“And Leo hits in for the 3…………… pointer”.
Ex-Brunei Barracudas Leo Avenido is no stranger to playing abroad but his latest adventure sees him earn rave reviews for his performance on court. Already scoring the points for his new club, the Singapore Slingers, Leo ended up as the top scorer for the team on more than one occasion, winning games single-handedly at times.
The fan favorite, however, cuts out to be a joker off court, as speaks of his performance as “lucky” and also jokes around with fans post game. We from slingersnation.wordpress.com took time off his busy schedule and asked him 3 questions that fans had wanted to ask him:
1) What is your favorite food in Singapore?
Chicken rice with kailan.
2) What are your hobbies, apart from basketball?
I like swimming.
3) If you are not a basketballer, you would be a….?
Coach, a basketball coach. I love basketball a lot.
Seems like the Slingers’ SEA import cannot live without a basketball in his life. Well, we certainly hope that Leo would remain in our rosters for seasons to come and continue putting in the treys in. “Lucky”!
