Pacquiao family meets KD, Curry in Staples Center

Just days after manhandling Adrian Broner, Filipino boxing icon Manny Pacquiao is enjoying the rest of his days in the United States.

He recently watched the much-hyped Lakers’ game against the Golden State Warriors on Tuesday (Manila time) at Staples Center in Los Angeles, where he also crossed paths with his former nemesis Floyd Mayweather, Jr. at courtside.

After the game, Pacquiao, a self-proclamied Warriors fan, and his family had a chance to exchange pleasantries with NBA superstars Stephen Curry and Kevin Durant outside the dugout.

Pacquiao and his two sons Jimuel and Michael had met Curry back in 2015, but it was his wife Jinkee’s first time to see the NBA champions up close and personal.
