IN PHOTOS: PBA's 40 Greatest Players ceremony
MANILA, Philippines – PBA players then and now gathered together as the league honored its 40 Greatest Players to commemorate the league's rich 40-year history on Wednesday, April 8 in the Newport Performing Arts Theatre at Resorts World Manila.
Instead of wearing their mother teams' jerseys, some current PBA players looked dapper in their suit and tie while others even participated in a mini-fashion show donning outfits fitted for the summer weather.
In the program, the PBA also unveiled its plans for the fans this year, which include the production of dog tags, and championship ring replicas; a PBA game app and a PBA app built-in on the myPhone; a PBA documentary to be shown in cinemas; a PBA magazine called Life; and a PBA branded credit card in partnership with the Bank of Commerce.
Relive the event in these photos taken by Josh Albelda.
Of course, the greatest players took their time to also pose in photos alongside each other lauding each one's contirbution to the league and Philippine basketball.
With my TNT brothers @jaywill_17 and @kelwilliams21dot at the PBA's 40 Greatest ceremony. Blessed with the opportunity to go to to war with these guys thru the years, and thankful we could all join a very special Basketball Fraternity together. #Family #PBAs40Greatest #WeGotRings #ItsJustDifferent #NothingGivenEverythingEarned
