The Name Game

So we don’t call them Gilas any more? 😮 Are we also ditching the battlecry “Laban Pilipinas”? And “Puso” in lieu of “Utak” this time? And collectively call our Men's Basketball Team simply, "Team Pilipinas"?

What's wrong using the Gilas monicker?

Make it happen. Are we finally back to it?

It's cringeworthy every time a nation talks about it.

Never again. Hey wait, let's turn to the next paragraph before we start hitting the streets or hiding in the mountains once again.

Here's another shot at hosting the #FIBAWC. Can we finally nail this one? Of course we're teaming with Japan and Indonesia this time around—so this sounds really very exciting. This side of Asia will definitely create a great vibe in the region and the whole wide world.

Gilas Meets Universe

It’s the season once again. Nope, sorry Christmas. It’s not YET you that we’re talking about here.

Gilas season is upon us. Woops, BUT—not so fast.

Kayoed Before the Opening Bell?

(Updated as of 112117, 09:52H)

Not too long ago we heard and were excited about a new grassroots development league launching. And a country mad about hoops didn't think twice welcoming this exciting idea. We were even more surprised (or not at all) that the league's acronym begins with the initials "MP"—reminding us of one legendary boxing great (who by the way was a PBA playing-coach—yes—believe it or not, this is a fuc—uhmFACT 😱 and not some fakenewsery). And then add the customary kicker "BL" for Basketball League. And it's good to go.

Well, you know who we're talking about, right? 😜

It's crippling. Yeah, sorry for desecrating the PBA logo. But this is just how the PBA pictures itself right about now.

The issue is just so pressing and went out of the roof. And it seems it isn't moving forward just yet. 😩

The Korean Course

It’s not learning how to say “annyeonghaseyo”. Neither a lesson on Korean geography, history and Koreanovela. By far this is the most difficult course we got to take. And we failed miserably. It was an F, or a 5 or 70% when passing should be 75—however you may want to measure it.

Sakay Na!

No disrespect to the Filipino hero-general. But perhaps his courage, resilience and more importantlyhis long hair reminds us a lot about someone sporting a shampoo commercial-worthy hair style in the FIBA Asia Cup 2017 Gilas roster.

Tatak Standard, Tibay Standhardinger

Tapos na Jones Cup 2017 at masaya tayo’t buhay na uli ang pambansang koponan (at siyempre ilang kembot nalang #FIBAAsiaCup2017 na rin).

Pero may nagtanong, “Pare, sino ba yung bagong Fil-Am dun sa Gilas?”
