    pinadama lang ng Iran ang Pinas nung una. pinasakay lang kumbaga.
    ayos lang, champion naman(Iran) yung tumalo sa pinas eh. hehehe…
    kaya lang, kitang-kita talaga na outclassed ang pinas pagdating sa mga
    malalaking kalaban. yun na lang sa south korea eh, di nila kayang
    pigilan si Ha… hahahaha!!! kailangan talagang magdevelop ng mga
    bigman ang pinas para maging competitive sa international basketballl.
