MANILA, Philippines — Mayor Lani Cayetano and the entire Tenement community warmly welcomed NBA star and Gilas Pilipinas Player Jordan Clarkson in his visit anew to the Tenement court in Barangay Western Bicutan, Taguig City, today.

The Tenement court was among the places Clarkson visited for his outreach program to children who, like him,  truly love the game of basketball.

He gave the children who are members of the Tenement Basketball Team t-shirts, basketball shoes and autographed basketballs.

Mayor Cayetano, for her part, expressed her deepest gratitude for Clarkson’s unwavering love for and inspiration to young players, especially those from Tenement which he has already visited many times.

Taguig City hopes for the continued success of Filipino athletes, just like Clarkson’s.

“We wish Clarkson all the very best and please know that Taguig City particularly Tenement will be praying and cheering for your continued success,” she said.
