Asian Games: Don Trollano 'sacrificed' for Jordan Clarkson

The team had to make the sacrifice for the spot of the Filipino-American NBA player.
Cleveland Cavaliers guard Jordan Clarkson is in the lineup for the 'Gilastopainters' squad that will don the Pilipinas-emblazoned jerseys at the Asian Games starting next week.
It meant however, that one of the players in the pool would have to give up his spot to be able to make room for the Filipino-American NBA player.
Unfortunately for Talk N' Text KaTropa Don Trollano, he bore the brunt of it all and was the one that had to make way for the Cavaliers combo-guard, per announcement from coach Yeng Guiao.
Here's the video of the full announcement:
When asked about his thoughts on missing the team, the former Adamson Falcon was pretty blunt about it. "Alangan namang piliin pa ako kesa kay Clarkson diba?"
He added that he was supposed to be the final guy in the roster of 12, but he joins young guns Ricci Rivero and Kobe Paras as the hopefuls not to make the final cut.
Trollano, however, was still asked to stay put and join tomorrow's practice, just in case Clarkson won't be available after all.
Despite the cut, Trollano knows that it's only for the improvement of the squad.
"Okay lang ako dun, ang galing galing nun e. Anong laban ko dun? No hard feelings."
