Presidential Adviser for Political Affairs Francis Tolentino, in his Abante column, said he is confident the “Gilastopainters”, the new Gilas Pilipinas team composed of core members of the Rain or Shine PBA team, will do well in the upcoming Asian Games in Jakarta, Indonesia.

This despite the less than two weeks of preparation time for the hastily formed basketball team.

Tolentino cites a popular Filipino basketball mantra for his confidence: “Bilog ang bola” or the ball is always round.

“Walang sinuman ang makapagtuturan ng magiging kapalaran ng ating pambansang koponan sa Asian Games,” he said.

“Subalit bitbit ang pag-asa at bunsod ng layunin na makapagbigay karangalan sa bansa at sa samba­yanang Filipino, lubos ang aking tiwala na makakamit ng isang bagong Gilas Pilipinas ang tagumpay sa ­Indonesia,” Tolentino added.
