Regardless of what you think about Andray Blatche, you can't deny that his "Puso" is practically all Pinoy by now.
With the Philippine national anthem playing during the 2017 FIBA Asia Champions Cup, Andray joined Chooks-to-Go Pilipinas pre-game against Petrochimi Tuesday in honoring our country's flag.
Blatche is representing China in the Asian club champoionships in Chenzhou.
While he plays pro ball in China and is not actually available all the time for Gilas Pilipinas, Blatche still shows that's he's taking his status as a naturalized Filipino seriously.
However, it's going to be interesting though as Blatche's China Kashgar crew takes on Chooks-Pilipinas in the quarterfinals of the Champions Cup.
Chooks is parading 7'1" Isaiah Austin, a player that is heavily considered as a possible replacement for Blatche.
That matchup should be fun.
