How often do you get to show some love to your favorite NBA player in person? Once in a blue moon, right? That's probably the reason why a passionate Filipina fan of Minnesota's court general Ricky Rubio grabbed the chance to kiss the Spanish basketball prodigy during his adidas Take on Manila Tour on Friday at the adidas Two Parkade in Bonifacio Global City Taguig. She's one lucky girl!
Ricky definitely got a great welcome event as he made it clear that he wants to witness how crazy Filipinos are about basketball and everything that has something to do with it.
Rubio is in the Philippines to help young ballers develop the right mindset and values to become successful athletes. And, part of becoming a great athlete, according to the hotshot guard, is to become very very passionate about basketball, keep working hard, work smart, have pleasure and enjoy the process.
Tomorrow he will play basketball with some lucky players at the Gatorade Hoops Center in Shaw Blvd..
