Basketball Big in the Philippines

First, you may wonder, where the heck is the Philippines? Well the Philippines is an archipelago country that is in the Southeast Asia. Archipelago is a group of islands that made up the country. If you can check the map of the Philippines most of places are surrounded by water.

Just a quick history, this country is a third world country. It has been invaded by so many superpowers like the Spain, Japanese and then the Americans. You may think that because it is a third world country that it does not have the ones we have in America.

Well your wrong, in this country people speaks English and they are better than most of the South East Asian neighbors. It even has McDonald’s. It also has online betting and you can get promo codes from here

Yes, you heard it right it has McDonald’s. What stands out with this country is that, this country is crazy about basketball. Even if racially they are not gifted with height, but they are still hooked to basketball. This crazed is reflected in their streets. When you have a chance to stroll on the streets of this country you can see a basketball rim in every corner. Some may not be a standard hoop but still it is still a ring.

Basketball is big here. Even big names in the NBA visited this place and was amazed by how the sport is played here. Unfortunately, no matter how passionate the Filipinos on basketball they do not have currently a player that is representing the country in the NBA.

I mean a pure breed Filipino that is playing in the NBA. Although Jordan Clarkson who is playing for the Utah Jazz is half Filipino and half American. Filipinos are still clamoring to have one that is pure Filipino.

Looking Forward

Well for now Filipinos has a prospect in Kai Sotto a 7-footer player that is a pure Filipino. They are hoping that Sotto will be drafted in the NBA soon. He is still young though at 19 but he has serious footwork and shooting. It is more of a Kevin Durant type player.
