So it’s true. An NBA Regular Season Game or Pre-Season game (not yet sure which one of the two) between the Houston Rockets and Indiana Pacers will be held in the Philippines.
The news was confirmed by Mr. Brian Windhorst of ESPN and Chinese reporter Mr. LI Shuangfu.
Pre-Season Games usually happen during Fall Months, September-October, so most probably it’s a Pre-Season game. Let’s just wait for the official announcement of the NBA.
Negotiations are currently underway and if things go according to plan, this will be the very first NBA Pre-Season game that will happen in the Philippines.
The most probable venue of the game will be the World Class SM Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay City.
We might once again see James Harden in the flesh as he has been here before during the Smart All Star Game that was held at the Smart-Araneta Coliseum courtesy of Mr. Manny V. Pangilinan.
