Play • 28 min

Got hops? Professional basketball player Phil Jalalpoor knew he wanted to do something in his life with basketball by the age of 5 years old. After watching Space Jam over and over on his television, looking up to Michael Jordan and asking his Mom for a hoop outside to practice - Phil was set on making his dream a reality. Growing up in Germany and travelling across Europe and North America to play - he ended his last season in Germany, right back where it all started. As much as he loves playing in his home country, he also thought he might try to go to the Olympics for basketball too! However, this time - playing for Team Iran. How you ask? With his Dad being Iranian and moving to Germany before Phil was born, Phil gained dual citizenship, and with that - took off to Tokyo. Even though Phil has been playing pro for the last few years AND is now an Olympic athlete he says, he’s not done yet.
