    Andray Blatche granted Filipino citizenship

    http://www.philstar.com/sports/2014/...andray-blatche

    I wonder how much this guy is going to receive. that's not a problem though for their patron manny pangilinan as he also made it public that he's interested on buying an NBA team (warriors, clippers). blatche could suit up for the Philippines for the 2014 FIBA world cup this august.

    Weren't they trying to get McGee as well?

    Lol, like the McGee-Blatche duo was so successful.

    Better Blatche than McGee. Weird to see an episode of Shaqtin a fool while he is wearing the Filipino jersey.

    He doesn't look Filipino


    How does this work though, he has no ties to that country whatsoever.

    Never mind I found it. They can't breed their own success and great players so they just import.

    Did Hakeem not become a citizen while attending college in the states?

    Nope. Hakeem was naturalised in '93 and played for USA in '96 as a naturalised player. He was drafted in '84 so all throughout his college career he wasn't an "American" yet.

    Duncan also was naturalized in the states I think.

    Ibaka is naturalized by Spain, Chris Kaman by Germany, Roy Hibbert by Jamaica.

    This may sound ridiculous, but Andray Blatche now is the best basketball player in Asia.
