Gilas Pilipinas: Bobby Ray Parks Jr
Bobby Ray Parks Jr, the son of a legendary PBA import Bobby Parks Sr, has done a great job so far of carving his own path in basketball.
Parks, 23, has been out chasing his NBA dream since 2015, having played for the Texas Legends in the NBA D-League. Before that he was two-time UAAP MVP playing for the National University Bulldogs, a SEABA Championship MVP, and a PBA D-League MVP and champion.
He has seen action as well with the Gilas cadets and youth teams since 2011, winning gold medals in two Southeast Asian Games.
He joins this iteration of Gilas Pilipinas as a more mature and more developed all-around player with solid NBA D-League experience. The 6-foot-4 combo guard is athletic, versatile, fast, and boasts strong basketball IQ. He serves as another scoring option, solid defender, and ball-handler for Gilas. – Rappler.com
