MOA Arena Brings All Star Challenge to Manila

Filipinos will be feted once again to a spectacular world-class basketball extravaganza with the coming of NBA Legend Superstars on July 18 at the sparkling new and ultra-modern SM Arena. They will be pitted against our own PBA Legends superstars like Jojo Lastimosa and Kenneth Duremdes.

Mall of Asia Arena will be sponsoring the All-Star Basketball Challenge on July 18.

Composing the NBA All-Star team are Scottie Pippen, Horace Grant, Charoy Bentley, Dennis Rodman, Cliff Robinson, Jeff Trepagnier, Mitch Richmond, Byron Russel, Alexis Foyle, Jason Willians and Chris Campbell. Pippen, Grant and Rodman were part of that legendary Chicago Bulls team that won two three-peats in the 90’s. This will be the chance for Filipinos to relive those Bulls glory days one again – and live at that. And if you notice Jason Williams is there. He is one of my fvorite player in the NBA and known for his on-court antics and shifty moves. He is not called "white chocolate" for nothing.

And of course who can forget Mr. Byron Russel; Utah Jazz could have won one championship against the Chicago Bulls if only Russel did not swayed so fast  to the fake of Michael Jordan in the pivotal Game 6 championship game in 1998 - and left him open for the winning shot.

NBA legend Oscar Robertson will be calling the shots for them. It would be so interesting to see how Mr. Robinson really look like in real time, or is he that tall?

The PBA ALL-STAR team will be composed of legends Alvin Patrimonio, Jojo Lastimosa, Kenneth Duremdez, Marlou Aquino, Nelson Asaytono, Bong Hawkins, Bal David, EJ Feihl, Noli Locsin, Jerry Codinera and Vince Hizon.

Truly, this is most-awaited event for every basketball fans to anticipate for. With last year’s super NBA event where the likes of Kevin Durant and Derrick Rose coming here, it wouldn’t be farfetched now that in years to come, NBA would finally agree to hold some pre-season games here.
