JUST less than a week since his appointment, new San Mig assistant coach Jason Webb already feels right at home at the Mixers camp.
The former La Salle basketball player turned sports analyst and now bench tactician said there was no transition period needed upon his arrival in one of the most successful teams in the PBA.
From the coaches led by the winningest PBA coach Tim Cone, to the players down to the thousands of San Mig fans, Webb was glad to be welcomed with open arms.
It's very easy to get along with them. I've been here for four or five days and (they're) very welcoming, from the coaches, to the players, especially the fans," he told to Spin.ph.
"Whatever transition there should've been or could've been halos wala dahil ang dali at ang gaan ng pagtanggap ng lahat, streamline is very easy," he added.
As a broadcaster, Webb used to be from the outside looking in. Now that he is a part of the team, Webb said he no longer wonders why San Mig is on the brink of a rare grand slam.
"I'm very impressed with the things that they do, that's why they won the last three championships," he said after the Mixers opened a 2-0 lead over Talk 'N Text in their semifinal series.
But working alongside fellow assistant coaches Johnny Abarrientos, Richard del Rosario, and Mon Jose, the 40-year old Webb considers himself as a Padawan learning from the Master Jedi himself.
"I'm here as a new guy that's just learning," he said. "I'm a young Padawan and it's a great opportunity."
