Just saw this great pic on SI.com. The Philippines had their own set of major storms recently, but obviously it didn't put a halt to hooping. Is their a more basketball crazy country than the Philippines. A few observations: The kid on the left in the green shirt needs a Grand Theft Rondo tee, the kid with the blue shirt should change that name to Garnett, and the kid under the hoop totally is busting the Jeff Green "I'm Lost" face.

    I'm proud to be a filipino celtic fan. To give you a backgroud..the Philippines participated in the 1954 FIBA World Championship held at Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The Philippines finished with a 5-2 win-loss record in the Final Round games, and captured the bronze medal. The third place-finish is still currently the best finish by an Asian country in the World Championships.Until Today no country in Asia got medals in the world championship. Only the Philippines.

  7. Awesome pic JR. more storms to come here. let the storms bring it, we'll still be playing hoops here ;) ... basketball will find a way.

    Indeed we do. I suggest reading Pacific Rims by Rafe Bartholomew, what Jeneiel said is absolutely true, where else can you see in a stretch of less than a kilometer there are two separate halfcourts and one fullcourt, and the Rec. center is a 5 minute walk. Basketball isn't just a game anymore, it's passion, it's life.

    I am a diehard Celtics fan in the Philippines, having lived in boston in the mid-90s and I can tell you Filipinos are the most basketball crazy people in the world. Too bad the average Filipino male's height is 5 ft. 4 inches.....
