While the current iteration of the Pinoy 3X3 squad has been the strongest one yet, we asked, and you delivered with your All-Filipino dream trio (and one sub) who you think will hypothetically compete in a 3x3 World Cup with the best possible chance of winning it all.
Japeth Aguilar headlined ABS-CBN Sports’ recent poll of Filipino netizens’ Filipino Dream Team for a 3x3 tournament following Gilas Pilipinas’ gallant stand at the 2018 FIBA 3x3 World Cup.
San Miguel gunner Marcio Lassiter and KaTropa Troy Rosario, a member of the recent Pinoy 3x3 squad at the FIBA World Cup, were tied at 20 to complete the dream squad.
Two high-scoring swingmen, and two mobile bigs who can stretch the floor while gobbling up those rebounds is definitely a good combination for 3x3’s electric style of play.
The current iteration of the Pinoy 3X3 squad was the strongest one yet, made up of Christian Standhardinger, RR Pogoy, Stanley Pringle, and Troy Rosario but fell just short of qualifying into the next round of eliminations of the 2018 FIBA 3X3 World Cup, but the host squad put up a good fight, even stunning no. 6 Brazil in the Filipinos’ lone win in the tournament.
How would you think the 'new' squad will fare?
Barely missing the cut is rejuvenated Alaska big man Vic Manuel, who amassed a total of 19 points in the online poll.
San Miguel center and four-time MVP June Mar Fajardo garnered 16 votes to place sixth, while Stanley Pringle and Calvin Abueva were tied at 14 mentions each.
Beermen Arwind Santos (12) and Christian Standhardinger (11) round out the top 10 of the poll.
Here are the results:
