Filipinos love the “Splash Brothers“, the “Black Falcon” and the tenacious defense of “Iggy“. This time around, for sure, we Filipinos will show more love to the 2015 NBA Champion Golden State Warriors as the team will host Filipino Heritage Night on November 14, 2015 against the Brooklyn Nets at the Oracle Arena.
For the first time across the NBA, the Warriors will celebrate Filipino Heritage Night by wearing special edition Filipino Heritage Night shooting shirts before Saturday’s game. Fans will be able to purchase the Filipino Heritage Night shooting shirts at any Warriors Team Store location inside Oracle Arena or at warriorsteamstore.com. In addition, fans will have the opportunity to purchase a limited edition Filipino Heritage Night knit hat. – NBA.com

The main goal of this event is to support the local Filipino organizations in the Bay Area.
Last year Panini America produced basketball trading cards with a patch taken from a Chinese New Year themed jersey.
I wish Panini will take part on this event and make a limited edition card that has a piece of cloth from Filipino Heritage shirt which is also called as the “Kampeon” (means Champion).
