I am really the only Pacers fan I know in my country.
While there are one or two of my friends who claim to like the Pacers, they are the types who are really haven't been following the team since Uncle Reggie retired.
Today, I got the best news that a fan could ever get.
MANILA, Philippines – The National Basketball Association (NBA) will stage its first-ever preseason game in the Philippines between the Indiana Pacers and the Houston Rockets this October.
The NBA and SM today announced a partnership that will bring the Rockets and the Pacers to Manila for a game on Oct. 10 at the Mall of Asia Arena.
This will mark the NBA’s first preseason game in Southeast Asia as the league continues its growth globally. Basketball is the number one sport in the Philippines and the NBA is the first US professional sports league to stage a preseason game in the country.
The Pacers will be playing right here in my city in October and I will finally be able to see my team in the flesh and not just on TV anymore!
I am absolutely stoked.
October cannot come any faster.
