Marc Pingris changes mind in joining Gilas


Here’s the official statement from Marc Pingris:
“Despite my earlier pronouncement not to join and give others a chance to play for the country, Purefoods management has asked me to reconsider my decision… I talked to my wife and we agreed. In the end, it was pride and honor in representing the Philippines that prevailed over me. I am grateful for management’s support and if the Philippine team still needs me, I promise to go all out for the country in the Fiba-Asia Championship as it aims to gain a slot in the Rio Olympics next year.”
