FIBA: Chot takes responsibility for ugly Gilas-Boomers brawl

MANILA, Philippines --- There's a saying that when teams win, it's on the players. When teams lose, it's on the coach. And after Gilas Pilipinas figured in an ugly brawl against Australia in the 2019 FIBA World Cup Asian Qualifiers, the incident is definitely on head coach Chot Reyes. [Related: FIBA WORLD CUP ASIAN QUALIFIERS: Gilas-Australia match ends in ugly brawl] Reyes knows. "As a head coach ultimately, I take accountability and responsibility," Reyes said on SportsCenter Tuesday, less than 24 hours after the free for all at the Philippine Arena. Reyes also addressed the video that surfaced that showed him supposedly giving instructions to take down the Australian players by force. Chot denied such claims and downplayed the whole thing, saying the words were taken out of context. [Related: FIBA: Gilas boys starting to issue apologies for infamous brawl against Boomers] "Anyone who understands basketball, if you take offense with that statement, you don't know basketball," Reyes said.

It's basketball, for me I'm not even bothered by all the bashers and all the negative feedback I'm getting on that. Every coach that you ask will tell you that's basketball," he added.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»
