Teams have different ways of celebrating victory. Some have dinner together in a nice restaurant, while other teams party the night away.
Blacklist International‘s CEO Tryke “Tryke” Gutierrez had something different in mind.
After an intense 2-1 victory against defending champion RSG PH in the fourth week of Mobile Legends: Bang Bang Professional League Philippines Season 10 (MPL PH Season 10), Tryke and the rest of the squad went sneaker shopping.
Tryke explains why he bought all Blacklist International members Air Jordan sneakers
Tryke posted on his Facebook a day after the team’s victory against RSG PH, showing that he had taken the whole MLBB squad to the only Jordan Flagship store in Southeast Asia located in Taguig, Manila.
“Celebrating the win last weekend here at Jordan Manila,” he wrote.
He then posted a picture of him holding a receipt that stretched for as long as his body, revealing that he had bought the whole team matching sneakers to celebrate their victory. He also explained why he chose the Jumpman over other sneaker brands.
“The Jordan brand is a testament to how much winning can impact a generation,” Tryke wrote. “We’re not just here to win one, we’re here to claim as many crowns as we can while our stars are in their prime.”
Jungler Danerie James “Wise” Del Rosario posted a picture of what Tryke had gifted them, a classic Air Jordan 3 “Fire Red” 2022 that retails for US$210. The colorway is similar to that of their Season 10 jersey.
Blacklist currently has a 5-2 record (14 points) in the first half of the season, earning them the top spot in the standings next to ONIC PH with 5-2 (13 points) and Smart Omega with 4-3 (13 points).
They will next face Nexplay EVOS on Friday, September 9, at 7:30 p.m. GMT+8. Follow ONE Esports on Facebook for more MPL news, updates, and guides.
