After sending size 17 shoes, Fajardo willing to work with Ethan Kirkness

With local shops usually only serving up to a size 15, June Mar Fajardo sure knows that it's a struggle trying to scoop up shoes that fit his feet here in the Philippines. So when he found out that Ethan Kirkness was also having trouble with the most basic of his basketball needs, the reigning three-time PBA Most Valuable Player came through with not just one, not two, not three, but four pairs of size 17 kicks for the Batang Gilas prospect to use. 'Wala siyang sapatos eh, nagkataon na same size kami. Madami naman akong extra, wala naman susunod sa akin yung kapatid ko maliit naman yung paa. Mabuti mapakinabangan,' Fajardo said on the reason behind his gesture. Kirkness, the 14-year-old FIl-Australian behemoth who already stands at 6'9', is in the country for a six-week training program with Batang Gilas. He received the shoes on Thursday and was on deck Friday to meet the Kraken and watch San Miguel battle Rain or Shine at the MOA Arena. He was already rocking the blue and red pair of Air Force 1s Fajardo sent him. Seeing himself in young Ethan, Fajardo shares the difficulties Kirkness experiences when it comes to shoes, practically the most essential gear a basketball player needs. Before he was able to buy shoes from the websites of American retailers like Eastbay and Footlocker, the Kraken had to rely to the good hearts of several University of Cebu alumni to send him shoes back in college. 'Dati naman wala akong sapatos, nahihirapan din ako maghanap. Yung mga nagbibigay sakin nung nasa college ako, galing States pinapadala ng mga alumni sa UC. Di ko nga tinatapon yun eh, nasa 30 plus na sapatos nasa bahay,' Fajardo shares. And with him having the opportunity to basically do the same for what many are touting as the future of Philippine basketball, June Mar jumped on the opportunity. 'Pinapahalagahan ko talaga yung mga binibigay sakin tapos ngayon, ako yung may chance na magbigay, bakit hindi di ba, may extra naman ako,' he added. Aside from shoes, Fajardo is also willing to work out with Kirkness if and when the teenager decides to relocate to the Philippines. 'Magpapaturo kaming dalawa, sabay na lang kami. Kailangan ko din mag-improve,' the Kraken said.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8 .....»»
