Max's officially partners with Smart Gilas





We are just three months away before our beloved Smart Gilas goes to Spain to compete for a spot in the 2014 FIBA World Cup.  Because of that, Max's Restaurant has launched a social media campaign to support the national team.  Fans can use the #pusotothemax when posting about Smart Gilas on their social media accounts.




Me and other bloggers were actually surprised by Max's that we were going to meet the Smart Gilas team.  The other bloggers thought that it was Coco Martin or Bruno Mars but it turned out to be the best national team ever assembled according to coach Chot Reyes.  It was a big meet up as Max's branch managers and staff were also on hand to meet them and take pictures with the players.





We watched the beginning of the practice of Smart Gilas and the players started off by launching a bunch of half court shots.  Former Ateneo standout Larry Fonacier nailed a bunch of them.  It was like they were playing a game of H-O-R-S-E.





They proceeded to do some shooting drills and we were also treated to some rim rattling stuffs courtesy of 6'9 Japeth Aguilar.  Its been a long time since I saw some professional basketball players in person so I have to give credit to Max's for the nice surprise.  Basketball fans actually have a chance to watch the Smart Gilas games live in Madrid when they post the #pusotothemax on their Facebook, Twitter and Instagram posts.





It did not take long before I challenged 6'10 June Mar Fajardo for a short game of one on one.  I don't know what I was thinking when I decided to try my luck in street clothes.  I told him that the next guy to score wins the game though so I would not have to sweat much.  He decided to post me up then as I was about to guard him, he drove to the hoop.  I knew he was going for a lay up so I decided to challenge him and he just dunked OVER ME.  After that, I.......



woke up and saw the other bloggers leaving for the bus.  Bye Smart Gilas.
