Leongson/INQUIRER.netLooking to make a good impression in his first day of work, Jason Perkins thought he was the first man at Upper Deck Sports Center when Phoenix began its team practices on Monday, coming to the venue an hour and a half early.But to his surprise, his sharp-shooting teammates Jeff Chan and Matthew Wright were already there. Chan and Wright were both soaked in sweat as Perkins entered the court.ADVERTISEMENT Margot Robbie talks about filming ‘Bombshell’s’ disturbing sexual harassment scene Jake says relationship with Shaina ‘goes beyond physical attraction’ Jo Koy: My brain always wants to think funny “I thought I came in early to practice, but Chan was already in a sweat by the time I came in here and Wright was already getting up shots. So, yeah I got to get my work ethic up. I didn’t realize it was like that here,” he said.Perkins knows that it’s just the kind of effort the Fuel Masters will need from him as the team enters a new era with coach Louie Alas at the helm.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSRedemption is sweet for Ginebra, Scottie ThompsonSPORTSMayweather beats Pacquiao, Canelo for ‘Fighter of the Decade’SPORTSFederer blasts lack of communication on Australian Open smog“We’re not the biggest team, but if I have to switch to three, I’m ready for it. We’ll show it to those teams that we have a lot of heart and we really work hard,” said the fourth overall pick of this year’s draft as he acknowledged on the size disparity the league’s best teams have against Phoenix.Perkins is also well aware of the luxury he has being in a virtually same system, with Alas also enforcing a defensive pressure similar to that of Aldin Ayo’s in La Salle. But with him going up on a higher level, the 25-year-old forward knows that he has to take his game to different level as he hopes to learn from veterans Doug Kramer and Willie Wilson.“It’s not a shock to me seeing the press because coach Ayo has the most physically  demanding ones, so coming to another press, I’m already used to it,” he said. “I’m used with the press and moving as a big man and it’s something that I think I’m prepared for. But I’d really like to continue learning and talking to the older guys like Willie and Doug.” OSG plea to revoke ABS-CBN franchise ‘a duplicitous move’ – Lacson Steam emission over Taal’s main crater ‘steady’ for past 24 hours MOST READ Coco’s house rules on ‘Probinsyano’ set UAAP Starting Five: Week 9 Kiss-and-tell matinee idol’s conquests: True stories or tall tales?
