Bobby Ray Parks Jr. paid a courtesy visit to the Consul General of the Philippines in Nagoya on Friday.

Parks, who is the Asian Quota Player of the Diamond Dolphins, made his preseason debut for the team last weekend.

Come the season, the three-time ASEAN Basketball League MVP vows that he will represent both the country and the city of Nagoya well.

“I will do my best to represent the Philippines and Nagoya this season,” said Parks. “I’m hoping for your support.”

“I look forward to seeing the games,” said consul general Celeste Vinzon-Balatbat. “I am pleased that Japan is looking at Filipinos to strengthen its teams and bring joy to the Filipino community.”
