For the past few years, David Carlos has shown the world that Filipinos can also fly.

But last Saturday, the 5-foot-9 dunk artist showed that he could also ball.

For the third leg of the 2019 Chooks-to-Go Pilipinas 3×3 Patriot’s Cup presented by Coca-Cola held at SM Muntinlupa, Carlos was part of the newly-formed Gold’s Gym Muntinlupa squad together with Muntinlupa Cagers’ Biboy Enguio, Pamantasan ng Lungsod ng Muntinlupa standout Lloyd Cabeguin, and ex-Diliman College FSA Tommy Lisika.

And helping the country rack up much-needed FIBA 3X3 points is the reason why the 30-year-old immediately said yes to joining the guest team.

“Basta para sa bansa natin, I would not say no,” he said.

Muntinlupa was not able to win a single game in pool play, falling to Phenom-Basilan (21-14) and Inoza-Gulf Bulacan (21-14).

Still, Carlos showed that he belonged, scoring a total of 10 points for the day — including seven against Bulacan.

“I was so happy, dun ko na lang ulit na feel na happy ako sa basketball,” he said, admitting that he got rookie-jitters in the first game.

“And I was so excited to show the people that David Carlos can play din.”

Just like in the dunk competitions, Carlos thrilled the crowd with his strong drives and acrobatic lay-ins.

With this, the native of Manila, who is also playing for MPBL club team Makati Super Crunch, gets called up by a team come the third conference of Chooks-to-Go Pilipinas 3×3.

“Yung style ng 3×3 fit talaga sa game ko,” he shared.

“Feeling ko mapapasaya ko pa mga fans sa playground style ng basketball ko.”

To close out the day, he was able to bag his third straight Slam Dunk crown in the Coca-Cola side-events.
