Asian Basketball! Korea's LG Sakers VS the Philippines' Barangay Ginebra

I was able to attend the presscon of LG Electronics last September 4, 2014 9:30 AM at the Treston Gym University Parkway District, 32nd St corner C-5 Road, Bonifacio Global City.

LG Sakers is Korea's Season Champion while Barangay Ginebra is a widely popular team among Pinoy fans.

I was happy to know that LG has been caring for the community and making an effort to help Filipinos. They also donated to the Boy's Town.

Of course I had a photo-op with the Korean athletes (who look like Koreanovela stars), the host Sam Oh, and coaches Olsen Racela and Jeff Cariaso!

We had Upper Box tickets for the September 9, 2014 6:00 PM Asian Basketball Showdown game at the Smart Araneta Coliseum.

There were exhibitions from college players prior to the game and I am impressed by the dribbling kid wonder!

Some of their celebrity endorsers talked about LG products like Maxene Magalona and Denise Laurel.

It was so exciting to watch the game live! Thunderous cheering by fans is heard throughout the Big Dome every time Barangay Ginebra makes points.

The first five (as it appeared on the big screen):

For Barangay Ginebra San Miguel- Josh Urbiztondo, Joseph Yeo, Greg Slaughter, Rodney Brondial and Mac Baracael.

For Changwon LG Sakers- Kim Si Rae, Yang Woo Sub, Davon Jefferson, Ki Seung Ho and Kim Young Hwan.

Unfortunately for the kaBarangays, it was LG Sakers' night as they were declared the Champion of this historic game!
