IN PHOTOS: Gilas Pilipinas in wacky mood at FIBA photo shoot
MANILA, Philippines - Gilas Pilipinas may have a serious task ahead of them, but that isn't stopping them from having fun at their FIBA photo shoot in Changsha, China.
From Dondon Hontiveros' cell phone jump shot, to Sonny Thoss' new alternate jersey and the ever-present smile of Calvin Abueva, the Philippine national team has brought a relaxed mindset as they approach Group B of the FIBA Asia Championship.
The gold medal winner will be guaranteed a spot at the 2016 Olympics in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil. With much at stake, Gilas will have to turn their smiles to game faces as they approach Palestine, Hong Kong and Kuwait in the next few days.
