The final 12 man team line-up of the Smart Gilas Pilipinas Team is out and sadly, one player has to be cut from the team due to a grave reason- the July 12 deadline for Final Team Rosters.
I feel bad for the 6'6 behemoth Beau Belga of the Rain or Shine Elasto Painters who was cut from the Line-Up. But that's life. Sometimes you have to give way to others. Good thing he didn't feel bad when Coach Chot told him that he got cut.
"@coachot salamat coach.. Thank you din sa pagtitiwala," said Beau via his Twitter Account.
And so, without further ado here's the final team line-up of the Smart Gilas Pilipinas National Team that will represent our country in the upcoming FIBA Asia Championship 2013 on August 1-11, 2013 at the SM Mall of Asia Arena.
