Kobe sees Gilas inclusion as ‘blessing’ and is learning from it

TAIPEI – There was a lot of noise that Kobe Paras generated coming over to play for Gilas Pilipinas in the 39th Jones Cup Invitational.

Overseas Filipino Workers continue flocking to the Taipei Peace Basketball Hall here for Gilas games, hoping for a win by the Filipinos over talented international sides, and, of course, wanting to see a glimpse of Benjie Paras’ son in action.

With coach Chot Reyes bringing in such a talented team composed of Gilas Cadet members, Kobe, just 19 years old and with the least playing experience in the 17-man lineup, has turned out to be Gilas’ loudest, most ardent cheerleader on the bench most often than not.

Fans have not hidden their disappointment over that.

But it’s perfectly fine with Kobe.

“It’s a fact that I’m the youngest in this team and I need to work getting myself the minutes,” Paras said on Friday after he was forced to sit out the game against Lithuania because of back spasms.
