Gilas shoot around cuts short; faces another issue on decal matters
Team Pilipinas seem to attract bad luck during pre-games at FIBA.
The national team was forced to shortened their morning shootaround by 45 minutes after the workers decided to apply the FIBA-approved decals on the court floorings of Azadi Basketball Hall in Iran for 15 minutes.
This is also the venue that Gilas will take on Iran this Thursday for the fourth window of the 2019 FIBA World Cup Asian Qualifiers.
Although Gilas does not have any major problem regarding the slight inconvenience that affected their light training, some public figures took on Twitter to notice the “decal issues’ that Gilas have encountered once again.

This issue about decals all started when the Australians were caught removing the FIBA-approved labels, which caused a huge controversy.
