RONALD Tubid welcomed the addition of Matt Ganuelas Rosser to an already loaded San Miguel team, immediately quashing concerns about a potential hit on his playing time with the entry of the younger, versatile wingman. 

The 14-year PBA veteran, in fact, said he has no problems sharing minutes with a forward eight years his junior who also takes pride in being a defensive specialist, especially if it means more wins for his team.

"Wala yun. Sa team namin wala naman ganun e. This team, this family is willing to sacrifice everything in order to get to the goal which is to get the win," Tubid said when asked about the possibility of losing playing time following the arrival of Rosser.

"Walang problema sa akin 'yun. Even if I play one minute, two minutes, walang problema sa akin yun. Basta ang importante manalo kami," he added.

Tubid is actually excited over the arrival of Rosser, whose versatility can be an asset for SMB on both ends of the floor. 

The two could also play side to side when the starters head back to the bench, forming what looks like a solid defensive wing tandem off the bench, with Tubid's tenacity and Rosser's length. 

"He's a good addition to our team. Kailangan mag-jell siya ng early sa team kasi we all know he can provide us height and he can play multiple positions," he said.
