How effective a player is can be measured by his production per minute, according to San Miguel Beer skipper Arwind Santos.
“Para sa akin importante yun na kung mahaba ang minuto mo, kailangan marami kang nako-contribute,” Santos told sportswriters after the game. “Nakikita ng mga tao na naglalaro ako ng mahaba kaya maganda rin nako-contribute ko like rebound, depensa, puntos.”
“Mahirap maging useless, binibigyan ka ng mahabang oras na wala ka man lang halos maiambag. Para sa akin, kung mahaba minuto mo, tapos pangit ang laro mo, yung depensa mo, hindi ka nakaka-score o nakaka-rebound, siguro kailangan mag-isip ka. Apektado ka doon kapag wala ka man lang halos kontribusyon.”
Santos has remained the most consistent performer so far.
He had another solid game in the Beermen’s fourth win in five games, finishing with another double-double performance of 12 points and 11 rebounds. In the last two games, Santos also was a solid presence on the defensive end, averaging 2.5 blocks.
Although the Beermen are doing good so far, the former PBA Most Valuable Player believes they still need some improvement to do, particularly in handling games during the end game.
“May mga dapat kaming ayusin like mga small things in the end. Kailangan mo siyang gawin sa endgame, pero minsan hindi naming magawa,” he added.
