    Sprite NBA 3 on 3 In The Philippines: The First NBA 3 on 3 in Our Country

    Ballerspinas.com covered the Sprite NBA 3 on 3 Event 2011.

    To discover the joy in 3 on 3 basketball, to help the youth enhance their 3 on 3 basketball skills, and to realize the youth's passion for 3 on 3 basketball, these are the 3 essential aims of the very first Sprite NBA 3 on 3 event that started yesterday at the Mall of Asia Music Hall.

    The NBA partnered with Sprite in staging this momentous 3 on 3 event in the Philippines. The organizers of this event gave the reasons why Sprite was chosen to be the partner of the NBA in doing this event. They said:

    "Sprite is the perfect partner of the NBA for this inaugural event because its refreshingly clear attitude embodies the youth spirit of fun and love for the game. Through the years, Sprite has refreshed drinkers with its familiar green dimpled bottle and refreshing clear, crisp lemon-lime taste. Sprite has a heritage of being the voice of clarity among the youth. Today, Sprite is the #1 lemon-lime Sparkling beverage in the Philippines. It continues to refresh millions of Filipino teens with its hit of sudden refreshment that truly quenches their thirst so they can be refreshingly clear with themselves. Be Refreshingly Clear with Sprite."

    Ballerspinas was very fortunate to be invited in the event. I saw one of NBA's most hard working player, Horace Grant along with the New York City Dancers. What I like about Mr. Horace Grant is that he's really cool and he smiles a lot.

    Horace Grant was the biggest star who is in the event. He shared some important lessons to the up and coming stars of the Philippine Basketball, the Energen Pilipinas Under 16 Boys' Basketball team. The whole team was present in the event. These people made the event more colorful.

    I also saw my idol, Olsen Racela who is now the coach of the Energen Pilipinas Under 16 team.

    The Sprite NBA 3 on 3 event captured the attention of the basketball fans in the Mall of Asia because it was really a big event. Here's a top view picture of the event. People flocked into the Music Hall to watch the games.

    The event will run from July 1 up to July 3, Sunday. If you want to catch the championship games just visit Mall of Asia Music Hall tomorrow.

    Here's a video of one of the elimination games of the NBA 3 on 3.
