Before anything else, I would like to clarify something.
Just because Simon Atkins has a foreign-sounding surname, some people would assume he’s some Daly City nobody who is trying to make it big in the third world depriving the local basketball players the opportunity to shine (not that being a nobody in Daly City and trying to be famous here is a bad thing). Simon actually grew up and studied in the Philippines, De La Salle Zobel to be exact.
Anyway, back to the show. Simon’s ankle injury still prohibits him to play as much as the De La Salle Green Archers would want him to. But for those who are intrigued whether the boy has “the moves,” let’s take a flashback…
Back when he was in high school winning their first ever UAAP Junior Basketball Championship. Remember, he was wearing jersey #7.

By the way, the autographed jersey pictured above, which he wore when La Salle played in Bahrain, is currently on sale. I won’t say where, though. 😛
