Nike Rise with Paul George
Taking you a month back when Paul George was in town to officially open the House of Rise.
Last July, Nike Philippines launched Rise - a reality show that documents the journey of chosen streetballers.
Nationwide tryouts were held by former Gilas head coach Chot Reyes alongside his team of scouts and trainers to search and develop talents that might be hidden in different barangays, towns, cities. and provinces across the country.
As part of the program, Nike brought 2-time NBA All-Star Paul George to the country to inaugurate the House of Rise, and introduce the 24 Rise players that were chosen out of the thousands that joined the tryouts.
I attended his presscon and witnessed as he shared some of his personal Rise moments - coming back from the gruesome injury he suffered, and finding his rhythm again on the court.
A month later, Nike brought The King himself to our shores to give Nike Rise contestants a boost.
Thanks Marcus of YoMarcus.com for the pass.
