Plenty more videos of the team members saying these Tagalog phrases are coming soon.

The Portland Trail Blazers announced on October last year that they will be offering fresh and local content for Filipino fans in the new NBA season, and giving away a bunch of cool prizes. Prior to that, Lillard made the local news for giving a generous donation to help the Philippine General Hospital with repairs after a fire broke out in the facility in May 2021.
