TNT Tropang Giga’s Poy Erram calls it quits on his Gilas Pilipinas stint as he announced it in a social media post last Sunday.
The 6-foot-7 big man suffered a knee injury during the national team’s build-up for the 2023 FIBA Basketball World Cup starting this 25 August.
“As I close this chapter of my life, gusto ko pong magpasalamat sa lahat ng taong nagtiwala at tumulong sa akin. Thank you for giving me a chance to fight for my country. Thank you for letting my dreams become a reality,” Erram said.
“Just by wearing that jersey having that name in front always gave me goosebumps. Because not a lot of players have that chance to play and represent the country. I know there are players that are more deserving than me but I know that I deserved this.”
Erram averages 3.9 points, 2.1 rebounds, and 0.5 assists in 12 FIBA games for Gilas.
