According to the 31-year-old LA Tenorio he decided that his name be taken out of consideration for the national team which will compete in the highly anticipated FIBA Asia Championship in September wherein the Philippines is considered as one of the contenders.

The Brgy. Ginebra veteran playmaker noted that he thought of his decision for a long time and he also talked to his family and close friends about his decision not to be part of the national pool, which according to him, it is good for himself, his team and the Gilas Pilipinas.

LA Tenorio stated that he has been with the national basketball team for almost four years and the fatigue factor is evident on his game right now as his output took a dip, so he came out with the decision to be fair with both the Gilas and Ginebra.

The veteran guard previously averaged almost 15 points and nearly six assists per game in his first season with Brgy. Ginebra, but his numbers went down to just 10 points and 3.8 assists per game last season.

Aside from the fatigue factor, LA Tenorio also revealed that one of the reason why he don’t want to join the Gilas pool is his elbow injury that has been bothering him for the past few days.
