Complete PBA line-up for NBA Asia Challenge 2009


With the NBA Asia Challenge set to happen on September 11 at the Araneta Coliseum, the Philippine Basketball Association released its complete PBA line-up for the event. The PBA team will be lead by PBA greats Allan Caidic, Alvin Patrimonio, Benjie Paras, Ronnie Magsanoc and Kenneth Duremdes with coach Yeng Guiao as PBA mentor.

Completing the line-up are active PBA players, some are also ‘Team Pilipinas’ members; Wynne Arboleda, Arwind Santos, Sonny Thoss, Willie Miller, Japeth Aguilar, Joseph Yeo, Dondon Hontiveros, Enrico Villanueva, Jay-R Reyes, Marc Pingris.

Update 3! NBA Legends won over PBA All-Stars

Meanwhile, the NBA team will be lead by NBA stars Robert Horry, Dominique Wilkins, Tim Hardaway and Vlade Divac with NBA great Kareem Abdul-Jabbar as NBA mentor. They will be backed-up by players from the NBA Development League. Also, the New Jersey Nets’ Dance Team and  Nets’ Mascot, Sly the Silver Fox will be on the event to add up a great entertaining show.

Since I was young, I love playing basketball and always watch PBA games and my favorite team is the 90’s Ginebra composed of Marlou Aquino, Noli Locsin, Vince Hizon, Bal David and of course, Robert Jaworski. I’m also an avid NBA fan and I very much appreciate the technology today because I am able to watch video replay highlights of NBA games at NBA’s website.

I want to watch this event. I even made a potential NBA and PBA head-to-head match up including some interesting statistical information about these players.
