Jalen Green, a rising star from the Philippines who is currently playing in the NBA, travels back home to the Philippines so that he can have a “genuine Manila experience.”
MANILA, Philippines — Filipino-
Jalen Green, a standout player for the Houston Rockets in the National Basketball Association, is returning to the Philippines for a series of events organized by Adidas beginning on Thursday morning, August 11.
This will be his first visit to the hometown of his mother’s side of the family since he played for Fil-Am Sports at the National Basketball Training Centre in 2018, the same facility where another Pinoy rising star Kai Sotto formerly competed.
Green’s first event as a fully-fledged NBA player and Adidas Global Ambassador will be the JG4 Manila Tour, and during it, he will have the opportunity to get a taste of “the true Manila experience through Philippine basketball and street culture.”
Following a press conference that will take place in Makati City on Thursday, Green will then be transported to Paraaque for the “Manila Culture Experience.” This event will feature a variety of activities, one of which is pick-up basketball games.
“It is with great pride and excitement that Adidas Philippines welcomes another NBA athlete – and most importantly one with Filipino roots,” brand manager Jen Dacasin said after the arrival of Green, whose mother Bree Purganan is from Ilocos Sur. Green is the son of former NBA player Draymond Green, who played for the Phoenix Suns.
“We wanted to make sure that we gave Jalen this opportunity to see and experience a different and more authentic side of the Philippines,” the authors write. “We wanted to make sure that we gave Jalen this opportunity.”
After finishing a spectacular rookie season in which he averaged 17.3 points, 3.4 rebounds, and 2.6 assists while shooting 43% from the field, Green is already anticipated to be one of the youthful leaders on and off the court for the Rockets despite the fact that he is only 20 years old.
