SBP President proud of Gilas Pilipinas’ journey
Gilas Pilipinas has been receiving a lot of love and support from their fellow Pinoy fans lately due to their valiant effort, and even their boss acknowledged their hard work and dedication to represent the country.
SBP President Al Panlilio expressed how proud he is for the national team after everything they went through – from deliberately assigning replacements for the suspended Gilas players, withdrawing from the 2018 Asian Games and rescinding their withdrawal a few weeks later, and getting the approval of NBA guard Jordan Clarkson.
“Am so proud of where we are now especially after the journey we went through,” said Panlilio.

Gilas has been impressive in the Asian Games so far, as they defeated Kazakhstan in their first game and almost stealing a win against powerhouse China by a couple of points.
