It seems someone is ready to follow in the footsteps of the Philippine Basketball Association (PBA) superstar Terrence Romeo.

A 12-second video clip posted on Twitter by dbuzzketball showed Romeo’s one-year-old son Terrence Jr. displaying his basketball skills.

In the video, Terrence Jr. hoisted a ball at a miniature basketball goal. The shot went in and Terrence Jr. was immediately hugged by his proud dad.

Since it was posted at 4:08 p.m. last August, the video clip has garnered 26,700 views, 2,056 likes and 263 retweets.
Part of the caption read “this is how you did it dad,” referring to Romeo’s crucial three-pointer in the San Miguel Beermen’s 127-125 victory over the TNT KaTropa in Game 2 of the PBA Commisioner’s Cup PBA Finals last Wednesday night.

The three-pointer allowed the Beermen to tie the game at 106-106 with 18 seconds left. San Miguel went on to win the game after two overtime periods.

In that game, Romeo finished with 29 points on a six-for-eight shooting from the three-point area.
