PBA Media Bureau

Winning championships is one thing and making history is another.

And after San Miguel claimed the 2017 PBA Commissioner’s Cup, Arwind Santos knows that this group of Beermen have a golden chance to join en elite company by completing a rare Grand Slam.

“That’s one thing in history that our batch hasn’t gotten yet,” Santos said in Filipino.

The 2013 PBA Most Valuable Player acknowledges the huge historical implications if indeed San Miguel collects the Triple Crown.

“If we get it, we’ll be compared to the likes of Ramon Fernandez and Hector Calma,” he said, alluding to the 1989 San Miguel squad which pulled off the feat under the tutelage of coach Norman Black.

“It’s a motivation for our group that as much as possible, we could get that. And next conference, I think we can and I wish we can.” – INQUIRER.net
