A POSITIVELY FILIPINO EXCLUSIVE
In an exclusive interview with veteran broadcaster Lloyd LaCuesta for Positively Filipino on January 16 in San Francisco, the winning coach, whose team continues to dominate the NBA, reveals his impressions of the Philippines and his hope that someday a Filipino will make it to the big leagues in basketball.
"We can never say never," he tells LaCuesta. "The passion is there and the youth programs are getting better. Maybe it will be a Fil-Am first, to break through."
Lloyd LaCuesta was the South Bay Bureau Chief of KTVU/Fox Channel 2 in the San Francisco Bay Area for more than 35 years. He retired last June 2012 and is currently an adjunct professor at San Jose State University. LaCuesta visited Badoc, Ilocos Norte in 2010 to see the village where his father grew up and to connect with relatives, only to find out that these relatives were living in San Jose, California!
