We have the two Younghusbands who are famous in Football. They are now famous TV endorser and commercial models. But this thing that we have right now is the reverse of what happened to those two. We have Gerald Anderson, a very famous TV actor who wants to be a famous professional basketball player. His first step was to play for a PBA D-League team. He is currently a reserve in the NLEX Road Warriors team in the D-league.
NLEX's head coach, Boyet Fernandez admitted that Gerald Anderson is training in the team and he could have been in the team's line-up. He said that Gerald is currently practicing with them for the past 2 weeks. Anderson has played with the likes of Ogie Menor, Erik Salamat, Pamboy Raymundo and other big names in Philippine basketball.
As part of his duty as a reserve player in this PBA D-League team, he regularly watches their games. Here's a picture of Gerald watching his team's game. His team played against RnW Pacific Pipes. Many fans approached him and they took some pictures with Gerald.
Some of his fans said that they asked coach Boyet Fernandez's approval if they can take pictures with Gerald. Coach Boyet said:
“Sige, punta na kayo, kasama namin yan. Bilisan niyo bago umalis (Go ahead and have your photo taken before we leave, he is with us).”
