Gilas Last Home Stand, ANYARE!?
What was supposed to be a dream-come-true event ended up as a nightmare after Kawhi Leonard, Damian Lillard, and the rest of Fibr All-Stars backed out of their supposed five-on-five exhibition game with Gilas Pilipinas due to an unforeseen technicality with their mother league, the NBA.
So what the hell happened? We took to Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and YouTube exactly 24 hours after to help explain the brouhaha. Read on!
Nobody saw this thing coming, not even us. But please don't get mad at the NBA players, because we can totally tell that they were ready to throw it down during the press conference.
Every hoops junkie with a ticket pretty much tweeted the same thing as game day approached.
Even the Teng siblings couldn't contain their excitement!
But alas, we should have known something was wrong when Blake Griffin and Paul George pulled out on the day of the event.
Still, the show must go on, right? Many of the people who watched last night reportedly skipped work and took on the raging traffic just to make it on time. They didn't want to miss anything! Turns out there was nothing to see, but they didn't know that at the time.
Even Kapuso cutie pie Bea Binene joined in on the supposed fun! You know you're in for a must-see basketball game when even your girlfriend wants to watch.
