Gilas team captain Jayson Castro said that the brawl does not reflect on him as a person and that he wants to be a better example for young kids.
Former Gilas player Marc Pingris also apologized for the infamous selfie that he took after the brawl.
The past few days have been extremely difficult for us at GILAS. Each player & coach who got involved in the incident has apologized, and as Head Coach, so have I. Again, to those we have offended, we are sorry. To those who have stood by us, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Our prayer is that we come out better and stronger from this as we affirm that it is our honor to fight for our country til we can’t fight anymore, with all our hearts. Laban. Pilipinas. Puso #???❤️
Gilas Pilipinas head coach Chot Reyes hopes that team will come back stronger and better after the regretful incident.
