Philippines Basketball Game Gets Ugly with Huge Brawl (Video)

Philippines basketball

The world of Philippines¬†basketball doesn’t get a whole lot of press here in North America, but all that would change if they brawled like they did a few days ago more often.

We’ll spare the details of the¬†Emilio Aguinaldo-Mapua match (if you want, you can read them here) and we’ll get right to the “good” stuff. We hope you think that giant displays of violence are “good.”¬†

Judging by the attendance, people in the Philippines feel the same way about Philippines basketball that we do.

No. They shouldn’t.
