Rain or Shine sharpshooter Jeff Chan was named Most Valuable Player of the Governors’ Cup finals by the PBA Press Corps on Sunday shortly after leading the Elasto Painters to their first title in franchise history.
The 6-foot-3 Bacolod native capped a career year that saw him winning the league’s Most Improved Player award as well as a seat in the Second Mythical Team.
After struggling in the team’s Game Six loss where he shot just 1-of-9 from beyond the arc, Chan rebounded by sparking Rain or Shine in its Game Seven triumph, scoring nine of his 16 points in the first quarter to set the tone for the Elasto Painters.
Chan, along with import Jamelle Cornley and Gabe Norwood, carried the fight for Rain or Shine, which won despite losing star rookie Paul Lee in Game Two of the series.
