The return of Arwind Santos’ Spider-Man dunk is a matter of when not a matter of if.
Santos seems hell-bent on doing his signature dunk in an official game despite the fact that it has been banned by the PBA.
Looks like he’s ready to pay the fine anyway and he’s just looking for the perfect time to strike.
Tuesday’s Game 4 against Phoenix in the Philippine Cup semifinals was not the time.
Arwind got his dunk in the first half against the Fuel Masters but tried his hardest not to stomp both his feet to the backboard.
The game was still close then and he would cost his team one free throw.
“Baka mamaya biglang matalo kami ng one point,” he said.
“Eh ayokong mangyari yon. Pero muntik na, muntik ko na itaas yung paako, napigilan ko,” Santos added.
Still, while he managed to control himself this time, the Spider-Man dunk is coming.
It’s just a matter of time.
“Naisip ko, plano ko gawin yon pag patapos na tapos tambak,” Santos said.
