MANILA, Philippines—Kai Sotto continues to grow his identity in the international scene when he participated in the Basketball Without Borders Global Camp during the 2020 NBA All-Star Weekend.

The 7-foot-2 youngster also got to mingle and learn valuable insights from one of the alumni of the program.


Sotto had a chance to have a conversation with Toronto Raptors forward Pascal Siakam who participated in BWB Africa 2012 as a representative of Cameroon.

“Sometimes it’s not the game on the court, it’s the life that the game brings you,” wrote Sotto on his tweet. “Learn from those that walked before you.”


Siakam, who was drafted 27th overall in 2016, is a first-time All-Star after averaging 23.5 points, 7.5 rebounds, 3.5 assists, 1.0 steals, and 0.9 blocks.

The 6-foot-9 forward was also the 2019 Most Improved Player and helped the Raptors to the NBA title against the Golden State Warriors.
