THE globalization of basketball is taking leaps and bounds in the country.
And at the peak of the summer season, Nerlens Noel of the Phildalpia 76ers and WNBA legend Ruth Riley travelled to Manila to lead a basketball clinic that aimed to pick talents for the 2015 Junior NBA and Junior WNBA All Stars.
Dubbed the Jr. NBA and Jr. WNBA Philippine Training Camp, the event supported by the telecommunications giant Globe kicked off last Friday at the Philippine International Convention Center.
The event at the same time promoted sportsmanship, team work, positive attitude and respect.
Meanwhile, the NBA and Globe Telecom signed a comprehensive multi-year partnership that involved offering customers exciting NBA-related promotions and premium services.
These include the introduction of the NBA League Pass which gives Postpain, Prepaid, TM and Tattoo subscribers access to live and on-demand NBA games on their tablet, mobile phones and desktop computers.
With the NBA League Pass, customers can also enjoy crystal clear HD video, multi-game viewing modes, and an integrated game stats module. All games previously played during the current and prior NBA season will also be available through the game archives.
“We are aware of how much Filipinos love basketball. As one of NBA’s major partners in the Philippines, we are throwing our support to the training camp, knowing it will surely bring the game closer to the hearts of our customers,” said Globe senior vice president for consumer broadband Gilbert Simpao
