People's champ Manny Pacquiao's next match will be in Dubai... but not the match you're thinking.
The PBA is coming back with another set of promising games, 6 months after an exciting double-header in Dubai.
Newly-appointed coach Tim Cone, Alex Compton and Manny Pacquiao will be leading the charge for their respective teams.
Barangay Ginebra San Miguel, Alaska Aces and Mahindra Enforcers (formerly KIA) are expected to bring in new faces in their squads as the annual rookie draft is still to happen in August. Trades are also in the offing.
Barangay Ginebra is travelling to Dubai for the 5th time, while the Aces and the Enforcers will play their first out-of-country official games.
The league's winningest coach, who has just moved from Purefoods to Ginebra, is expected to tweak the line-up of the most popular ball club in the Philippines.
The crowd would surely be delighted the moment playing-coach Manny Pacquiao suits up and enters the court to play.
Last year's Philippine Cup and Governors Cup runner-up Alaska Aces remains a perennial contender. They are also expected to have solid followings in Dubai, especially for the prolific beast, Calvin Abueva.
Clique Events, the same organization responsible for the success of Ginebra, Rain or Shine and Globalport staging last May, is the one spearheading this project once again.
Games would most likely be scheduled by December this year. Please keep an eye on this post in the next few days for complete and final details.
