Slaughter and Ellis teamed up for the Gin Kings for 4 years – a run that saw the beloved franchise win the Governors' Cup title in 2016.

However, Ellis was traded to Blackwater with Dave Marcelo for Art dela Cruz and Raymond Aguilar the next year and has been out of the league since. 

Ellis, a three-time PBA All-Star, currently plays for Luang Prabang in the Thailand Basketball League, where he is posting impressive numbers. 

Slaughter, meanwhile, flew back home to the USA for his basketball hiatus weeks after keying Ginebra to capture the 2019 Governors' Cup crown. 

The PBA has suspended its season and all league activities until further notice due to the novel coronavirus outbreak in the country and ordered teams to stop practicing– Rappler.com

Delfin Dioquino dreamt of being a PBA player, but he did not have the skills to make it. So he pursued the next best thing to being an athlete – to write about them. He took up journalism at the University of Santo Tomas and joined Rappler as soon as he graduated in 2017.
