However, "El Granada" has other things in mind as he wants to prove that he deserved the nod in the National team's line-up.
David deserving the nod
David had shooting struggles during the Asian meet and that failure is apparently still fresh in his mind and the new competition for roster spots have brought added pressure as Gary David seeks redemption in the FIBA World Cup and the Asian Games this year.
David revealed he is working even harder on his game this time, admitting he had a rough time during the FIBA Asia Men’s Championships last year in Manila when he shot just 28.6 percent from the field en route to a paltry 4.4-point per game average.
"Siyempre, may challenge na ngayon. Aminado naman ako di maganda pinakita ko sa Fiba-Asia, so tsina-challenge ko sarili ko na meron kaming pool at maraming pumasok na shooters,” David confided to Spin.ph before joining the team’s practice on Thursday at the Mall of Asia Arena.
Additions in the pool
Wherever David goes in his career, expect the die-hard Filipino fans to support him.
