The Gilas Pilipinas national team is now in France for the 2014 Antibes International Basketball Tournament held in Antibes, France. As you all know, in their opening game, Gilas went up against the FIBA Euro champions, Team France.
NBA champions namely, Tony Parker, Boris Diaw and Nando de Colo, together with Nicolas Batum, Joakim Noah, Ian Mahinmi, Ronnie Turiaf, Rudy Gobert, Mikel Gelable and other notable NBA veterans are all in France’s roster. However, in this tournament, Parker, Noah and Turiaf are seating out to prepare their bodies for the World Cup grind. Still, Batum, Diaw, Mahinmi, de Colo, Gobert, Gelable are all NBA veterans that could dominate Gilas in their game.
Gilas proved them wrong.
