PBA: SMB bully ball coming up?
“Kapag pukpukan na medyo natatambakan na min, nakakalapit naman kami eh. Hindi pa kailangan [play physical]. Ang maganda dito, hindi pa lumalabas yung pagka-bully namin talaga. Hindi pa kami pumapatol totally,” — Arwind Santos on physicality.

Looking to take down San Miguel’s All-Filipino dynasty, TNT and Phoenix have resorted to physical play on the Beermen in these PBA Philippine Cup playoffs.

The KaTropa already failed, losing 1-2 in the quarterfinals, and the top-ranked Fuel Masters have had no success so far, losing the best-of-7 semifinals, 0-2.

Yeah, San Miguel’s playoff opponents will have try harder.

“Hindi naman bago yung physicality sa amin,” forward Arwind Santos said.

“Ever since naman, sa tagal na ng samahan namin marami na kaming napagdaanan na ganyan,” he added.

Despite the punishment they’ve been taking, the Beermen have actually done a good job of keeping their cool.

However, when push comes to shove, the reigning four-time champions will be ready to be physical themselves.

But for now, looks like there’s no need for that because San Miguel has been winning still.

“Ready naman kami, expect na namin na gagawin nila yang pisikal na laro tapos bully. Naka-ready naman kami,” Arwind said.

“Kapag pukpukan na medyo natatambakan na min, nakakalapit naman kami eh. Hindi pa kailangan [play physical]. Ang maganda dito, hindi pa lumalabas yung pagka-bully namin talaga. Hindi pa kami pumapatol totally,” he added.
