Athletes spend much of their time training and preparing for the next competition. They participate in one tournament after another and at times, travel out of town and overseas.

That’s what some PBA players go through on a yearly basis.

Stars such as Gabe Norwood, who is also a longtime national team player, had quite a hectic year having played abroad to represent the country in the Asian Games and Fiba World Cup Asian qualifers while also suiting up for Rain or Shine in the PBA .

The holiday season, however, provides a much-needed respite and  opportunity to make up for lost time with family.
