Ross knows what new import McKines is made of: ‘He wants to win’

As a five-time PBA champion, Chris Ross has been through a lot of playoff games and yet he could still remember that particular Saturday night when his San Miguel Beermen lost to the Rain or Shine Elasto Painters in Game 2 of the Governors’ Cup semifinals two years ago.

The game was forgettable for the Beermen, who lost, 113-110, after they blew a 20-point lead in the third quarter, but somehow, Ross recalled that moment on the fly.

Wendell McKines.
And how could he not? It was a game where then-Rain or Shine import

“I’ve never played with him but playing against him, he’s a beast,” said Ross, who doesn’t have to worry about slowing down McKines with the Oakland, California native suiting up for the Beermen in the 2017 Governors’ Cup.

“One game in the semifinals when he was still with Rain or Shine, he put 50 points on us so he’s a tough dude, he’s hungry, he wants to win and he knows the task at hand.”

McKines, who turns 29 next month, won’t get to play until the next several weeks but his work has already started in May when he joined SMB here.

Wendell McKines muscled his way to 53 points on 16-of-23 shooting from the field and 17 rebounds with five assists and five blocks to boot.
