"Wag po tayo magyayabang, dahil alam niyo, mahigit sampung taong rin tayo halos hindi nananalo. Nung kasikatan ng ibang team, talagang naaawa ako pag napapanood ko yung team natin noon, halos hindi po tayo maka-match. Naalala niyo ba yung galing ni Jimmy Alapag? Nagmukha tayong kawawa." --- SMC big boss Ramon S. Ang
San Miguel's current dynasty didn't come easy.
Before the Beermen won four straight All-Filipino titles and took six of the last 10 conferences, the team struggled a lot.
That's why as San Miguel celebrated another Philippine Cup conquest, the company's big boss reminded his flagship team to always stay grounded.
It's great to keep winning but the Beermen have to remember to always stay humble and always keep the fans in mind.
"Ang basketball, entertainment ‘to sa mga kababayan natin," San Miguel Corporation President Ramon S. Ang said Tuesday during the team's 2018 Philippine Cup victory party.
"Sana mag-provide tayo ng magandang entertainment, games, at wag po tayo magyayabang, dahil alam niyo, mahigit sampung taong rin tayo halos hindi nananalo," he added.
RSA mentioned that at the height of another All-Filipino dynasty some years back, his Beermen couldn't even issue a proper challenge.
That's why now that San Miguel is back on top, it's almost a requirement for te Beermen to always, always, make sure to keep their feet on the ground even as they make their latest case for a Grand Slam.
"Nung kasikatan ng ibang team, talagang naaawa ako pag napapanood ko yung team natin noon, halos hindi po tayo maka-match. Naalala niyo ba yung galing ni Jimmy Alapag? Nagmukha tayong kawawa. Yung dumating yung Jayson Castro, saksakan ng galing," RSA said.
"Eh ngayon po, nabigyan tayo ng Diyos ng konting swerte. Kaya wag po tayo magyayabang. We are providing a good entertainment to everybody. But of course, pinagdadasal po natin na sana manalo po tayo ng [gestures with No. 3 sign] Grand Slam. Yun naman po ay pinagdadasal," he added.
