The arguably greatest NBA Player under 6 feet, the one and only Allen Iverson, will be visiting the Philippines for the 2nd time not as an active baller but a mentor and tactician.
Iverson will be coaching an elite group of street ballers who are known for their fatal dribbling skills on the basketball court. They will go against a group of Filipino ballers which might include Top UAAP and NCAA stars and PBA Legends. The AI Manila Tour dubbed as “All In” will happen at the SM Mall of Asia Arena on November 5, 2014.
Tickets prices are projected to be 6,000 Php for VIP seats, 5,000 Php for Patron, 3,500 Php for Lower Box, 2,500 Php for Upper Box and 600 Php for General Admission.
You may buy tickets at all SM Tickets branches and PC Worx Luzon branches. A portion of the proceeds will benefit Gawad Kalinga.
Former NBA MVP Iverson decided to hang his jersey last year after playing competitive basketball in the NBA for 14 seasons and after playing in Turkey for team Besiktas.
Reyes, Iverson's representative in Asia, and his US handlers, Moore Management Entertainment, recently sealed the deal with PCWorx to bring the former NBA MVP and four-time scoring champion to the country for a charity basketball game that will benefit Gawad Kalinga.
"I'm looking forward to my coming visit to Manila. I've heard a lot of good stories about the Philippines, specifically about Filipino basketball fans. See you all real soon," Iverson relayed to basketball agent Sherryl Reyes via email.
