It was a short yet fruitful FIBA 3x3 World Cup campaign for Kobe Paras, Kiefer Ravena, Jeron Teng, and JR Quiñahan of Team Philippines.

The country's representatives bowed out of contention after losing two matches in a row—to host team France then Slovenia—that prevented them from advancing into the quarterfinal round.

If there is anything that the Pinoys got out of playing at an international level, it was the chance to showcase what our basketball-loving nation is made of. These noteworthy plays from our local ballers are enough to make a special Team PH FIBA 3x3 highlight reel:

Are you sure it's Kobe Paras, not Bryant, with the sweet behind-the-back move?

No wonder he was named Player of the Day after delivering in the clutch during their first-game win against Romania...

Kobe's luck would run out, though, as he was unable to reclaim the dunk title (2013, 2015) versus a cast of pro jumpers.

We're not sure if Ravena's 'wedgie' is considered a highlight, but FIBA 3x3 did call it 'the most difficult shot in the game.'

Team PH may have been eliminated following its defeat to Slovenia, but that didn't stop Kobe from flashing his wares.

Benjie, is that you?

Paras, Ravena, Teng, and Quiñahan cruised to victory over El Salvador and finished the tournament with a 2-2 win-loss record.
