Here's Why Scottie Thompson Begs Off From Gilas Pool For The 2019 FIBA World Cup (VIDEO)

According to an article by Matthew Li of Tie Breaker Times, Philippine national men's basketball team head coach Yeng Guiao revealed that Ginebra star Scottie Thompson politely begs off from Gilas Pilipinas pool for the 2019 FIBA World Cup.


“Siguro pwede na nating sabihin na Scottie talked to me noong nasa Batangas kami. He’s also begging off, I appreciate his honesty. I appreciate his talking to me.,"

“He feels he’s not ready to compete internationally. It is his belief… Mayroon siyang paniwala na mayroon pang ibang pwedeng makakuha ng slot niya na who can perform that role.”

“Maybe that’s another slot we’re going to fill up. I can appreciate his position. Ang sinasabi niya na he needs to develop his game; he needs to mature his game in order to play at the standards of the international level,”

“Gusto niyang magpagaling daw, yung i-improve pa yung skills niya. And magbabalik siya sa Gilas kung iimbitahin siya ulit."

“That’s what I appreciate – just being straightforward, honest; just being humble to accept that there is somebody out there who can perform better. And he will try to improve himself so he can get back to the national team," - Guiao told Matthew Li of Tie Breaker Times.
