Fran Yu is the breakout star of all of the playoffs NCAA 95 Men's Basketball Tournament.
Without a doubt, just about everybody would recognize Colegio de San Juan de Letran's playmaker now.
This, four years after he got bad vibes from social media when the 5-foot-10 playmaker was still playing for University of the East. "Dati, 'di ako makatulog. Wala namang akong ginawa sa kanila tapos gaganunin nila ako," he said.
He then continued, "Naging motivation ko yung post na yun. Gusto kong i-prove na balewala ang hitsura mo pag naglalaro ka ng basketball."
Back in 2015, Yu was a Red Warrior and a certain post questioned where he had come from - and, essentially, just who he was.
Four years later, the now 21-year-old has an NCAA championship as well as a Finals MVP award.
And with that, he has an answer for all those questions from before. "Hi, I'm Fran Yu and we are champions. Mas masarap ibalik yung paninira niya at ito, nagbunga dahil nag-champion kami," he said.
He then continued, "Naging motivation nga yun sa akin dahil gusto kong patunayang dati, inaasar niyo ako pero ngaoyn, champion na kami. Mas masarap yung bawi namin!"
Tell the truth, Fran Yu! You deserve to!
