Bobby Ray Parks Suiting Up for Alab Pilipinas?

"Wait for me, I'm coming home."
This is what Filipino NBA hopeful Bobby Ray Parks said on a video he posted on Instagram and Twitter on Wednesday.



The former Texas Legends guard is contemplating on coming home after failing to make the final cut of the Westchester Knicks in the 2016-2017 NBA D-League Season.
"So I heard there's another team who needs a Filipino to represent the country," Parks continued. "Hhmm, you guys know me well, basta para sa bayan, game ako dyan."
This will only mean that Parks might suit up for ABL debutant Alab Pilipinas for the 2016-2017 Season.
Alab's co-owner Charlie Dy was even surprised after someone informed him after seeing the 15-second Parks video. 
He disclosed that the 23-year-old NU standout had a conversation with him last week. 
"Kausap ko siya last week and we talked about his next plans after the NBA D-League," said Dy.
"I told him we have a slot in the team for him if he's coming back," he added. "Ang sabi niya pag-iisipan niya muna."
Since then, Dy hasn't heard anything yet since the two-time UAAP MVP is still in Los Angeles.
Coaching Alab will be former La Salle guard Mac Cuan and it already have former PBA players to lead the team.

Also comprising the squad are Igee King, Jovit Mendoza, Anthony Gavieres, and Lawrence Domingo..
The Philippine team will make its debut on November 27 against the Singapore Slingers at the Alonte Arena in Binan, Laguna.
