PBA: In Support of our National TeamTweet
It's Independence Day and what better way to celebrate our country's momentous celebration than to give honor and support to our Gilas Pilipinas national team and the PBA.
Through their strong partnership, our national team now boasts a deeper lineup that can bring the fight against our more accomplished counterparts in the upcoming FIBA World Cup, which will happen on August 31, 2019 in China.
Coach Yeng Guiao will have his hands full in trying to pick the suitable players who will suit up and represent our flag - from our top PBA players to our naturalized reinforcement in Andray Blatche.
Gilas Pilipinas is set to embark on a journey that will have them go against some of the best teams in the world as they are slated to face powerhouse teams in Italy, Serbia, and Angola in Group D of the said tournament.
In commemoration of Independence Day, We Filipinos should celebrate and support all our local heroes who have been dedicating their lives for the greater good of our nation.
With the Philippines known as one of the world's basketball-crazy countries, expect our fans to cheer their hearts out and show their patriotism by continuously supporting Gilas Pilipinas and the PBA.
