Philippines has a long story of love affair with basketball. if you’d visit the country, don’t be surprised to see makeshift basketball courts in every corner. before Manny Pacquiao, it was (and still is) basketball as the number one sport in the Philippines.
guess the world is now realizing how passionate PINOYs are with the staging of 27th Fiba Asia Championship in Manila. every game was full packed and the Gilas Pilipinas team just made it sweeter as they booked a ticket for a semis match against arch-rival South Korea.
the sokors have been known as our heart-breakers beating us (in close matches) in the past tournaments. it’s time we get even and defend our home. a win will ensure the team a ticket to Spain for the Fiba World Basketball championships.
