MANILA, Philippines—Dwight Ramos, one of the country’s brightest basketball stars today, is not closing his door on the possibility of playing in the PBA in the future.
Ramos is one of the several Filipino standouts who have decided to take their acts to the Japan B.League.
“Of course, I’ve always wanted to play in the PBA. And just like the locals in Japan, they want to stay in Japan play there,” Ramos said on Noli Eala’s Power and Play.
“I think the same thing goes for us Filipinos, so we’re just hoping that opportunity comes again, that after we’re all done with our stints overseas, we could come back and play in the PBA.”
The 23-year-old Ramos was supposed to suit up for the Ateneo Blue Eagles in the UAAP but the uncertainties due to the continuous surge of COVID-19 cases in the country forced the versatile guard to play elsewhere.
“It’s really hard here with the situation, you’ll never know when you can practice when you can play games,” said Ramos.
For now, the Gilas Pilipinas ace is focused on his upcoming B.League stint with the Toyama Grouses.
“My mind is on this next season coming up for me because that’s obviously what’s next. But then after this season, that’s when I’ll start thinking about what’s going to happen for me after that. Whether that’s the PBA or it’s another league, I’ll just have to weigh my options again.”
