Alaska Jr NBA/WNBA Mentor for 2016

And finally, the day that I am waiting for has come. Together with other media and bloggers, we patiently wait for our turn to be able to get a group interview with New Orleans Pelicans Norris Cole and WNBA Champion Taj McWilliams-Franklin. They will mentor this year’s batch of Alaska’s Jr. NBA/Jr. WNBA National Training Camp finalists.

Alaska’s Jr. NBA/Jr. WNBA is the league’s global youth basketball participation program for boys and girls, teaches the fundamental skills as well as the core values of the game at the grassroots level in an effort to help grow and improve the youth basketball experience for players, coaches and parents.

The event was held at NBA Café, SM Aura last Wednesday, April 20, 2016
There was a lot to learn from both of the mentor.  Norris Cole and Taj McWilliams are both accomplish players and coach but more importantly they stand for something far more than that.

Norris Cole was trained by a Filipino coach for 2 years, of which gives him an idea of our culture. He was warm during the interview and now he is excited to coach Filipino kids and impart them the value of the sports. Besides being a good basketball player, Cole is also a good example since he was also excellent when it comes to his studies. Being a salutatorian, he shows that you could be good on both things just as long as you put your heart and mind into it.

Taj Mcwilliams, is now coaching and imparting her skills to her students. Juggling her time with coaching and her family, shows that her passion can be on both.
