Joshua Torralba shares experience playing with NBA players


Don’t sleep on PBA rookie aspirant Joshua Torralba because his experience in basketball might surprise you.

Torralba’s experiences? He just happened to be one of the trainers for NBA G-League’s Rio Grande Vipers Academy, and he also happened to play a few NBA players too.

“There are a lot of guys that I’ve seen play and played with,” Torralba said on his exclusive interview in Abante News Online’s “Sportalakan”.

The 27-year old has already played with former NBA guard Aaron Brooks, three-time NBA champion Shaun Livingston, son of Hall of Famer Gary Payton Jr, and Houston Rockets forward Danuel House.

Although the former La Salle guard wanted to play in the NBA, he said that the competition there is much different.

“I played with some of the guys, I can keep up pero it’s a different level,” he said.

“That’s always my dream to play in the NBA, but PBA muna.”
