Super Marcio Says: Standhardinger Won't Make SMB Unstoppable. Just Yet

Lassiter added that Standhardinger needs to show up and play

San Miguel isn't unstoppable. Even with Christian Standhardinger arriving for the mid-season Commissioner's Cup.

That is according to Marcio Lassiter.

Just a few moments after the San Miguel Beermen clinch their 4th straight Philippine Cup championship after erasing a 23-point deficit in Game 5 of their best-of-7 series against the Magnolia Hotshots, the idea of seeing top pick, Christian Standhardiner, play alongside June Mar Fajardo and the rest of the Beermen is already in the air but apparently, the idea of having Christian Standhardinger will make the Beermen unstoppable doesn't amaze everyone in the Beermen, particularly Marcio Lassiter.

Lassiter, the most consistent player of San Miguel all throughout the championship, said that the arrival of top pick Christian Standhardinger, who is currently playing in the ABL, will automatically make the Beermen, a championship team. Sure, the Beermen are the defending champions heading into the Commissioner's Cup but one thing that Lassiter insisted is that the Beermen will have to live up to the hefty expectations that came along when they received the rights to pick Standhardinger from a controversial trade with then, Kia Picanto which is now known as the Columbian Dyip. 

Lassiter, who had 16 points but missed all of his 9 shots from deep in the clinching game, added that although he hasn't met Standhardinger, he already heard that the rookie is a great player and that he has seen him play in the ABL. However, he insisted that maybe the Beermen are that good on paper with Standhardinger on board but Standhardiner will need to show up and prove his worth that he is more than just the hype.


There's a bigger question here: Will Christian Standhardinger fit into a Beermen team that is already loaded in its frontline? There's no question that he can produce decent numbers as he has averaged 23 points and 11 rebounds in the ABL this season. If Standhardinger can play alongside the Kraken, then that can definitely make the Beermen, unstoppable.

Will Lonzo Ball Ever Develop His Offensive Game?

In the Lakers' game against the Miami Heat, there were two plays that caught my attention. One was that outlet pass by LeBron James to an open Lonzo Ball who was open for a layup. No one was even close to defending Lonzo at the point and he chose to softly lay it in which […] MoreThe post Will Lonzo Ball Ever Develop His Offensive Game? appeared first on Powcast Sports.


Details on Kiefer Ravena's PBA Salary Revealed, 350,000 a Month!

It's huge! Kiefer Ravena's salary means a lot is expected from him

If NLEX could offer him more then maybe they would but for now, Keifer Ravena would have to settle for a maximum rookie salary that's worth 8.5 million in three years. 
The 2nd overall pick of this year's draft may have waited to get into the PBA but that delay was worth it after the team who drafted him showed big confidence and locked him for three years. 
As per our source, his salary on a monthly basis will be at  P150,000 a month for the first year. Then will go to P225,000 and the last year would be at  P350,000. The salary isn't the highest as Terrence Romeo and JunMar Fajardo, two of the biggest names in the PBA is getting more or less half a million every month.

At 24 years old, however, the former Ateneo star is only one of the two players this rookie class who's getting a max deal, one of which is Rookie Christian Standhardinger.
Kiefer Ravena has shown excitement on twitter and ther…
