Build your Gilas Pilipinas dream team
MANILA, Philippines (UPDATED) – Have you ever wanted to have a say on which guards, centers or forwards should make it to the final 12-man Gilas Pilipinas team?
Here's your chance.
Let your voice be heard, and, like a head coach, put together your own Gilas Pilipinas dream team.
Below is the complete national men's basketball team pool, updated to reflect the full 24-man line-up the Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas (SBP) announced on Tuesday, August 25.
From the pool, build your own final Gilas line-up by clicking the player to "like" and share the photos of 12 players you wish to have on your dream team.
Rappler will tally the votes and the 12 players with the most "likes" will make the fan-selected Gilas Pilipinas dream team. We will count not only the "likes" but the number of shares as well.
You'd notice that we included in the pool the players that have begged off or have been sidelined due to injury. This is because what we want to build is a dream team based on the entire pool, assuming all players are healthy and available. But feel free to stay realistic and select only players that are available.
We have, however, removed Kelly Williams from the options to reflect the final 24-man roster the SBP sent to FIBA or the International Basketball Federation.
Share with us your choices in the comments below and explain why you picked that particular line-up.
