Australian vs. Filipino national team. At one point Thon Maker was throwing flying kicks.

There's something both hilarious and kinda scary about Asian athletes going berserk.

Yeah, I recognize in advance that that's borderline inappropriate in 2018, but I don't mean any harm and I'm probably not the only one thinking that about the Phillipines and Georgetown clips.

Not only are you not the only one, I don't know why this would a surprise, since they're doing to same thing to us in cyber on a daily basis.

Anyone else wondering how you have an international game between Philippines and Austrailia that features Andray Blatche and Thon Maker? I don't know, maybe we should go back to the days where a player actually had to be from a country to represent it in Olympic style competition.

Maker moved to Austrailia when he was 5 he should be playing for them that's where he grew up.

Maker needs to brush up on that flying kick form. Looks like a 3rd grader that just watched karate kid for the first time...albeit he would be a 7' tall 3rd grader in this analogy. Perhaps a little more like this:

Those announcers are bananas.....I mean, they act like the Phillipine team is constantly reacting to being assaulted. It's kind of the other way around. Almost every action is precipitated by some nutjob player from the Philipines elbowing someone in the front or the back of the head. Even Maker's flying kick was because some dude donkey punches him, and then hides behind another Australian player's back. You donkey punch someone you take your medicine - you gotta fight at that point. No hiding!!!! Lame.
