    LG reignites an old rivalry with Asian Basketball Showdown II: Ginebra vs. LG Sakers

    Korea’s LG Sakers and Barangay Ginebra gear up for a battle of the ages

    It's that time of the year again for rejoicing with fellow basketball fans as the arguably most famous professional basketball team in the Philippines - Barangay Ginebra will face a familiar foe that's known for being a team composed of deadly shooters, Korean Basketball League's LG Sakers.

    Five years after their last meeting, Ginebra is looking to avenge their 81-76 loss to LG Sakers. And I'm sure the Ginebra fans wouldn't want to miss this collision especially now that they have Justin Brownlee.

    Dubbed as Asian Basketball Showdown, the first exhibition game between the two teams happened 5 years ago (Sep 10, 2014) and was received very well by the appreciative crowd. It was a landmark event that pitted perennial crowd favorites in their respective leagues. The LG Sakers is one of the most well-supported teams in the whole of South Korea while Barangay Ginebra is a pillar in Philippine sporting history. To have these two teams face against each other is a dream come true for every fan of basketball.

    While the LG Sakers bested Barangay Ginebra in their first foray, the Filipino squad is determined to pull out all the stops to ensure an enjoyable game for the crowd and hopefully, get a win in home court.

    A big fan of basketball himself, LG Electronics Philippines Managing Director Inkwun Heo says “In the spirit of celebration of the 70th anniversary of South Korean and Philippine diplomatic relations, we want to treat Filipinos to an experience they’ll never forget. ”

    Just like the first showdown, the exhibition game is still a free event courtesy of LG Philippines. To find out how to get a free ticket, click this Asian Basketball Showdown 2 for the full mechanics.

    Asian Basketball Showdown II happens on September 17th, 6PM at the Smart Araneta Coliseum.
