Gilas Pilipinas made headlines last night after getting into a brawl with the national team of Australia in a basketball game at the Philippine Arena in Bulacan.
KAMI learned that one of the Gilas players, Terrence Romeo, took to Twitter to slam his fellow Pinoy basketball players who felt embarrassed by the all-out brawl.
Many netizens who posted in the comments section of Fashion Pulis bashed the Gilas player for his viral tweets:
“Awwww nahiya kpa. Sana tinag mo na si Jimmy Alapag. Oo kayo nga pinatatamaan nya sa tweet nya!”
“What a mindset! Shame on you!!!”
“Bakit nasa kalye ka ba naglalaro? Pag may na-agrabyado resbakan na lang ganon? PROFESSIONAL athlete ka kung ganyan mindset mo wag kang sumali sa international leagues tulad ng FIBA na may malinaw na patakaran sa ganyan.”
“eh sa nakakahiya naman talaga..kahit sino pa yang nagpasimuno.. pinagtulungan nyo pa rin yung isang Australian player, sumabay pa yung mga nambato..porket nasa homecourt kau?”
“kaloka c romeo, pwedemo tulungan teammate mo sa pag awat, hindi ung makisuntok ka rin. look at fajardo, nas loob sya ng court umawat sya hindi nakirumble”
“Akala mo yata nasa kalye ka lang naglalaro ng basketball. Dapat magpakita kayo ng magandang halimbawa lalo na sa mga bata.”
The brawl occurred during the third quarter of the game, when Australia was leading by 31 points.
When Australia’s Daniel Kickert had a physical altercation with Roger Pogoy, the other Gilas players tried to defend their teammate.
There are speculations that the Gilas team might be suspended by FIBA due to the unfortunate incident.
