Blatche angay unta papahuwayon: Reyes

-A A +A

Monday, September 1, 2014


DIHANG nianinaw na ang kadaugan sa Greece batok sa Gilas Pilipinas sa hinapos nga bahin kagahapon sa 2014 FIBA World Cup sa Seville, Spain, wala seguro’y makamahay kang Gilas coach Chot Reyes kon iya pang gipapahuway og sayo ang uban niyang mga sinaligan, partikyular si naturalized Andray Blatche, isip preparasyon sa sunod nilang tahas batok sa Argentina.

Apan matod ni Reyes nga wala siya nakahimo niini gumikan kay supak kini sa kinaiya sa Gilas nga mokombati’g maayo hangtod sa katapusang gutlo.

“I kept asking my players, looking in their eyes and even in the last four minutes, last five minutes, we were down 12 or 13, my players were saying, ‘Last push, last push,’ including Andray,” matod ni Reyes sa interbyu sa Spin.ph.

“That’s just the kind of spirit they have. The spirit we have and the way we play the game will not allow us to slacken off.”

Nasayod si Reyes nga dili layo ang posibilidad nga maigo sa fatigue ang uban niyang mga sinaligan sa sunod nilang duwa apan andam niya kining dawaton aron lang dili makasupak sa kinaiya nga iyang gitanom ngadto sa Gilas.

“That might be a foolish thing, (but) that’s who we are. From the start, we were foolish enough to dream that we could compete with these teams, just be foolish all the way,” pasabot ni Reyes.

Giangkon ni Reyes nga ilang gikonsiderar nga dili kaayo nila haguon ang ilang mga sinaligan batok sa Greece sa pagtuo nga wala gyud sila’y dag-anan batok sa world no.5 nga puwersa.

“To be very honest, we were thinking of just really playing a 2-3 zone this whole game and putting up token resistance but in all conscience we couldn’t do it, not with all these fans here,” pagtino ni Reyes.

“We wanted to find a way, basically to preserve minutes and guys for Argentina tomorrow. We talked about it, I thought about it long and hard. But in the end, I don’t think I can live with myself if I did that.”
