PBA players and their furry, cute ‘balls of sunshine'
Fierce Pinoy cagers turn into gentle giants in the presence of their furry friends.

We witness how they fearlessly face their opponents and exert their all in their every game. However, what most of us don’t see is how the gentle giants of the Philippine Basketball Association (PBA) pour their hearts out not only to their loved-ones, but to their furry, cute “balls of sunshine” as well, making them great furrents (fur parents).

Tagged as “The Muscleman”, the Alaska cager proves that his muscles are not only for basketball but for his family and their pet dog Angel and Bi as well.

The Cebunano Hotshot makes sure that his furry babies are also present in bonding moments with his family and friends.

Just like his beastly yet amicable nature on the court, it appears that their black floof Dwayne exudes the same trait based on this snap.

Going back to Bohol has always been a pleasure to the Meralco Bolts bigman as he’s able to reunite with his ‘boys’ Peanut and Milo.

Hmm who did it? Chuck or Kenji? #frenchbulldog #frenchiesofinstagram

Being one of the toughest guys in the league, it’s no surprise that the Barangay Ginebra king would opt to adopt fur babies as tough as him. Meet his bulldogs Chuck, Kai, Kenji, and OG, and his partner’s mushy Pekingese Cash. Chuck and Cash joined the bandwagon of celebrity pets as they both have their own Instagram accounts while OG is considered by his furdad a lucky charm.

It seems that the PBA and Gilas Pilipinas neophyte fails to hide his obsession with his Labradors Choco and Chuchay as he even let them lurk on his bed! And their family continues to grow as his babies already have their own. #Loverador indeed!

With his towering height, it’s kind of surprising to know that the Filipino-American wingman of BGSM is a proud furdad to a cute Yorkshire like Yoshi.

Meet Aubrey, the adorable French Bulldog who’s also the apple of the eye of the bearded standout of Talk n Text TropangTexters. Isn’t she cute?

He may look threatening on the court, but behold how wide his smile was while posing for the camera with their family’s pet dog Lilah. And of course Yogi wouldn’t let himself be left behind in the cuteness game.

The small but terrible point guard of the Star Hotshots doesn’t only quickly let his power and talent melt in their games, but his heart also melts quickly with his beloved Japanese Spitz Yuki who also joins him in his exercises.
