Philippine Team (Smart Gilas) vs Lebanon (Anibal) - 22nd Dubai Basketball Tournament

If you will visit Philippines, you might think that basketball is our national sports. You would actually see basketball courts in every street (seriously). People usually close the small streets (which we call kanto) with used tires or benches so that vehicles cannot pass and people can use the space to play. 

A couple of hours ago, we watched the Philippine team (Smart Gilas) win vs the Lebanese team (Anibal) at the Dubai Basketball Tournament. The Al Ahli Club Gym where they played was packed with Filipino supporters. This just truly means that basketball is something that Filipinos have in common. Be it in the Philippines or anywhere else. Hoping for another great game tomorrow. Goodluck :)
