After all, they don’t have the fondest of histories after the two got into a heated commotion during the Commissioner’s Cup that saw both of them get ejected.“I don’t know if it’s going to be awkward but he’s my teammate now and if he wants to say something from the past that’s him.But with the two players now after the same thing, which is to add to San Miguel’s trophy case, the Lassiter is willing to set aside the difference for a bigger cause.“I just want to play, I’m just going to play the way I’ve been playing and focus on winning a championship and that’s the most important thing,” said Lassiter. “If he wants to be part of it that’s great and let’s keep it going.”“We know how to win so at the end we want to put it together and use their strengths and use them to be a better team.”Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.
