Positibo ang isang opisyal ng basketbol sa Estados Unidos na maaring maabot ni Kai Zachary Sotto ang pinakamimithing pangarap na maging unang Pinoy na makapaglaro sa National Basketball Association.
“I think he saw kind of where he was and was able to size himself up a little bit and now he’s able to take a step forward because he’s grounded in reality, he’s not caught kind of in the hype world,” saad ni Jeremiah Buswell ng The Skills Factory (TSF).
Ang TSF ang partner ng Pinoy cage phenom sa Amerika.
Hinirit pa ni Buswell: “I think he understands that and so as long as he continues to move forward and progress got every, every opportunity in the world to be a good NBA player.”
Pinahayag ng 17-year old at 7-foot-2 na si Sotto na pursigido niyang paghusayan pa ang kanyang talento para mahasa sa pangarap na makaabot sa US majhor league.
Noon lang Huwebes, binulaga ng former Ateneo star ang sambayang Pinoy nang ma-showcase siya sa foreign sports website na ‘Bleacher Report’.
At kahit na nasa Land of Milk and Honey, kita naman kay Kai na winawagway niya ang bandera ng ‘Pinas.
“My ultimate dream is to make it to the NBA and I also want to represent the Philippines on international tournaments,” pahayag niya sa panayam ng Bleacher Report.
“I just want to show the Philippines is part of the basketball world,” giit niya.
