Joe Abunassar has always known that Filipinos are not only passionate in the sport of basketball but also highly skilled. After all, he has trained so many teams from the Philippines for years.
“Filipinos work very hard. Sometimes we like them better than the NBA guys because they have such great approach to training. They really want to get better,” said renowned basketball trainer, who visited Manila for the first time last week to hold a two-day camp for kids and as well as a one-day clinic for local coaches. About 100 kids attended the clinic held at the Roosevelt Park Gym in West Greenhills.
Abunassar heads one of the top basketball camps in the US called Impact Basketball, which has a stellar list of NBA stars that underwent training there. The list includes NBA veterans Kevin Garnett, Derek Fisher, and Chauncey Billups, young superstars John Wall, Kyle Lowry, Dion Waiters and Rudy Gay, and international stars Ricky Rubio and Yi Jianlian.
