Philippines still working to add Clarkson — There are just a few weeks before FIBA Asia tips off, meaning time is running short for the Philippines to add Lakers guard Jordan Clarkson to their official roster, which would also require Clarkson missing some of Lakers training camp. Vargas said the Lakers officials have no objection for Clarkson to play for the national team on a long-term program.

Josh Powell is leaving his gig as an assistant with the Rockets to try and play for the Bucks next season … Nate Robinson is reportedly considering an offer from a team in China … Steph Curry says Riley Curry taught him how to dance …. The rabid interest in basketball and the NBA in particular spilled over earlier this week with the news that the Houston Rockets and Indiana Pacers will play a preseason game Oct. But the Philippines Basketball Association predated that event by several years and the sport, Levy said, has roots there dating to the late 19th Century.

Billboards and buses tout the game. And often those hoops are made of plywood and wire rims. Through its Basketball Without Borders program and other outreach efforts, the NBA is familiar with the sort of poverty and deprivation that make attendance at one of its games — including the upcoming one — strictly a dream for many Filipinos.

But Miami Heat coach Erik Spoelstra , who is half-Filipino his mother is frpom San Pablo, Laguna , has traveled to his homeland in each of the past four offseasons.

This article is a lot better now Mr. Blinebury, and to be honest I really did not like what you have written yesterday. Philippines is a basketball crazy nation and that runs in our blood even if we are now living abroad.

Long before the ankle breaker, cross-over, tear drops, lob, throw down etc….. Its just fitting for Philippines to be acknowledge by the NBA more that any other asian nation.

Everytime I tried to shoot everywhere, and dunk my small ball on wall or top of the door, I always say those guys names. If Michael will come to town, It would be much bigger than this I think. Love Kobe, but Michael is still my idol! I hope the commentators of the game was from Sports5 para pag-tira na Harden..

May kasama pang foul…. Soooo… Glad the motherland can be recognized. I luv this article and can really relate!!! This article sent goosebumps all over my body.

It is so overwhelming reading those compliments about our country. This is my first post at NBA. I signed in just to comment to this piece! Thank you Fan Blineburry for this feature. Even though your previous post was not so okay with me. Like all other young Filipinos, I feel in love with the Game of Basketball first before i ever had my first crush and girlfriend.

We Pinoys have an unlikely love affair with Basketball. Thanks NBA for letting this happen. Filipinos will never forget this event. I remember visiting Manila in and people over there were crazy over Kobe Bryant http: He was just getting started and the Lakers were on the rise with the addition of Shaq 2 years earlier.
