Congratulations, Gilas. For almost 10 years I've believe Philippine basketball was special, and this week you all proved it. Thank you.
I think Gilas already answered the big question: They're going to make the Philippines very proud, no matter what result.
If close loss to France showed how far Gilas has come, then getting outplayed by NZ is a reminder of how far there still is to go. #puso
Consecutive silvers is a huge turnaround from 10 years ago, suspended by FIBA. Congrats to SBP and Gilas Pilipinas. You make millions proud.
But once again, they played their asses off, competed with NBA champions and a future hall-of-famer, and made the nation proud. Saludo!
