    This win should be a huge morale booster for our very own Smart Gilas team to keep on improving their game up to and past respectability by FIBA International standards. Keep up the good work, guys! Basta huwag niyo lang pansinin ang mga may crab mentality na humihila sa inyo pababa at gawin niyo lang nang maayos ang trabaho niyo para sa ating Inang Bayan. Mabuti pa nga tayo’t may international team tayo na maipagmamalaki, unlike many of our Asian neighbors who could only dream of having at least a team of our own caliber to be proud of.

    Sino mga kalaban nila dito? Smart Gilas considered national team ng Pinas. Mga national team ba kalaban nila sa HK o mga barangay team?
