Add a new mansion to the list of Scottie Thompson's achievements.
The Barangay Ginebra San Miguel combo guard posted photos of his new mansion on Twitter on Wednesday afternoon with a caption: From Dream to Reality, Always thank the lord for the gift of life.
By the looks of it, Thompson's new house is simply stylish and luxurious.
Thompson's new mansion also showed how far has he had come.
The four-time PBA All-Star, who also founded his own barbershop named Thompson’s Sports Hair Shop back in 2016, jumpstarted his career in the Palarong Pambansa when he was one of the members of the Western Visayas region basketball team.
Despite his splendid showing there, only the University of Perpetual Help offered him an athletic scholarship for college.
Thompson, however, made the most out of that opportunity and became the NCAA MVP back in the 2014 season when he averaged 26.5 points and 10.5 rebounds all the while helping the Altas reached the Final Four of the tournament.
Thompson then won a championship with the Hapee Fresh Fighters back in the 2015 PBA D-League Aspirants' Cup.
He also went on to suit up for the Gilas cadets (then known as the Sinag Pilipinas) and won championships with the team in the 2015 Southeast Asian Games and in the Southeast Asian Basketball Championship (SEABA) in the same year.
When he moved to the PBA, the fifth overall pick of the 2015 Draft made it to the 2016 All-Rookie Team while also helping the Barangay Ginebra San Miguel in ending its eight-year title drought at the expense of the Meralco Bolts in the 2016 Governors' Cup.
Thompson seized two championships more with Ginebra as the Kings won the 2017 Governors' Cup and the 2018 Commissioner's Cup when he was named as the Finals MVP.
The 6-foot-1 guard was also hailed as the 2018 Most Improved Player and was part of 2018 PBA Mythical Second Team as well.
