Slaughter was the starting center for the Sinag Pilipinas team that won the 2011 SEA games and the 2011 SEABA tournament which was the qualifying tournament for the 2011 FIBA Asia Championship. He was also a part the national team pool in preparation for the 2013 FIBA Asia Championship held in the Philippines but did not make it to the final 12 roster. He was again invited to the pool that will train to compete in both the 2014 FIBA Basketball World Cup in Spain and the 2014 Asian Games in Incheon, South Korea, but he declined. - charven

Plays in the Philippines? No offense but he needs to be taken off. Basketball is an American thing - bobbythebrony

What a shame he spent his best years playing for the USSR national team. By the time he got to the NBA, he was old and nearly crippled, but as a young man, he was possibly a match for even Kareem and Wilt.
