I play the best when the whole crowd is against me, when the game is on the line, when everybody wants me to fail.“If some fans want to boo me and have fun by it, do it; that’s also helping me,” added Standhardinger. “There’s nothing other than love for the Filipino fans and their passion and their puso for basketball.”Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next The 6-foot-7 big man unloaded 40 points on top of 17 rebounds, five steals, and three assists as he steered his team, Hong Kong Eastern Sports Club, past Mono Vampire, 112-105, Friday at Stadium 29 here.Standhardinger led Hong Kong to a 3-0 start and had fans abuzz all over social media as to how well he would pair with reigning four-time MVP June Mar Fajardo.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSRedemption is sweet for Ginebra, Scottie ThompsonSPORTSMayweather beats Pacquiao, Canelo for ‘Fighter of the Decade’SPORTSBrian Heruela arrival bolsters Phoenix backcourt, defenseAnd even more impressive was the fact that Standhardinger brushed off his Herculean effort, choosing instead to nitpick on his miscues.“Actually, today was not a good day.
