#WWYW looks back at the most iconic moments in Philippine basketball history. As Gilas sets to make history again, we go back and remember the times they made the world stop spinning for a second, maybe more. We re-tell these stories, with the assistance of the guys who did it, who saw it, who were there.
For this episode, we go back to Spain in the 2014. Gilas was back in the world stage, going up against the best countries they could only dream of facing before. When they got there, they didn’t back down. Gilas was ready to fight. They pushed Croatia to the limit and LA went head to head with a Greek player almost twice his size. Who could forget Gabe’s epic posterization of Luis Scola? Gilas took on the best in the world had to offer and walked away earning their respect.
