End of an Era: Thank You Kuya Marcus!

Marcus Douthit, in my opinion, is the greatest naturalized player in Philippine basketball history and the one player who turned the Philippines into a basketball power in Asia once again.

He could've chosen to play professionally in other countries with bigger salaries and better opportunities but instead he carried an entire nation's hope of bringing the Philippines back to the world stage. Even-though, he was not able to play in the 2014 FIBA World Cup but he was the very reason why we were there in the first place. Marcus Douthit finished his career with six gold medals, one silver medal and two bronze medals for the Philippines.

"I'll never have Filipino blood, but as far as becoming a Filipino, I'll always have it in my heart."
