For all the fanfare surrounding his arrival, Christian Standhardinger produced a dud of a debut on Wednesday.

Finishing with only four points, five rebounds, two assists, and two steals, the Fil-German’s first game in the PBA wasn’t the kind many had expected, especially with Meralco taking the 93-85 win over San Miguel.

But he himself knew that joining a powerhouse team like the Beermen, opportunities will be scarce. And all he’s trying to do is blend in as much as he could.

“That’s what I’ve told guys I’m gonna do. I’m not gonna go out here like in the ABL where I’m like the main scorer of the team and try to aggressively get my points,” he said.

Take away the scoring and that’s where Standhardinger wants to thrive on — doing the dirty work which he feels is necessary in fitting in with the defending champions.
