    Chris Tiu Will Not Join The PBA Draft 2011: Read His Official Statement Here

    After several months of waiting, the 5'11 guard of the Smart Gilas Pilipinas has finally made an official announcement saying that he will not join the PBA Draft 2011. Unlike his other teammates in Gilas such as Dylan Ababou, Jayvee Casio, Mark Barroca, and Jason Ballesteros who all passed their PBA Draft applications, Chris Tiu decided not to pass his application earlier today to beat the deadline. Instead of accomplishing the draft requirements, he made an official announcement. Much like a press conference saying that he will not turn pro. Here's his official statement.
    "After much prayer and consultation with family and friends, I have decided not to take part in the PBA draft this year. My dream has always been to represent our flag and country by competing in the various international tournaments. Should management wish to invite me, it would be my privilege to continue on with the Gilas national team program. Thank you for the support."

    I'm sure some of the basketball fans will not be able to appreciate his official statement because they want to see Chris play in the PBA. The best thing that we can do for Chris right now is for us to just respect his decision and let's just support him all the way no matter what.

    Hey Mack,

    If you have nothing better to say, then I suggest you just keep it to yourself. Why don't you go read other articles online to see if what you're saying is true. We're blessed to have a captain who would rather play for country than in the professional league.

    Limelight player kase si JV. Si Chris naman all arpound. He can humbly step aside and let the others score or he can jack it up and score if he wants too. That's what separates him from other players. Last time I checked, only Francis Arnaiz and Jojo Lastimosa has such mentality. and both guys have undeniably successful careers in the PBA.

    Pa-cute lang yan si Tiu, pinagmamalaki nya na mayaman sila kaya di nya kailangan ang PBA, nabulungan lang yan ni Pangilinan kasi nga hindi sila ang 1st pick ngayon, puro yabang lang yan, aminan nya nalang na panis siya kay Casio at kay Paul Lee, Kahit siya pa ang makuhang 1st pick. Para siyang si Maywether! Pati flag ng Pinas ginagamit nya, oo maganda maglaro para sa Pinas, pero sobra na ginagawa nyang Pa-cute at yabang, aminin na nya na kaya siya nagbabasketball eh para may mapatunayan sa larangan nito, kaya wag nyang ipagmamalaki na mayaman siya kaya di na nya kailangan mag-PBA!
