Meet Nicolo Mercado: International Phenom

For years basketball players from foreign countries have been making their dreams come true by playing in the NBA. Right now there’s a 12 guard that’s chasing those same dreams. His name is Nicolo Mercado and he attends San Beda School in Manila, Philippines. Mercado has been ripping up the competition in his country and when he travels to the United States.

This point guard is very quick and his court vision is outstanding. At a recent Jr. NBA camp for 14 and Under players from different countries he was given the Rising Star Award. Nocolo skills have earned him a spot on the national team that will be competing in Australia this summer. Basketball Spotlight will keep you posted on Mercado’s progress. Check out this video of him balling when he was only 10.
