Nike Basketball athlete Jordan Clarkson made a visit to Manila this weekend to Bring His Game to Filipino Basketball. He inspired young basketball players in Manila, as well as shared a special moment with the Gilas Pilipinas, the Philippines National Basketball team, who are on an incredible journey for a place to compete at the greatest sporting event of 2016.
The biggest surprise of the visit was Clarkson launching the Gilas Pilipinas new team uniform with the team at a media-only launch held at Kerry Sports Gym in Taguig. Being the voice behind the roll-call of the Gilas players, he surprised the players with his presence and charged them to do the Philippines proud. “I’m here because I want to share all my knowledge, skills, expertise, whatever it is that I have, to this team as we set our sights on the big games this summer. I bring my game to the Philippines because I want to see you guys shock the world and prove how good Filipino players are. I want each and every Filipino to be proud of what we can accomplish. We’ve got a golden opportunity to recapture our rightful place in the basketball world right here on home soil” said Clarkson during the event.
