Simon Enciso thrilled to finally play alongside ‘brother’ Chris Ross

Simon Enciso is thrilled at the thought of finally sharing the court with ‘brother’ Chris Ross.

The 31-year old Enciso, who was acquired by the Beermen from Terrafirma in a one-on-one deal for Alex Cabagnot last November, still hasn’t had the opportunity to play with Ross since the latter had an extended furlough in the United States due to the death of his father.

Ross’ return is certainly a welcome development not only for Enciso but for the entire team still smarting from the sudden departure of mainstays Cabagnot and Arwind Santos who along with Ross, June Mar Fajardo and Marcio Lassiter used to form the dreaded ‘Death Five’ which has been responsible for giving the franchise a significant amount of championships.

Team manager Gee Abanilla confirmed that Ross will indeed be suiting up for the team’s game against TNT on Wednesday, February 16.

“Oh man, I can’t wait. What C-Ross brings to the table is priceless. I can’t wait to play with him. I’ve only competed against him. So it would be cool to just take the floor with my brother at the same time,” said Enciso.

The two Fil-Am guards have had their fair share of on-court battles throughout the years which is why it’s a big deal for Enciso to play alongside the two-time Defensive Player of the Year for a change.

“Right. That’s what I’m really looking forward to, finally playing together with him,” added the former Alaska and Tropang Giga playmaker.
