“I don’t think this will be broken in the near future but sabi ko nga eh, a record is there to be broken. But I hoe na habang nabubuhay kami, huwag na muna,” coach Leo said with a laugh on their 5-peat.

In the PBA, San Miguel Beer’s All-Filipino dynasty will come to an end at some point. The Beermen will eventually lose and they don’t even have to be in the Finals to do so.

Nothing in the world lasts forever.

Except for San Miguel’s unprecedented record of five straight Philippine Cup titles.

The Beermen can never win an All-Filipino title ever but their streak of five straight titles may never get matched much less broken.

“This championship is really special because a lot of people thought na the dynasty will be broken. Sabi nga nila, there’s no forever at itong dynasty will not be forever eh,” head coach Leo Austria said.

“But we’re so thankful to get this 5-peat. This is the legacy of our team. I cannot explain how happy we are,” he added.

The Beermen’s huge feat will be hard to match and surpass but it’s totally not impossible.

However, it could take a while and this San Miguel team is perfectly happy to take in all the bragging rights of being a five-peat champion until they  do it again next year and become a 6-peat champ.

“Anything could be possible, alam naman natin miracles could happen anytime and I think happened [in Game 7] is really for us,” Austria said.

“I don’t think this will be broken in the near future but sabi ko nga eh, a record is there to be broken. But I hope na habang nabubuhay kami, huwag na muna,” Coach Leo added with a laugh.
