TV host and former volleyball star Gretchen Ho cannot help but marvel at a young boy’s basketball skills akin to that of four-time NBA champion Stephen Curry.
Ho proudly featured the boy, Third Aggabao, in her Instagram page last Thursday, July 21, sharing photos and videos of him playing his favorite sport.
“Boy gone viral, Third Aggabao, 10 year-old from Muntinlupa City, takes after @stephencurry30 in more ways than one,” she noted. “His Coach Jell shares that he was just coming off the bench and was a last-minute addition to the lineup of Team Brgy. Bagong Silang. Since Third couldn’t make his shots against taller, older opponents, his foe started to tease him through court antics.”
“As THIRD found his groove on the court and eventually made shots, he got back at his opponent by doing the ‘NIGHT NIGHT’ Curry imitation,” she added.
The video Aggabao doing the “night night” has since went viral and noticed by Steph Curry himself.
“Even Andre Iguodala and Lebron James took notice, making this baranggay in Muntinlupa come alive,” she said.
Aggabao also got featured in Ho’s Youtube channel, also on July 21, where he is shown practicing basketball in the neighborhood, playing against Ho and receiving a UA CURRY FLOW 9s, a pair of rubberless basketball shoes. JB
