I was lucky to be among the thousands who were able to see NBA star Lebron James at the Mall of Asia Arena last night.  Nike Philippines gave out free tickets and the capacity was reached 15 minutes after the event opened. I was assigned two first row upper box tickets.

The Cleveland Cavalier player is in Manila for a 4-day visit for the Nike Rise Beyond Belief Challenge as a guest mentor.  Nike Rise is a reality basketball program headed by Coach Chot Reyes. Twenty four streetballers were part of the program. They were then trimmed down to twelve members.
