The NBA season might be heating up recently, but down here on local soil, our homegrown athletes are currently on leave as it’s a favorite Filipino holiday. And who else to spend it with than with their loved ones? No, we’re not just talking about their family, as our dearest players took to Instagram how they’re also celebrating Christmas with their significant others.

Take a look at how brought in the cheese, with heartfelt captions that are just fit for the Christmas season! (Note: Some of these couples actually became an item around Christmastime!)

From ballers…


A very Merry Christmas from our family to yours! May this holiday season bring joy and happiness to all of you!
