For his whole career, Marc Pingris has been known to provide his team energy and hustle on the court.

Even with the Philippine national men’s basketball team, the San Mig Coffee forward is expected to provide the team a burst with his defense and rebounding.

So when he played a lethargic game in Gilas Pilipinas’ showdown on Wednesday against a selection of PBA stars, the whole team predictably followed suit.

Gilas team captain Jimmy Alapag spoke to Pingris after the match about the forward’s play.

“Kinausap ako ni Jimmy na nawawala raw yung energy ng team kapag wala yung energy ko,” said Pingris, who stood out as one of the team’s best players in its close match against New Zealand’s Tall Blacks national team.
