Ar­wind turns at­ten­tion to Gi­las: ‘Ano pa gagawin ko, laglag na kami’

Watchmen Daily Journal - - Sports -

Ar­wind San­tos is turn­ing his at­ten­tion to Gi­las Pilip­inas.

Well, it’s only right.

“A-at­tend ako sa unang prac­tice. Ano pa gagawin ko, laglag na kami? Doon muna ako magco-con­cen­trate,” San­tos said Wed­nes­day af­ter his Beer­men saw their PBA sea­son end.

Faced with a twice-to-beat dis­ad­van­tage, San Miguel got dom­i­nated by Alaska in the 2018 PBA Gov­er­nors’ Cup quar­ter­fi­nals.

It’s pretty much the same end for the Beer­men as last sea­son when they made two Fi­nals be­fore even­tu­ally stop­ping in the first round of the Gov­er­nors’ Cup as the no. 6 seed.

“Nakakalungkot na na­t­alo tayo,” San­tos said.

“Hindi talaga ma­g­a­nda, pero ga­nun talaga. Sig­uro pinakita ng Diyos na hindi kami lagi nasa top. Kailan­gan bum­aba rin kami, bu­man­gon kami sa baba ta­pos magsim­ula ulit,” he added.

With San Miguel’s cam­paign now over, San­tos moves on to the Philip­pine na­tional team where he’s now a part of for the first time in nearly a decade.

San­tos re­unites with head coach Yeng Guiao in Gi­las. Guiao coached the 2009 Pow­er­ade Pilip­inas, San­tos’ only na­tional team stint so far.

“‘Di pa na­man ako kasama sa Fi­nal [12]. Para sa akin, pani­bagong chal­lenge ito. Mata­gal na rin ako ‘di nakaka­pag-laro sa Philip­pine team,” San­tos said.

“Thank you kay ni­nong, kay coach Yeng. Sana hindi siya magka­mali sa pag­pili sa’kin,” he added.

“A-at­tend ako sa unang prac­tice. Ano pa gagawin ko, laglag na kami? Doon muna ako magco-con­cen­trate,” San­tos said Wed­nes­day af­ter the San Miguel Beer­men saw their PBA sea­son end.
