Manila, Philippines --- Marc Pingris is not gonna lie, he misses Gilas Pilipinas.

Pingris was present at the Araneta Coliseum Saturday, witnessing Gilas Pilipinas' 47-point victory over Singrapore in the 2017 SEABA Championships.

He wished he was still out there playing.

"Feeling ko kanina, sana nandito ako, po-postehan ko itong mga to," he said as he showed at at the Big Dome with his wife Danica and clad in a Pilipinas jacket.

"Nakaka-miss, nakaka-miss. As a player, talagang mami-miss mo yung mga ganyang pagkakataon eh, yung bonding niyo as a team, kung ano ang mga kalokohan na ginagawa niyo," Pingris added. "Nakaka-miss talaga."

The Star forward played for Gilas Pilipinas starting from 2013-2016 as was part of the crew that finished with a silver medal in the 2013 and 2015 FIBA-Asia Championships.

As the personification of the team's "Puso", Pingris was also part of the Philippine squad that beat Senegal in the 2014 World Cup, the country's first win at the world stage in four decades.

With Gilas having four games left in its SEABA schedule, Ping is looking forward to seeing more of them to show his support to Gilas.

"Syempre, na-miss ko rin yung team, tsaka  gusto ko ring suportahan yung team, gusto ko suportahan ang Pilipinas," Pingris said.

"Kinausap ko nga si Mr. MVP na 'kelan yung alis niyo? Sama ako,'" he added. "Tinatanong ko lang kung ano yung schedule nila para makapanood kami ni misis."
