19,919 spectators were not disappointed with the flight. After Lebanon’s setback, Chot Reyes’ players were eager to redeem themselves in their home international match against Saudi Arabia, and Jordan Clarkson was the main attraction.
The jazz star did more than respond as he quickly lit the SM Mall of Asia Arena with his first 3-point long-range rocket from the very first moments of the game before putting the crowd in the pocket.
Voluntarily and provided during a win without appeal for his team (84-46), Jordan Clarkson (23 points, 5 rebounds, 6 assists) enjoyed his successful comeback after four years of absence.
“For us as a team, we have gotten to know each other over the past few weeks. I have to have five sessions of training in my legs, just trying to integrate into the team quickly, so that we are ready for the World Cup next year.Said the person concerned. “We were able to build cohesion in Beirut and then come back here. We all had a great time away from the cameras. Our team is totally free, and we have a great time training. We know when to focus and be serious. But everyone is free and having fun.”
The former sixth best man in the NBA has also opened up about the well-deserved atmosphere in the NBA and the support he has in his mother’s home country.
“That’s fine. I still hear them, even when I’m on the other side of the globe. I hear them on the internet and social networks and every time I leave my house…I know Filipinos support me and I do the same.”
‘We’re at the beginning of something’
En parfait leader de la sélection, Jordan Clarkson donne aussi l’exemple en s’impliquant à fond, également en dehors du terrain pour la plus grande satisfaction du sélectionneur qui dispose là d’un élément de base pour accompagner la montée en puissance Equipped.
“What we value with him, no matter what you see on the ground, is his work ethic. Behind the scenes, he always arrives early, never late, and never misses a video session. In fact, there is a clause in his contract that prevents him from training more than twice a day, But he was still around on the days we trained twice. I think he’s really important for our team.”Shot Reyes slipped.
The countdown has already begun for the Philippines less than a year after the start of the World Cup, which was partly organized on its territory. Now is the time to unite the entire archipelago, whose passion for basketball can sometimes overflow.
“We are at the beginning of something. Support us, support our team. We are building something unique, so let’s get started.”Jordan Clarkson concluded.
