At the press conference of the PLDT Allstar Challenge this afternoon held in the new Mall of Asia Arena, I got to meet up close some of the basketball legends from the Philippine Basketball Association and the National Basketball Association.
I had to fangirl. I just had to. Without apology. These were guys I used to watch during their heyday. Though for the NBA stars, I had to Google everyone else last night save for Rodman and Pippen 😜
In times like these, I wish I were an avid follower instead of an occasional watcher of the sport. Because then I could’ve asked smart questions. I could’ve impressed everyone with my encyclopaedic knowledge of stats. I could’ve looked anything but a fan girl!
But, still, I got nice photos with Jerry Codiñera, Vince Hizon, and Jojo Lastimosa (who was hot in person!), as well as with Horace Grant, Mitch Richmond and Scottie Pippen!
Tomorrow is my last chance for a photograph with Dennis Rodman, Jason Williams and Coach Oscar Robertson.
Looking forward to the games tomorrow, and my question only is: why is Olsen Racela not part of the lineup?!?
Bal David, Kenneth Duremdes, Noli Locsin still got game. And a little bit of Marlou Aquino.
Bal was the little David among the goliaths of professional basketball hee hee!
