Another problem has besieged the Smart Gilas Pilipinas Team as they try to prepare for the upcoming FIBA Asia Championship 2013 here in the Philippines on August.
They are currently preparing to defend their Jones Cup Title until a bad news broke out. It seems that the Gilas Team has been caught in the on going tension between the Philippine Government and Taiwan that stemmed out from the fisherman slay.
"Just got word from d organizers that we have been un-invited to d Jones Cup. Di matapos-tapos ang problema ng Gilas ha," said Coach Chot Reyes via Twitter.
"We now have to find a replacement tournament as d Jones Cup is such an integral part of our preparation," added Coach Chot.
