NBA dream aabutin na ni Kai Sotto

By: - 03/25/2019

SISIMULAN na ng high school star na si Kai Sotto ang pagtupad sa pangarap na makapaglaro sa NBA.

Sinabi ng 7-foot-2 Ateneo standout ang kanyang plano na lisanin ang bansa at mag-training abroad sa isang Instagram post Lunes.

“Nakapag-decide na po ako. I’ll be leaving soon to start training fulll-time,” sabi ni Sotto.

“I want to devote the next two to three years to single-mindedly focus on my goal of joining the NBA by 2021 and 2022.”

Naniniwala ang 16-anyos na si Sotto na ang training sa ibang bansa ang magbibigay sa kanya ng international exposure para maging unang purong Pinoy na maglalaro sa NBA.

“After a lot of effort by me and by my dad to assess all the opportunities presented to me, I strongly feel that leaving immediately to start my training and getting the right exposure will go a long way to help me realize my dream,” dagdag ni Kai.

Ipinangangako rin si Sotto na napabalitang may offer mula sa mga Spanish at German teams na pagbubutihin ang ensayo para makapagbigay karangalan sa bansa.

“I will train very hard and sacrifice and focus in the next few years so that one day sooon, you will be very proud of me.”

Namaalam rin si Sotto sa Blue Eaglets na kanyang binuhat para sa dalawang UAAP juniors finals appearances at kampeonato noong Season 80.
