Manila’s been the home for some of the NBA elite over the past couple of weeks. First we had Coach Erik Spoelstra of the newly-crowned Miami Heat. Last weekend we had Brooklyn Nets big Brook Lopez and this coming week, we’re getting NBA All-Star guard and Red Bull athlete Rajon Rondo.
Rondo will be running a Red Bull Skills Clinic for elite collegiate basketball players and will also turn over a refurbished court to a local barangay community. He’s currently on his Asian tour for the Red Bull King of the Rock (coming soon in Manila). After hearing so much about Philippine basketball, he decided to make a pit stop and check out the local hoop scene.
While in town, he will be spending time with the best collegiate players from the UAAP and NCAA for an intensive skills clinic on the 28th. These cagers will get their wings from Rondo and Red Bull, giving them an opportunity that’ll impact their careers moving forward. The following day, he will personally turnover a refurbished court at the San Juan National High School in Brgy. Corazon de Jesus in San Juan City. Both events presented by Red Bull Product of Europe are just a couple of ways for Rondo to give back to the sport that has given him so much and the sport he loves.
