MANILA, Philippines – Two-time UAAP Most Valuable Player Bobby “Ray” Parks Jr. has been invited to practice again with the Los Angeles Lakers.
Parks, the son of the late PBA great Bobby Parks Sr., couldn’t hide his excitement as he posted his reaction on Twitter.
The former National University has trained with the legendary team four days ago, and it seems the Lakers were interested with what he has to show at practice.
He even posted on Instragram the jersey he used while training at the Toyota Sports Center, the practice venue of the Lakers.
“Just finished working out with one of the best team in NBA history. Dad, I know this is your favorite team and you would have loved to had been there, but this is just the beginning. Thank you Lord for this blessed opportunity #DreamChaser #blessed #LakerNation #NBAGear,” Parks wrote in the caption.
The Lakers is one of the most popular NBA teams today, and is the home of some of the NBA's best players including Kobe Bryant, Pau Gasol and Steve Nash.
Parks gave up the chance to play in the US’s Georgia Tech years ago to play for the NU Bulldogs in the UAAP.
