After a stint back in the Philippines with the National Team, Kobe Paras is back in the US to pursue his NBA dream.
At 20 years old, Kobe Paras has been through ups and downs and have gone through a lot of basketball adversity, although you can say that his Philippine basketball career may already be definite as he shows athleticism and basketball skills at a young age.
However, this young man wants to be in the NBA.
This year, Kobe Paras led the Philippines to the (SEABA) South East Asian Basketball Tournament and won a gold and has been getting a lot of exposures in international basketball playing alongside Filipino veterans and going up against international players.
Now back in the US, he is looking to pick up what he had already started but this time he will be playing under Coach Reggie Theus, a former NBA All-star and the current head coach of California State University Northridge Matadors.

Kobe Paras' journey in the US started really well with Cathedral High School but it went downhill with Creighton in college as he was unable to secure playing time with the team. Now with his new team, Kobe Paras might be able to get the opportunity that he never got with Creighton.
