3. On the Philippine basketball scene, the recent move of the Philippine Basketball Association (PBA) and the Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas to release 17 players to the national pool is welcomed as a manifestation of their total and unequivocal support to the national team as it prepares itself to the Olympic World Qualifier which will be held in July next year. These are some of the big names coming from their respective clubs and for allowing these players to join the national pool, they are sacrificing their own team interests. - Source- www.philstar.com
