Paul Lee has been playing well lately and now, he has more reason to be inspired for the Magnolia Hotshots.
Lee has blessings upon blessings in the past couple of days alone.
First, he agreed to a new three-year deal to stay with the Hotshots and then he welcomed his first child to the world, a lovely daughter with his wife Rubie.
His daughter, who was born healthy Monday, has been given the name Tokyo after Japan's capital city.
"Yun kasi gusto ng wife ko," Lee said on the name "Tokyo."
"Napagusapan lang na favorite namin yung Tokyo sa Japan and dun din siya nabuo so...," he added.
Against the Elite, Lee fired another 19 points on top of five rebounds and four assists.
As the blessings keep coming, Lee is clearly just more inspired to play better.
"Of course, first baby and then I got renewed sa team. Iba yung feeling na pag first baby so ayun dagdag inspirasyon for me to work hard kasi lahat na ng ginagawa ko is for my baby and for my family," Lee said.
"Sana lang wag matapos," he added on his blessings. "Alam mo yun, work hard and ayun yung blessing to follow. Ayun lang."
Being a new father though, Lee is expected to have some sleepless nights ahead. But he doesn't mind it at all.
"Okay naman. Ayun nga sabi ko I'll do everything for my baby so ok lang yun kung magpupuyat ako. Part lang yun ng pagiging magulang," Lee said.
