A day after Gilas elevated Philippine basketball back among the world’s elite, a kid from Quezon City took to the streets to pay tribute to the man who brought us there.

He took five shots in a row, all behind the arc. He missed them all. But for his sixth attempt, he curled to the right using an imaginary screen, took aim, and put up a prayer.

BANG.

He threw his fists into the air and celebrated like he just gave the country its first FIBA win in 36 years.

In short, it had Jimmy Alapag’s signature all over it.
