O-M-G!!! Andray Blatche is now officially a Filipino!

Earlier today, President Aquino has signed into law the measure conferring citizenship on the Brooklyn Nets center, which would allow him to suit up for Gilas Pilipinas just in time for the FIBA World Cup this August and the Asian Games tournament in September. You know what this means? We now have a fighting chance at winning this thing!

To help spread the good news, Andray's camp held a press conference at the Smart Araneta Coliseum last night, and we were one of the many media outlets present during the event. You'll love Andray - he's a gentle giant who has a response to every question thrown at him. Don't expect the most satisfying answers though; let's just say he prefers to have his game do all the talking.

Scroll down to know what Andray said during the press conference!

ON ESTABLISHING A BOND WITH HIS NEW TEAMMATES:

What he actually said:
"I met them at lunch, and we talked about basketball. It's like we're on the same page. It's to go out there, get together, and win. And I could tell with our conversation that we're on the same page, our vibe's clicking, and they welcomed me with open arms."

What he actually said:
"I was able to watch a couple of minutes. The other guys know each other on different teams, but there's this one kid, I don't know his last name but I think his name is Chris [he's pertaining to Rain or Shine Elasto Painters guard Chris Tiu]. He's been super aggressive out there and I can tell what kind of basketball it is."


ON CREATING CHEMISTRY WITH THE BOYS:
