The NBA season never ends, and Filipino fans have a lot to look forward to as their favorite teams and stars clash in the playoffs. The NBA Finals will be here before you know it, and who will win the coveted Larry O’Brien Trophy this season is anyone’s guess.
With the increased excitement and energy surrounding all things NBA, many celebrity fans have shared their excitement and revealed how they are enjoying the games.
Amped up for the Postseason
The first season out of the bubble is incredibly exciting for fitness trainer and TV host Vince Velasco because anything can happen in this new landscape of superteams and superstars.
“There’s just so much to unpack, from the rise of new stars to player movement to the new Play-In Tournament, which allowed more teams to advance to the NBA Playoffs,” Vince explained.
Vince’s daily life revolves around the NBA, and as a die-hard fan, he never misses major game highlights, even playing the video in the background while working at home or at the gym.
Chris Newsome, a PBA star and self-proclaimed NBA geek, is cut from the same cloth, filling his schedule with hoops-related activities like checking fantasy basketball during the regular season. He always brings his gadgets with him to watch NBA games live and on-demand, as well as keep track of his players’ stats at any time and from any location.
“I love the excitement of the playoffs and the competitiveness of all players trying to make their way to the NBA Finals,” Chris added.
Big NBA Fans
Boom Gonzalez, a DJ, host, and sportscaster, expressed how much Filipinos love basketball and how he has grown to admire recently named NBA MVP Nikola Joki of the Denver Nuggets.
“We’re very knowledgeable, passionate, and intense basketball fans, to the point where some people consider basketball to be a lifestyle,” he said. “Joki deserves this award after playing the entire season and carrying the team despite the absence of their other superstar, Jamal Murray.”
Meanwhile, Gretchen Ho, a former athlete and news anchor, has been following Golden State Warrior Stephen Curry this season, who finished third in NBA MVP voting after a spectacular comeback from injury. “Curry averaged 32 points per game and shot 48 percent from the field, 42 percent from three-point range, and 91 percent from the free throw line, passing Wilt Chamberlain to become the Warriors’ all-time leading scorer.”
Apart from catching up on games with her NBA League Pass – the league’s premium live game subscription service – she turns to social media and news websites for the latest happenings across the world.
“Whenever I see them play and hear their stories of overcoming challenges, I get encouraged to do the same in my life as well,” she shared. “I really stay up-to-date with the news and sports for inspiration to fuel my workouts and job as a reporter.”
