Lewis Alfred Vasquez Tenorio (born July 9, 1984) is a Filipino professional basketball player and assistant coach for the Barangay Ginebra San Miguel of the Philippine Basketball Association (PBA). He is also an assistant coach for the Letran Knights of the Philippines’ NCAA.
He was nicknamed Showtime while he was on Alaska due to his speed, scoring and skills, and The Tinyente due to the initials of his name (L.T.). In Barangay Ginebra, he earned the nickname GINeral (combination of Ginebra’s product, gin, and the word general) for his great skills as a point guard and his passing ability.
During the 2006 PBA draft, Tenorio was the fourth overall draft pick by the San Miguel Beermen. He played an average of 25.5 minutes for Magnolia with a respectable average of 7.8 points, 4.6 assists and 3.6 rebounds in nine games.
In a surprise move in March 2008, he and Larry Fonacier were traded to Alaska Aces for Mike Cortez and Ken Bono. The Aces have been happy with the trade as they got a pure point guard in Tenorio to make life easier for Willie Miller who could now concentrate on his scoring.
In the first four games of the 2009–2010 KFC-PBA Philippine Cup, Tenorio did not disappoint Alaska’s expectation. As a starting point guard Tenorio led the Alaska team to a scrambling victory over San Miguel Beer in their first game. In their next three games Tenorio was ever the reliable point guard who led his team to the top of the standings in the PBA.
On August 31, 2012, Tenorio was traded to the Barangay Ginebra San Miguel in a six-player blockbuster deal. Tenorio was also famous because of his “Pambansang reverse” which is a reverse lay up made him famous in international basketball.
On October 14, 2016, Tenorio was recognized during the PBA Leo Awards Night as he was named to the PBA Mythical Second Team. On October 19, 2016, Tenorio was named as the 2016 PBA Governor’s Cup Finals Most Valuable Player after averaging 17.2 points, 4.7 assists and 3.8 rebounds against the Meralco Bolts.
On June 12, 2022, Tenorio played in his 700th consecutive game, the most consecutive games played for a PBA player. On December 10, 2022, he made his 1,178th three points field goals made and tied James Yap for third most all time. On March 1, 2023, Tenorio’s consecutive games played ended at 744 due to a groin injury.
