    NORTH coach Yeng Guiao cherished the opportunity to handle his rivals turned wards during the PBA All-Star Game on Sunday night.

    Teaming up with players he’s engaged in mind games and psychological wars with n the past, the Rain or Shine coach was glad to be on the same side with them for once and getting the win over the South side, 154-151.

    “From the beginning, sinabi ko na sa kanila na mag-enjoy tayo habang magkakasama tayo. Kasi pag hindi na tayo magkakasama, hindi na tayo mag-eenjoy,” Guiao said with a chuckle. “Alam naman nila yun eh. Tanggap nila.”

    Guiao was reunited with Japeth Aguilar and teamed up with usual postseason opponents Marc Pingris, and Alex Cabagnot, as well as young guns Terrence Romeo, Stanley Pringle, and Troy Rosario.

    “You relish the memory, the camaraderie,” Guiao said. “There are guys here whom I haven’t coached yet, sila Stanley, Terrence, and Troy, and it was an enjoyable experience being with them, coaching them and preparing them even for a day.”

    “It wasn’t really difficult coaching the team,” he added. “They had their natural chemistry, maganda yung samahan, and we all had fun.”

    And the cohesion led to the victory.

    “Natalo kami sa dance showdown kaya kailangan bumawi kami sa laro,” Guiao said with a smile.

    “It was a good mix and balance of entertainment and at the same time, towards the end, everybody really wanted to win,” he added.
