Former NBA veteran Donte Greene is open to the possibility of suiting up for the Philippine national team as a naturalized player. Greene, who has been tapped as import by TNT in the 2017 PBA Commissioner’s Cup, joined Gilas Pilipinas pool training at Meralco Gym to get some work in before he makes his debut with the KaTropa on Friday.
You can hardly recognize Lou Amundson these days as he sports a new, cleaner look than the one he’s known for. “I cut it off, man,” the NBA veteran began in a chat with SPIN.ph after TNT KaTropa practice on Thursday. “It’s getting too popular, too many people doing the ponytail, so I changed it up. I don’t know if I started it; I’m not going to claim that, but I was one of the first to do it.” “The term ‘man bun’ didn’t exist before I came through with it,” he added. Sporting a new hairdo also comes at a perfect time – at the cusp of summer season in the Philippines.
And Amundson, who was officially measured at 6-8, is hoping to lead the team to a finals appearance after the Texters fell short in the Philippine Cup. “I hope so,” the UNLV product said ahead of his debut on Friday night against Meralco. “That’s the goal and that’s what we’re here for.”
TNT KaTropa are looking to tap the services of a certified NBA veteran as import for the PBA Commissioner’s Cup. The Texters are bringing in 10-year NBA veteran Lou Amundson as one of two possible replacements for Denzel Bowles ahead of the team’s conference debut on Friday night against Meralco.
