IT'S hard to hide a 7-foot-2 center like Kai Sotto.
Yet somehow, the 17-year-old wunderkind was able to sneak in a short stay in the country last week just before the Philippines went on lockdown.
The former UAAP Juniors MVP posted a clip of a pickup game with his childhood friends in Las Pinas on his Instagram account, sweating it out just before returning to the US where he has been training year round.
"Got some games in before lockdown in the Philippines. Can't believe I've been playing this game with you since i was little and here we are now still loving the game. Always having fun playing with my brothers. Miss you guys already," he said in the IG post.
Videos from the game, also posted by Sotto, shows how much the teenager has improved since taking his act overseas.
But it was not all Sotto highlights. In one play, a much shorter friend drew cheers when he scored off the teen giant off a dazzling move.
