Kai Sotto has credited his training with former NBA player Chuck Person for sharpening his skills and giving him more confidence in his shot.
Person, through the official Instagram account of his training center, gave a glimpse of that training program, where Sotto was put through dribbling and shooting drills.
"He gave me a lot of confidence to trust my shot," Sotto said of Person, who earned the nickname "The Rifleman" for his marksmanship during his NBA career.
"Tinulungan niya ako kung paano maging ready sa shot ko and maging confident," he added. "Kaya after ng pag-training kami, simula noong naglaro na ako sa TSF (The Skill Factory), 'yun ang dinala ko sa laro ko."
Sotto is preparing to play in the NBA G League, after opting to skip college and instead take part in the professional pathway program that is meant to get him ready for the NBA.
