June Mar starting to embrace leadership role in Gilas

MANILA, Philippines – "Ang bilis ng panahon."

This was the reaction of reigning PBA Most Valuable Player June Mar Fajardo after seeing a couple of members of the "23 for 23" pool in the Gilas Pilipinas practice on Monday night at the Meralco Gym.

Fajardo was not present last week when Gilas held its first practice of the year, and so he missed seeing the bulk of the cadet pool that may play for the country in the 2023 FIBA World Cup.

Nevertheless, he still caught a glimpse of the country's basketball future Monday, as both CJ Perez and Abu Tratter joined the team in practice.

"Napapanood ko 'yung iba diyan, si Abu sa UAAP and si CJ sa NCAA. MVP siya," said Fajardo after practice. "Nakaka-impress, at nakakatuwa din na makita sila dito, kasi sila na 'yung future ng Gilas. Sila na ang bata."
