J.J. Barea Wears the Puerto Rico Flag During NBA Finals Ceremony (Pictures)
There have been seven NBA players who were born in Puerto Rico, and none are more accomplished in the League than J.J. Barea. The diminutive Dallas point guard had 15 points in the team’s Game 6 close-out win, and the Mavs won all three games after he was inserted into the team’s starting lineup. During the championship trophy ceremony, he made his home country proud by adorning the Puerto Rico flag. Check out the pictures of J.J. Barea wearing the Puerto Rican flag:
Barea was a key factor in the Mavs winning the title and he did his country proud. As if his country didn’t already love him enough for this billboard, you know they’ll love him even more now that they’ve seen him represent the country’s flag on the biggest stage possible. He earned that title.
