After heated finals, things are ‘cool’ between Semerad twins

All is fair in love and war, and being twins is no exception.

Semerad twins David and Anthony found themselves on opposing sides when San Miguel battled TNT in the 2017 PBA Commissioner’s Cup Finals, and even had brushes defending each other in the short minutes they played on the floor.

Things came to a head in Game 6 on Sunday, with the Beermen looking for the kill and the KaTropa desperate to force a Game 7.

At the 5:43 mark of the first quarter, the Fil-Aussie brothers battled for a jumpball, which the younger Anthony won, but it came at an expense as David got elbowed on the nose.

“I didn’t actually know I broke his nose,” said Anthony, who has emerged as a reliable sniper for TNT after coming from a midseason trade this past conference. “We were just going at it, going hard. Then after the jumpball, I went to sprint and he likes to stick to me like glue. I guess he was just so close to me when I did the run, I accidentally hit him. It was really unlucky and I didn’t even know I hit him.”

David, who was seldom used in the San Miguel front but has proven himself as a wide-bodied banger when needed, understood that things like that happen.
