Get to know Jayson Castro of the Gilas Pilipinas national men's basketball team.

Appropriately nicknamed “The Blur”, Jayson Castro is the fastest man on the Gilas roster.

The 2013 PBA Philippine Cup Best Player of the Conference is built for the dribble-drive offense implemented by Coach Chot Reyes and has the ability to blow by defenders to get to the rim, where he can finish strong or drop the ball off to the bigs for an easy basket.

The 28-year-old Pampanga, Philippines native was drafted third by the Talk ‘N Text Tropang Texters in 2008 and was the PBA scoring champion for the 2013-14 season. At the FIBA Asia Championship in 2013, Castro was named to the FIBA Mythical Team after leading Gilas to a silver medal finish.

Castro has consistently raised his scoring averages year after year in the PBA and his ability to create shots will be key for Gilas Pilipinas. –
