When the boys were born, my Dutch husband and his brother Victor were really hoping the kids would take up football and play for the Netherlands team. But having been born and raised in the Philippines, the boys naturally took to basketball instead. Our son Markus was already dribbling a ball before he could even speak at 1.5 years old.
Our boys are extremely passionate about basketball, particularly the NBA.
So despite last night’s Friday traffic, I dropped everything to go to the VIP opening of the NBA store at Glorietta 3.
The newly opened NBA store is located where CPK used to be. We’re talking about two floors and more than 1,000 square meters of retail space. This is the largest NBA store outside of the USA, which probably means our economy is good
The store carries authentic NBA merchandise from all 30 teams. You’ll find head-to-toe gear for all ages, starting with adorable kiddie clothes (for early conditioning)
Plush dolls and action figures
A fun spot where guests can measure their hands and feet against famous basketball players’
A place to order personalised jerseys
plus all kinds of signed memorabilia that are actually for sale!
The store also carries products by Adidas, New Era, Spalding, Stance Socks, 2K Sports and many more.
As a mom of NBA fans, I could not contain my excitement. Let the Christmas shopping begin!
The NBA Store is located at Glorietta 3, Ayala Centre, Makati.
