PLAYING with one's boss might give the uneasy feeling for the others.
But for Vigan Baluarte Wolves playing-owner Christian Singson, he wants no special treatment from his teammates in the ongoing Chooks-to-Go Pilipinas 3x3 President's League.
"Sinabi ko sa kanila na treat me like a normal player when we're on the court. Wala silang pressure na kailangan nilang ipasa yung bola sa akin. Gusto ko lang manalo. Laro lang, walang pressure na ako ang boss ninyo," said the son of former Ilocos Sur governor Chavit Singson.
True to form, there was none in the first leg of the first-of-its-kind 3x3 league in the country as Karl Dehesa, Joshua Webb, and JR Ongteco showed no signs of going easy with their boss once they hit the halfcourt.
Unfortunately, Vigan Baluarte failed to win all of its games in the opening leg, losing to Cebu-Max4 Birada and Pasay Voyagers to finish dead last in their group last Saturday.
As tough as the draw was, Singson said that the first leg served as an eye opener for the Wolves to double the effort in the next stagings.
"It's good. Sa skill level ng players, talagang malalakas sila. Dapat talaga we do our best," he said, keeping his faith on his crew.
"They're still doing their best, they're giving all their heart, they go hard, but this leg just didn't favor us. In the next leg, babawi kami."
Vigan Baluarte aims to bounce back in the second leg this Sunday, still at SM Megamall Events Center in Mandaluyong.
