I told you once how impressed I was at Chris Tiu’s blog, even referring to it as ‘the best read on the Internet’. He’s delivered today once again, with a recount as to the Smart – Gilas‘ adventures at the recently concluded FIBA-Asia Champions Club held at Jakarta. Some choice cuts:
Maybe before the tournament began, we would be satisfied to clinch 5th spot. But after actually competing against those colossal and experienced national players, 5th place was actually a disappointment for me, personally.
