Minutes before the star-studded Kapamilya Playoffs 2016 started last Sunday, the SM Mall of Asia Arena roared in chorus to welcome no basketball star to the court. But it was someone with equal superstar status, Kathryn Bernardo, who came to cheer for on- and off-cam partner Daniel Padilla. She even had posters made to express her support.
Padilla captained his eponymous squad, with other Star Magic artists, some of them even played ball previously, like Xian Lim and Zanjoe Marudo. Against Gerald Anderson’s Team Gerald, Team Daniel would overcome their first half shortfall through the last two quarters. The rally saw some dramatic moments in the end, but nevertheless worked to Team Daniel’s favor, 96-93. Padilla was instrumental in the team’s success, along with teammates Axel Torres (MVP) and Ronnie Alonte.
Bernardo was seen all excited in support of her beau, who even fell to cramps in the last five minutes of the match. All was well in the end, though, with Bernardo’s hot property eventually coming back in the last two minutes to steer the victory. Padilla, who regarded the win as “chamba,” even came to hard court hero status after being part of the Mythical Five!
The fans got it covered in terms of bringing us how she played cheerleader to the basketball player!
