4 Reasons Why Filipino Basketball Remains Standing in the Global Arena?

Gilas Pilipinas Singing the Philippine National Anthem

We Filipinos admit we aren't the best in the basketball world but still, our game soars high and threatens any team we face. How do the Gilas Pilipinas Squad withstand all the hardships and challenges they encounter in their path?

Despite being an underdog in terms of global basketball, Gilas Pilipinas shone exceptionally even against the mightiest of the teams they've ever fought.

Here are some of Gilas' characteristics every basketball fan would love if they happen to watch one Gilas game.


1. Small but terrible

If there's one thing that makes as an extreme underdog, it would be our size of course. It is so ridiculous that some of the team's point guards are as big as our forward players. I mean, how much more are the center players? It seems that when they play zone defense, it would be a lights out for the one who holds the ball. The vision is completely blocked.

But not really.

We may not beat them with size and strength but we could outwit them with quickness -- a great weapon relative to guys bigger than you.


2. Asian Domination

In the biggest continent there is in the world, there lies a tiny country where we all reside. But who could ever imagine that this tiny country with tiny people could be the king of Asian basketball?

We can claim it, we are always on top whenever there are continental basketball events.

If not the champion, we would always stick on top with Iran and China. These two are the biggest of teams there is in Asia but they aren't unbeatable because we have the quickness to make their super sizes work against them.


3. Asia's best point guard in the house

We all know the blur Jayson Castro is the finest point guard in Asia. Having the top guard within the team is like having the best team because we have the greatest playmaker.

It's not just playmaking but Castro could score humongous all by himself. Jayson Castro's one of the main gunners of Gilas. He's the core and people love him blur out with his extraordinary stopping and sudden accelerating pace.


4. Rising Superstar

Philippine Basketball was long lost on the global stage but it made a comeback a few years ago. As a result, it would be all eyes on them and Gilas would surely not be ashamed to show off before these eyes with numerous questions and expectations.

We're long gone, we come back, and we are here for redemption and domination.
