Waited for such a long time to witness two opposing NBA teams square off in the Philippines. Unfortunately enough I am not present in the Philippines at this time to grab a ticket and watch- not my favorite team, the Miami Heat but between two contending teams namely the Houston Rockets and the Indiana Pacers. This is not an official NBA season game though as it is a pre-season NBA game where Asia has been one of the venues chosen to stage pre-season games and hopefully NBA official games later. The basketball fever right now is ultra-high as the Filipino people follows this game fanatically being their no. 1 and national sport.The game will be held on Oct. 10,2013 at the latest and modern sports arena in downtown Manila-the SM Mall of Asia Arena.
