Basilan Steel forward Gab Dagangon shares story of multi-colored pair of sneakers

Moving Obituary showing Bryant’s career and death

Throughout his colorful career in the Maharlika Pilipinas Basketball League, Gab Dagangon continues to add color not just with how he plays with his current team, the Basilan Steel-Jumbo Plastic, but also with his on-court appearance. 

If you’re following closely the Basilan team seeing action in the ongoing MPBL Lakan Season, you will notice Dagangon regularly clad in his multi-colored pair of sneakers — a red sneaker on one side and a blue one on the other.

Dagangon is doing it not to catch attention, but to oblige his dearly devoted wife, who wants him to suit up with a multi-colored pair of shoes.

“Eto kasi yung gusto ng misis ko,” Dagangong told FOX Sports Philippines in an exclusive interview. “Simula nung nagka-baby kami, gusto na niya makulay.”

“OK naman sa akin kasi gusto ko ng makulay.”

According to Dagangon, he has been wearing this multi-colored pair since he was playing for the Bataan Risers last season.

Dagangon’s colorful appearance was complemented by his vibrant performance inside the court and on Wednesday night, as he led the way to help Basilan in snapping a three-game losing skid.

He finished with 17 points and pulled down eight rebounds while leading the Phenom-outfitted Steel to an 82-70 win over the Caloocan Supremos.
