"I really wanted to play in the professional league over here out of college," he said. "I was recruited over here by Jim Kelly, who is now a scout with the Toronto Raptors. My plan was to come over here. I was going to play as a Filipino-American, so I would have played as one of their locals.
"Instead, I had the opportunity in Germany and I wanted to see Europe. My every intention was to play in Europe for a couple of years and then come back and finish it up and play, whatever, five, six, seven years in the Philippines. But then I got the opportunity with the Heat. So it's probably the only regret, not the way it turned out, obviously, but I wish I would have had an opportunity to play here for at least a season."
