Webb said he would rather cheer for the Philippine basketball team despite their slim chance of victory than support another country “stealing our land from us.”

I plan to cheer for our national athletes even if their chances of winning may be slim. I also have no plans of cheering for a country stealing our land from us. Mabuhay,” he tweeted.

During the oath-taking of Filipino-Chinese businessmen in Malacañang, Duterte said Gilas Pilipinas will lose to taller players from Italy.

Ang problema ang unang kalaban natin Italy. Wala. Walang laban. Walang tayo diyan. China na lang tayo magpusta. Wala. Ay sus. Pa-corny ka pa. Wala talaga tayo,” he said.

We will lose dito sa Italian, ang lalaki kaya niyang mga gagong ‘yan.

However, Duterte said Gilas may be able to defeat Angola.

Ang sunod natin Angola. Ah ito, pwede natin ilibing nang buhay,” he said.
