MANILA, Philippines – Once again, the PBA warm-ups caused quite a buzz and much excitement with Manny Pacquiao at the center of attention.

The senator, reactivated just a day ago in lieu of injured starting guard LA Revilla (broken nose), suited up and joined the Mahindra Enforcer on the court for warm-ups before facing the Alaska Aces on Wednesday, August 3.



 

The Filipino boxing legend practiced his free throws, 3-pointers, pull-up jumpers, drives to the basket – all while accommodating selfie requests from courtside fans in between.



 

Pacquiao was fresh from a Senate session early in the day. He is also set to play in the All-Star Blitz Game on Friday, August 5, taking Revilla’s place.



 

Pacquiao was the first playing coach of two-year-old team Mahindra, and played a total of just 39 minutes in 6 games in the PBA. He has made only one of his 13 total field goal attempts and last played a PBA game two conferences ago in November 2015. – Rappler.com
