NBA Fibr Allstar Lineup

Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas (SBP) charmain Manny V. Pangilinan, commonly known as MVP, had assembled 12 players playing in the NBA to face our very own Gilas Pilipinas national basketball team in a  two-day charity event dubbed as Gilas Last Home Stand. The NBA Fibr all-star is led by Rockets star guard James Harden, Pacers' Paul George, and Clipper' Blake Griffin.

You can watch their games later and tomorrow at 8pm in a slightly delayed basis on TV5.

Most of them had been signed by an NBA team before the naturalization process started and some of them had been dropped out of the pool.

Mr. Smooth posterizes one of Iran's giants

We may have lost in the semifinals against Iran (again) but I'm sure Ranidel de Ocampo's nasty in-your-face dunk against one of Iran's giants (yeah, they're a team of giants) is enough to bring smiles to everyone who witnessed it.
