Troy Rosario recalls shoeless days

TNT Katropa rookie Troy Rosario isn’t one to take his blessings for granted, especially given the hardships that he went through at the beginning of his playing career.

That’s why the former NU Bulldog went totally sentimental in this “sneaker haul” post.

“I can still remember how hard it is for me to have a pair of basketball shoes when I started playing. I experienced having one pair for one whole season. Minsan umaasa sa bigay ng school at pag minalas pa na masira wala na magagamit. I even borrowed shoes from my teammates,” wrote Troy.

Don’t look now, but this once-shoeless baller is on his way to winning the PBA rookie of the year award.
