San Miguel suspends Santos, Nabong, Tubid indefinitely

After investigating the melee that occurred last Sunday involving players of San Miguel, the team’s brass has decided to indefinitely suspend Arwind Santos, Kelly Nabong, and Ronald Tubid.

“The management of the San Miguel Beermen has decided to indefinitely suspend Arwind Santos, Kelly Nabong, and Ronald Tubid, following a tussle that broke at a team practice last November 17,” read the team’s statement.

According to reports, the fiasco started when Wells approached Santos after a hard screen that sent him to the floor. Tubid came to the defense of Santos, while Nabong backed Dez Wells.

The statement did not say anything about the fate of Wells.

Still, San Miguel assured that they have settled the issue. The punishment then stems from how their actions do not reflect the values of the company.

“While the conflict has been resolved, and the incident occurred away from the public eye, the San Miguel organization does not tolerate unsportsmanlike behavior,” it said.

“Basketball is a physical game where emotions can run high, but we believe that PBA players have to be held to a higher standard of professionalism and sportsmanship at all times,” the statement continued.

“It is for this reason that we’ve come to this decision, even if it impacts our bid for a second franchise grand slam. Our commitment now, moving forward, is that we will work doubly hard and play our very best, for our fans and for the organization.”

San Miguel is currently 6-4 in the ongoing PBA Governors’ Cup. The Beermen are looking to win a Grand Slam.
