Standhardinger wants Kai Sotto to "destroy" people

"It doesn't matter who he plays, he just gotta come out there and destroy people, and he's capable of that," Standhardinger said on Kai Sotto.
PBA 2017 no. 1 pick Christian Standhardinger of San Miguel is not one to tell Kai Sotto what to on the basketball court.
However, if there's one thing that Sotto can work on in order to live up to his overwhelming potential, it's that he has to come to the court with the intention of dominating his opponents each time.
After finally sharing the court with the 16-year-old Ateneo star, Standhardinger is impressed.
The Fil-German forward says that Kai can do so much on the basketball court.
"Great player, he's a very talented guy," Standhardinger said of Sotto.
"If he comes with a killer [mentality], like to really put people to the rim and really go hard and not let anybody push him around, he can make it to the league I'm not gonna lie to you guys. The only thing that he has to develop is that little killer instinct," he added.
Standhardinger believes that no one can match up to Kai and Sotto should be able to realize that moving forward.
Kai should assert his dominance according to Christian.
"It doesn't matter who he plays, he just gotta come out there and destroy people, and he's capable of that," Standhardinger said.
While Standhardinger is not about to "mentor" Sotto anytime soon, he says that Kai can come to him anytime for advice.
"If he has a question I'll tell him [an answer] but I wouldn't say like I'm guiding or mentoring him," Standhardinger said.
"He [Kai] knows that if he ever needs help or a piece of my mind, my door is always open. He has my number. But I'm not here going around mentoring people because I think everyone is a great basketball player already and have their stuff together," he added.
