The San Mig Coffee Mixers made history by winning their fourth straight PBA title and completing a PBA grand slam after defeating the Rain or Shine Elasto Painters, 92-89, in the do-or-die fifth game of the 2014 PLDT Home TelPad-PBA Governors’ Cup.
The Coffee Mixers became the fourth team to achieve a grand slam in league history after Crispa in 1976 and 1983, San Miguel Beer in 1989, and Alaska in 1996.
“This four-peat, this grand slam still hasn’t hit me yet. I’m overwhelemed by it. It’s just a great feeling from a coaching standpoint,” said legendary coach Tim Cone, who clinched his 18th PBA title and second grand slam.
“Just watching the journey we had and being able to watch these guys and observe, it’s truly just an honor. I was telling the guys, ‘You can only do that once in your life’. And now two of us, Johnny (Abarrientos) and myself have been able to do it twice in our lives. I was telling our players, ‘This is gonna be the greatest times of your life, right now, right here. This will be the ones you’ll always remember in your career,’” Cone added.
