WATCH: Orlando Magic’s Fournier Plays Street Basketball in Palawan

Orlando Magic’s French guard, Evan Fournier, is in the Philippines, taking a break after his team’s early exit at the current NBA season.

He has been actively sharing about his trip in Palawan on Instagram.

Recently, he posted a video where he was playing street basketball with a few locals in Palawan.

He said on his IG post:

Just had an incredible time with these guys in #Palawan. We played basketball and had so much fun! I am blessed to be able to play in the @NBA but I never played for the money or the fame, I always played for the love of the game.

Looks like Fournier is scouting his opponents prior to FIBA Olympic Qualifying Tournament in July. 🙂

Most of the comments on his post showed appreciation. One said:

I give you props for playing in the dirt with my countrymen. By doing that you felt how much we love the game. You got my respect.
