Filipinos love competitive team sports and basketball definitely ranks high on that list of events that really draws massive crowds together whether there may be a game happening in their local multi – purpose halls or the big leagues are playing on their television screens.
The Philippine Basketball Association, commonly known as PBA, is one of the most, if not the most, celebrated sporting event in the Philippines. Each game is highly anticipated and draws thousands to crowds together to watch the awaited games.
Each PBA season is divided into three conferences starting with the Philippine Cup, followed by the Commissioner’s Cup, and lastly, the Governor’s Cup. The Commissioner’s Cup and the Governor’s Cup are the only conferences that allow foreigners, or “imports”, to participate in the games and this definitely raises the stakes as extremely skilled Filipino and Foreign players shoot and dribble their way to the championships.
The current season is more than halfway done with the championship games of the Commissioner’s cup about to end. The players of Barangay Ginebra and the San Miguel Beermen are currently going head to head as they dribble their way to the championship trophy. With each game getting undeniably more intense as the end gets nearer, the players are surely getting more and more stressed and anxious to play better than they did their previous game.
These players are surely training both physically and mentally and really taking care of themselves so that they can perform, play, and be their very best selves on court but these players are definitely not alone in their journey.
These PBA players have their own significant others supporting them on the sidelines and making sure that they are in their very best forms every time they go on court and these ladies create a little club called the PBA Wives and Girlfriends or also called the “PBA WAGS.”
Barangay Ginebra is currently the force to be reckoned with as they take the lead on the championships but they surely cannot do it alone. Pau Fajardo keeps shooting guard Scottie Thompson in line as he takes on each game.
Barangay Ginebra’s power forward Japeth Aguilar on the other hand has former Binibining Pilipinas candidate Cassandra Naidas keeping him company throughout the games.
Rookie Jett Manuel is not alone as he goes through his first championship games with Karla Reyes right by his side.
The lovely Kayesha Chua on the other hand keeps Aljon Mariano company on and off court.
The Beermen are definitely not left behind though.
June Mar Fajardo may be the Beermen’s center on court but the lovely Aeriel Patnongon seems to be the center of his life off court.
Australian David Semerad on the other hand has model Gwendoline Ruais by his side during each game.
And Laura Lehmann keeps Vonn Pessumal motivated both on and off court.
These are just some of the members of the PBA WAGS and they surely keep these star players working and motivated not only on court but off court too.
