MANILA, Philippines — Basketball prodigy Kobe Paras continues to impress the international basketball scene.
He might be the youngest in the Philippines’ delegation to the FIBA 3×3 World Cup, but he has been making the big shots.
FIBA on Tuesday named Paras as the Player of the Day after finishing the open day with a combined 15 point output.
