It’s been a couple of weeks since Nike Philippines unveiled Rise, their reality show/basketball development program where 24 kids from all over the country are hand picked to go on a 6 week training program. As mentioned during the launch, Nike PH will be releasing weekly episodes beginning tomorrow, August 2 and every Sunday thereafter, chronicling the rise of the hopefuls until the culmination of the program where they play against the elite Nike athletes.
For a sneak peek of the first episode, check out the video below:
The episode highlights some of the stories of the 24 kids, many of which do not believe they can make it to the program or deprived of opportunities to make ‘it’ in the world. Once they get to the House of Rise, they get to meet Paul George, one of the best two-way players in the game. But this was not always the case. Like the kids, George knows what it takes to rise. If you think about it, PG13 is one of the best players to look up to especially when you’re talking about rising up from adversity.
Nike Rise begins tomorrow on TV5, 6pm.
