AND DWIGHT makes eight.
The breakout Gilas star is flying to Japan as he signed up with the Toyama Grouses in the country's B.League for the 2021-2022 season.
On Twitter, Ramos — already among the most popular players in the national team, even before his stellar performance during this year's Fiba Asia Cup qualifiers — was lauded for his decision as he becomes the eight Filipino to take his shot in Japanese hoops.
Others, though, mourned the Dwight we could have seen playing for the Ateneo Blue Eagles.
