So it’s a challenge for Tey to make his teammates better.”With two more games before the end of the first round, the PBA legend is just being patient as he hopes to turn Teodoro to the playmaker role he’s envisioning him to be for the benefit of the squad.“I’m here to guide him. That’s the job of a coach. Whatever the player’s weaknesses are, I have to tell it to him and help him improve on that. That’s my role,” said Meneses.ADVERTISEMENT Teodoro has been averaging 13.2 points on a 30.4-percent from three, on top of 3.2 rebounds and 1.8 assists this season.
