Many ordinary Filipino netizens have already reacted on social media about the all-out brawl between Gilas Pilipinas and the Australian Boomers last night at the Philippine Arena in Bulacan.
The reactions were mixed, some were embarrassed by the behavior of the Gilas players while others think that brawling with the Australians was justified due to the latter’s taunting throughout the basketball game.
