Speechless: Terrence Romeo kept his silence for the 2nd straight game
Globalport is having a pretty bad start, losing their first four games. That made Terrence' 20.7 points, 4.0 rebounds, 6.3 assists and 40% 3FG, useless. Actually, they have three players who are averaging 20 or more points per game with Terrence, Stanley and their import.
It is quite perplexing though that Terrence chose to keep his mouth shut. Silence could be more meaningful than expected. Could it mean that Terrence is getting tired of their misfortunes? What is the message that he is trying to send to his team?
The possibility is vast, so watch out for Romeo if the team continue their slide.
