Last night (July 22, 2018), after the SMB successfully won their series against the Alaka Aces, Santos said the following during his interview with the media:
“Tingin ko Ginebra. Kaya sila na siguro paghahandaan namin. Hindi namin nakikita na tatalunin sila ng Rain or Shine. Ewan ko lang. Bilog ang bola. Hindi natin masabi. Tingin ko Ginebra. Unang-una, ‘yung bawat isa-isa, masaya. Parang hindi namin nabigyan ng chance na makaganti ‘yung Alaska. Masaya kami doon kasi feeling namin, nung unang talo namin, makakabalik pa sila. Ngayon, okay ‘yung mood namin. Tingin ko, malaking bagay ‘yun pagdating ng Game One. Ang goal namin, maka-grand slam pero ang maganda dito, marami kaming natutunan sa larong ‘to against Alaska. Sana magamit namin ‘yun against Ginebra.”
According to ROS, Santos prediction that Ginebra will make it to the Finals is disrespectful. See list of statementsNow, here are the list of strong statements of alternate ROS Governor against Arwind Santos statements.
"As alternate governor of RoS, I take offense in Arwind Santos statement that there is no way our team will beat Ginebra in this series. What makes him so sure about his statement, does he know something we don’t?"
"Time and again we have showed that we can beat Ginebra on any given Sunday. We have the talent, skills and motivation to beat them. What I don’t understand is how this player can issue a statement that is a blatant disregard for respect to another team who is trying its very best to reach the finals."
"This is an insult to the entire Rain or Shine organisation and its fans and I cant take this sitting down. We will not be bullied and cower in defeat. This gives us extra motivation to “dare to dream” and achieve what Mr. santos said as “impossible."
"Probably success has clouded this players mind in his little head that he did not realise that his arrogance has no place in basketball. Basketball should be about respect, integrity and humility which we intend to uphold and be an inspiration to the youth and the entire Filipino nation."
