LeBron in the Philippines

LeBron, Paul George have visited this famous basketball court in a crumbling tenement | SC Featured

The sudden death of Kobe Bryant and his daughter Gianna sparked tributes around the world. Perhaps none were more stirring than a mural painted on a basketball court in the Philippines in the middle of a seven-story dilapidated building that is used as a housing project in one of the poorest areas of Manila. The government is currently trying to evacuate the structure, deeming it “unfit” for living, but the residents have refused to leave, and one of the main reasons is the basketball court at the center of the property. Jordan Clarkson tells the story.

  1. The Philippines is a basketball crazy country. Everywhere you go there whether in the city or the countryside you will find a court. I have seen and played basketball with Filipinos, they play bare footed, with slippers or sneakers if they have them. They have a great passion and love for basketball.

  2. Believe it or not, there is beauty in struggling. These people are poor, humble, and resilient. Through all of that, they're still able to dream, have fun and L💙VE.

  3. basketball can be played half court and 1 ring. in a very dense country with very small spaces like Philippines it's the most suitable sport, just like boxing. football, soccer, baseball, can be very difficult to play in the streets.

  4. I came to AMERICA when I was only 6 years old- I speak fluent in Tagalog. I will always turn my head back to where I came from. We are the most caring, loving people in the world. That’s a FACT.

  5. the highlight of "crumbling tenement"
    that happens when RICH PEOPLE plainly see the building as a HOUSE and not A HOME!
    u better make uplifting titles not the ones making people feel so less in life!
