Balls-Eye: Will Standhardinger be Worthy of SMB Releasing Three Men?

Christian Standhardinger

San Miguel Beermen took a huge risk on giving up three players (Jay-R Reyes, Ronald Tubid, Rashawn McCarthy) of their current roster to have the right to let Christian Standhardinger on their team. With this huge change, how can Standhardinger suffice the power needed by SMB which the whole team believes it is in him?

Well, we do not have that much data of Standhardinger and how well he played in the PBA league itself but chances are high, we’ve seen him play for Gilas Pilipinas. If you have watched his Gilas games, then most probably, you believe that he’s a humongous addition to SMB, way bigger than the player loss of the team.

What are the ups and downs of the Standhardinger addition?

Let us start with the latter. SMB lost a clutch shooter like Ronald Tubid. Tubid is known for his outside shooting hustle off the bench. He scores well as part of SMB’s second unit. Well, Standhardinger isn’t much of an outside shooter. He plays inside and post-up matchup most of the time – due to his size and style of play of course.

Of course, SMB would not do such a huge thing for nothing. Standhardinger will be a great addition to the interior of the Beermen. With a strong center June Mar Fajardo backed up by another ferocious big man, defense will be even tighter and their points in the paint would increase significantly.

This style of a team, despite not having a great outside shooting when speaking of Fajardo and Standhardinger is still a great weapon to match up teams with high outside shooting percentage.

With a very solid interior, then the higher chances of controlling the rebounds. It is not as though outside shooters would not miss a single shot, so every time they miss shots, then that means a lost possession on their part.

Another thing is that the inside or the shaded area is called the region of high percentage shots, meaning shots have high chances of going in as compared to the region beyond the arc which is the strength of SMB.

Standhardinger is a great addition for the SMB.

Yes he isn’t much of a shooter, but he and Fajardo aren’t the only one to carry the team, their outside weakness will be filled by Alex Cabagnot. Another thing is that SMB is looking to re-sign gun-shooter Super Marcio, Marcio Lassiter.

With this current lineup, SMB leaves no room for weakness.
