PLAYER'S BIO


Early life Nico is third the son of Johnny Elorde, a boxing promoter in the Philippines and the grandson of Gabriel Elorde. His two older brothers Juan Martin Elorde and Juan Miguel Elorde are both professional boxers. Although their family is well known in the boxing community and he was introduced to boxing by the age of four, instead, Nico chose to play basketball to be different from his brothers' chosen sporting careers. College career Elorde attended De La Salle Zobel during his high school days and decided to play for the De La Salle Green Archers. However, Elorde decided to transfer La Salle's archrival Ateneo de Manila University because of lack of playing time in his freshman year and the team recruited more point guards, which would probably decrease his already small playing time. Elorde had to serve a one-year residency rule of the UAAP and finally suited up for the Blue Eagles in the 2012 season. Professional career On August 23, 2015, Elorde was drafted by the Alaska Aces with their 33rd pick, however, he was left unsigned by Alaska. In September 2015, Elorde was reported to be practicing with the Mahindra Enforcers, a team owned and coached by boxing champion Manny Pacquiao, and raised the possibility of an Elorde-Pacquiao back-court tandem, where both names are popular in the sport of boxing with Pacquiao being one of the best boxers at the time, and Elorde, whose grandfather Gabriel was a very popular boxer in the 60s and 70s and was considered one of the best boxers ever. However, that eventually was shelved as Elorde was sent to Mahindra's ABL affiliate Pacquiao Powervit Pilipinas Aguilas (now the Pilipinas MX3 Kings), another team owned by Pacquiao. On March 2016, after the 2015–16 ABL season ended, Elorde was signed by Mahindra for the 2016 PBA Commissioner's Cup
