    Glen Rice and Allan Caidic finally meet again - seven years after memorable exhibition game

    Mar 19, 2017
    Legendary shooters Glen Rice and Allan Caidic finally meet in an NBA event.

    EVER since he arrived in Manila, NBA legend Glen Rice has been looking for retired PBA star Allan Caidic.

    It was seven years ago that “G$” and “The Triggerman” were teammates on the Red team in the 2010 NBA Asia Challenge, an exhibition game at the Araneta Coliseum.

    Rice, the 1995 NBA three-point shootout champion who also led the NBA in three-point field goal accuracy in 1997, was left impressed after the then 47-year old Caidc hit 14 three-pointers in 24 minutes to score 54 points.

    A reunion would be nice, Rice said in previous interviews.

    Rice’s wish was granted after he finally met up with Caidic at the NBA Viewing Party and Pop-Up NBA Store event at the BHS Globe Amphitheatre on Sunday morning as part of the US league's Filipino Heritage Week celebration.

    The two-time All-Star was genuinely surprised to see Caidic whom he gave a warm embrace. Rice said earlier that he thought he wasn't going to get to reconnect with Caidic and was just planning to send a tweet as a shout out.

    Caidic gave Rice a copy of his self-titled book as a gift. The two legendary shooters talked about the featured game between the Golden State Warriors and the Milwaukee Bucks and sat down as they reconnected.

    During the day, Rice engaged a fan in a shootout on a basketball arcade game.

    At the pop-up store selling NBA merchandise, Rice said,“The Michael Jordan jersey is my favorite one!” As the prime scorer for the Miami Heat and the Charlotte Hornets, the 6-8 Rice engaged His Airness in several memorable scoring matches in the Eastern Conference.
