    Message ko lang kay Johhny Custodio, wag kana magsalita kung wala ka naman na accomplished sa basketball. Give credit to our team na lang na nakapasok tayo sa World Cup. Coaching staff is the main reason bakit naging successful ang game ng Gilas. If we do the euro league or american style for sure tambak tayo. What the coaches did is they created their own style never before seen. Kaya nga lahat ng coach sa FIBA all praise satin and said Gilas is the hardest to scout. We dont call plays kaya pero effective yung system.
