Santos downplays shouting vs Jones: ‘Pinaamoy lang ‘yung hininga n’ya’


San Miguel veteran forward Arwind Santos played down his hard foul against Terrence Jones and the ensuing staredown with the TNT import in Game 4 of the PBA Commissioner’s Cup Finals.

Jones drew a hard foul from Santos at the 6:47 mark of the final quarter.

This prompted the temperamental TNT import to let out a roar right on the SMB forward’s face before walking away and smiling off the incident.

“Nagsigawan lang,” Santos said when asked about the incident. “Pinaamoy lang n’ya ‘yung hininga n’ya. Amoy Amerikano. Amoy burger. Sanay na ako. Ganun lang talaga kapag nagkakainitan na.”

Santos, who was choked by former SMB import Renaldo Balkman in one of the most memorable on-court fights in history, said it was all part of the game.

“Gulatan lang naman kung sino masisindak. Part lang ng game ‘yun. Kaya lang, mas malakas siya bumuga sa akin, in fairness.”
