WITH one short tweet, San Miguel import Chris McCullough sparked talk of becoming a naturalized player for the Philippine national team.
On Tuesday night, the former NBA player sparked interest on Twitter when he posted on his official page @brisskuno, 'Naturalized player for Gilas ......??????.' He embellished the tweet with an eyes and man with hands raised emojis.
The tweet, predictably, drew several responses from fans who apparently approve of the high-flying American import to become a naturalization candidate for Gilas Pilipinas.
Just 24 years old, the 6-foot-8 Syracuse product has endeared himself to Filipino basketball fans with his athleticism and sincere love for Jollibee's chicken joy meal.
If ever, McCullough will become the third import in the ongoing PBA Commissioner's Cup to be the subject of possible naturalization for the national team.
Ginebra import Justine Brownlee's naturalization papers, in fact, are now in Congress, although moving at a slow pace. TNT KaTropa import Terrence Jones has also ignited the same talk for his fine play.
Currently, former NBA player Andray Blatche is Gilas' naturalized player for the coming 2019 Fiba World Cup. Fil-foreigners Stanley Pringle and Christian Standhardinger have also been tapped for the same role during the World Cup qualifiers.
