Look: Chot Reyes overheard telling Gilas players to “hit somebody, put somebody on his ass” on video

Former Chicago Bulls center Luc Longley has been doing the media rounds telling reporters that Gilas Pilipinas Coach Chot Reyes has told Gilas players to to come out and thug the Aussie players.

While many Filipinos on social media dismissed Longley’s allegation while defending Coach Chot Reyes as someone incapable of instigating his players to go that low, a short video showing Reyes telling Gilas players to hit somebody surfaced on Twitter lately.

According to video uploader Anton Tioseco @antontioseco, Coach Chot Reyes’ instruction came during the timeout just before the brawl.

However, Tioseco clarified he is not insinuating that Reyes directed Gilas players to hurt the Aussies but everything in the tweet is factual.

NLEX player Larry Fonacier came to Chot Reyes’ rescue and clarified that based on his personal experience while playing for him in the past, there was nothing unusual about the instruction but to match the opponents’ physical play.

Meanwhile RED || camila caBAEo @mylittlemissred said she heard it differently.

Netizen Jerome @JeAranez agreed with RED || camila caBAEo.

Bill Gabay @billgabay remarked that sharing the video is not helping at all for the cause of Chot Reyes and the Gilas players.
