MANILA, Philippines – Basketball fans who grew up idolizing Allen Iverson will now get the chance to learn the fundamentals of the game, among others, under his tutelage.
A few hours before he leads a group of Ball Up (formerly known as And1) streetball All-Stars, Team Gawad Kalinga, in the All In game, Iverson will run a basketball clinic for adults from ages 20 and above from 3 to 5 pm at the Mall of Asia Arena on November 5.
Registration is currently ongoing until October 25. Those interested may call PCworx at (02) 575-1520.
“It’s always a privilege for me to go out there and share my love and passion for basketball,” Iverson said in a phone interview.
"This won’t be just an ordinary basketball clinic, I’ll be sharing with them not just my knowledge in basketball, but also a part of myself. This is my way of saying thank you to my fans who stood by me through the years.”
The clinic fee is at P5,000 ($112) including snacks, a t-shirt, a certificate, a free ticket to watch the clinic for guests, and a free general admission ticket to watch the All In game where Team Gawad Kalinga - led by Iverson as a coach - will go up against Team PCWorx.
Tickets for the All In event are still available with proceeds going to Gawad Kalinga. – Rappler.com
