MANILA--Allyn Bulanadi has officially said it: he will still be with Gilas Pilipinas Men.
"One more year for flag and country," the Basilan Steel star and Alaska Aces draftee said on Sunday night through Facebook announcing that he is recommitting with the national team.
Bulanadi loomed to be a cinch for the Gilas Men who played in the second window of the FIBA Asia Cup Qualifiers in Manama, Bahrain.
But due to a dislocated right shoulder, he was eventually sidelined.
Following a surgery to his shoulder, he is also unavailable for the third window in Angeles next month.
"Because of [the] unexpected injury, I wasn't able to realize that dream last year," Bulanadi further said.
But with the renewed commitment, the six-foot-four gunner now looks forward to his return to play.
"I promise to work harder to make you all proud and not waste this precious opportunity of a lifetime," Bulanadi vowed.
He added, "I am grateful for the trust and opportunity given to me by SBP to fulfill that lifelong dream."
