Team Pilipinas might be facing the daunting task of beating Iran on the road tomorrow, but at least one of them is hyped up about the Fiba Basketball World Cup Asian qualifier.
In a video shared by national team guard Paul Lee on Instagram, head coach Yeng Guiao is seen doing his best Vince Carter impression and pulling off a reverse dunk on a lowered rim during what looks like a practice session.
You have got to watch it to believe it:
Okay, we see you, Coach Yeng.
Granted, the basketball hoop isn't regulation height, but anytime a 59-year-old does something like this is quite impressive at the same time pure comedy gold. Not to mention that the NLEX Road Warriors tactician was out of his usual fiery demeanor and even seemed to have broken into a smile after realizing what he just did.
PBA players Chris Ross, Jio Jalalon, and Matthew Wright joined WAGs like Rubie Lee and Lei Norwood in showering the post with LOL emojis. CYG's former and current wards like Jeric Teng, Don Trollano (Rain or Shine Elasto Painters), and Kevin Alas (NLEX) can't help but be amused by their mentor.
Colorful play-by-play commentator Magoo Marjon, as well as sports correspondent Apple David, also commented on the now trending clip—we wonder how he would have described Guiao's jam during a live broadcast.
It appears that The (temporary) exodus of Chot Reyes not only paved the way for a new system but also gave birth to Air Guiao.
