and make stops."
Working to be the best
Parks said there is nothing more to prove after copping the top individual plum in the league for two straight seasons. This time, he intends to work on other aspects of his game to finally deliver the coveted UAAP title to Sampaloc.
Ultimately, the top Bulldog wants to develop a game similar to 4-time NBA MVP LeBron James: focusing on dictating the pace, taking over when needed and helping the team in so many ways.
"Basically, I'm working on a LeBron-type game," he stressed. "I want to control the pace, crash the boards, get to the open man and really get control of the game."
Despite this, a third consecutive MVP trophy is far from his mind now, as his only goal is to win the crown for NU.
"I have nothing left to prove with MVPs," he said. "I just wanna put a stamp on my mark in UAAP Season 76 and win the championship." - Rappler.com
