ARWIND Santos was hardly worried despite him missing San Miguel Beer’s Commissioner’s Cup game against GlobalPort on Friday.
The SMB star forward, who nursed minor hamstring injuries, said he believed the Beermen had more than enough firepower to beat GlobalPort on Friday night. True enough, the team rolled to a 120-109 victory.
“Hindi na bago sa amin yun na kahit wala ako o si June Mar (Fajardo),” Santos said. “Sabi ko nga, yung team namin parang Marvel, maraming hero.
“Mahirap (kami) talunin,” he added. “Lalo na yung import namin, nakukuha na niya yung sistema kaya mas napapaganda.”
Santos said he will be fit to play in their next game on Wednesday against Blackwater at Ynares Center.
“Pahinga lang naman,” the 34-year-old cager said. “Sabi ng mga PT namin sobrang tight siya, pero kailangan lang ipahinga.”
By missing the game on Friday, though, Santos’ streak of 305 consecutive games played – third all-time longest – came to an end.
Santos said he didn't mind.
“Hindi naman (nasayangan),” the former league MVP said. “Tingin ko naman malalagpasan ko rin naman yung iba.”
“Basta patuloy lang ako gagabayan ni God na hindi ako ma-injure ng sobrang lala. Tingin ko dere-deretso yun.”
