Gilas is holed up at the Inspire Sports Academy as it gears up for the regional meet.
Gilas Pilipinas hit a couple of speed bumps on the road to the Asian Games in Hangzhou, China.
Lineup woes marred the national team gearing up for the regional meet, that’s why the Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas resorted to Plan B in the hopes of forming the best possible team.
But the players seemed unperturbed. Proof? Check out this video posted by six-time PBA MVP June Mar Fajardo.
“Daaagguummm BigMo!😂🌊" Fajardo wrote for a caption, which seems apt given the impact of Mo Tautuaa's pool splash. Or was it just magnified by June Mar's editing skills?
"Grow up you two,” Chris Ross, who was also called to serve the national team, gleefully responded on the video of his San Miguel Beermen teammates.
Tautuaa, on the other hand, knew he had to ride what Fajardo started.
“Magnitude 7.0!” The 6-foot-8 big man, who is likely out of the lineup along with four others, said in the comment section of the video posted on Wednesday.
In order to catch up with the preparations for the tournament, Gilas is holed up at the Inspire Sports Academy in Laguna where the team is getting into some pool work.
