Hindi natin maipagmamalaki ang nangyari. Pero hindi rin ako papayag na ma-bully tayo ng ibang bansa. I have been in these situations before.

Many countries try to bully each other during international games. Whoever blinks first loses his pride and dignity for the rest of his basketball life.

We all have to do some soul-searching. Let us see how events unfold in the coming days.

Officials of FIBA will certainly take notice of this. SBP officials must have a heart-to-heart talk with the Gilas Team.

I will always stand behind our players.
