Have you seen Gerald Anderson play ball? Guy's got skills.
We also recently discovered that he has totally cool basketball tricks up his sleeve...
The long distance shot
Three's the charm
Not giving up
We think catching a basketball game with a fan as huge as him would be such an experience: You'll have a lot to talk to since you both think ball is life. What a nice bro moment for the boys; and the girl ball fans, too, of course (then again, it's such a cute "date" idea also, if you ask us)!
Well, newsflash: If you can come up with uber creative shots like his, you might actually just get to watch an NBA game with him. It's time to put that basketball love of yours to good use at NBA Philippines' #ShootLIkeTheNBA promo.
Think of the most creative way to shoot a basketball, ping pong ball, rubber ball, crumpled paper, or any other object through anything that resembles a hoop. Use your imagination (or get ideas from Gerald), do it with flair, throw it up with gusto, blindfold yourself, tie one arm behind your back, and shoot like the NBA! Capture the sequence on video and upload on your Facebook or Instagram account set to public with the hashtag #ShootLikeTheNBA.
Entries will be judged based on creativity with the Top 2 entries winning one (1) ticket each to the NBA Global Games China 2016 in Shanghai featuring the Houston Rockets and New Orleans Pelicans with Gerald on October 9 at the Mercedes-Benz Arena. Runners-up will receive exclusive NBA merchandise.
The 10th edition of NBA Global Games China will be headlined by Houston Rockets’ four-time NBA All-Star and 2012 Olympic gold medalist James Harden, 2011-2012 Most Improved Player Ryan Anderson, and 2009 NBA Champion Trevor Ariza as well as New Orleans Pelicans’ three-time NBA All-Star and 2012 Olympic gold medalist Anthony Davis, 2016 No. 6 overall draft pick Buddy Hield, and 2013 NBA All-Star Jrue Holiday.
