Santos plainly put it as only trying to get into Jones' head.CAUGHT IN THE ACT. Arwind Santos draws flak from basketball fans on social media after being caught doing a monkey gesture towards Terrence Jones. Screenshot from ESPN5"Sinabi ko nga 'di ba? Mind games 'yun. Pero sinabihan naman ako kanina, kaya 'di ko na ginawa 'yun. Dati ginagawa ko 'yan, wala naman warning so okay lang
," Santos told reporters.(Like I said, that's just mind games. But I was told earlier not to do it anymore so I didn't. I was doing that before and they didn't give me a warning so it's okay.)"Kanina na-warning ako ni commissioner [Willie Marcial] tsaka ng mga coaches ko, kaya 'di ko na ginawa. Basketball mind games, '
di ba? Malay mo makita niya at mapikon siya 'pag tinatawag siya na ganoon."(I was warned by the commissioner [Willie Marcial] and my coaches earlier so I didn't do it anymore. It's just basketball mind games, right? Maybe he'll see it and he'll be irked.)
The veteran Beermen forward added he had done the act in the past and not just on the KaTropa import."Dati naman 'di ba, pwede mo isigaw 'yan. Kami noong nasa Air21 pa ako, time nila Dorian [Pena], tinatawag din namin na ganoon, gorilla. Pero wala 'yun, pang-asar lang 'yun, sinusubukan mo lang mang-asar kasi magaling eh
."(In the past, you can do that, right? When I was still with Air21, during the time of Dorian [Pena], we're calling them gorilla. But that's nothing, we're just trying to get under their skin because they're good.)Arwind Santos was caught on camera making a monkey gesture towards Terrence Jones in the first half of San Miguel's 99-94 win over TNT in Game 5 of the PBA Commissioner's Cup finals.

How desperate and low will you go for a win arwindsotnas tsk tsk tsk. Says a lot ant your character Ganyan ba turo sayo pag di mo ma pantayan ang galing sa pag lalaro daanin mo nalng sa pang bully? Sabay uwi sa bahay 🤔 Somebody teach Terrence Jones the word 'Kupal' so he could use it on arwindsantos3 head.
PBA Commissioner Marcial should call the attention of Arwind Santos. This shouldn't be tolerated. You may be a good athlete but your attitude is far more worst than his colour. Mindset? More of pang iinsulto yan. What Arwind Santos did was racist. There is no excuse for that. Racism has no place in sports. That Santos refuses to apologize only demonstrates his lack of professionalism and shallow sense of humanity. He may be a good athlete but not a very good human being.
Poor way of getting into a man’s head 👎🏻 Suspidihin yan😁 Yeah, he's an effing racist and ignorant. No excuses needed. oa sa mind game. 🤨
