Just had an incredible time with these guys in #Palawan. We played basketball and had so much fun! I am blessed to be able to play in the @NBA but I never played for the money or the fame, I always played for the love of the game. #ThisIsWhyWePlay #philippines 🇵🇭 J'ai passé un super moment avec des habitants de Palawan, on a fait un petit basket et c'était très cool. J'ai la chance de jouer en NBA mais je n'ai jamais joué pour l'argent ou pour la gloire, j'ai toujours joué par amour du basket.
