Pinoys unite online for #Puso2019
"Basketball has touched the lives of every Filipino. Hosting FIBA 2019 World Cup would be a dream come true for our nation." - Manny Pacquiao taking to Instagram his support for the FIBA Basketball World Cup campaign. (Photo taken from Pacquiao's Instagram: @mannypacquiao)

We looooove basketball. And nowhere in this world loves basketball like we Filipinos do.

This basically summarizes everything if you go through the thousands of posts on Twitter and Instagram in support of our country's bid to hold the FIBA Basketball World Cup in 2019. A few hours before the announcement on whether the Philippines or China gets the rights to staging the sport in the near future, the online world is turning abuzz with the hashtag #PUSO2019, the official hashtag of the campaign. Check out some sports figures, celebrities, and netizens sayng what they have to say online in support. (Why else would be called the social media capital of the world?)

From sports figures...
