I'd be honest that I didn't start watching their FIBA games. I got interested when it's their turn to face the South Korea team and that's the first and last that I was able to watch the Philippine team compete. I know that it's late on my part to appreciate the FIBA games but nonetheless I was mighty proud watching them on our television together with my whole family. Too bad I missed the championship game while I was out with my friends.
Having won the 2nd place in FIBA, they are now qualified to compete in FIBA World Cup in Spain! Woohoo! It's definitely a whole new level of basketball and definitely not to be miss. Pau Gasol was kind and gracious to congratulate the Philippine team and welcome them for next year:
