Dylan Ababou and several former PBA players have gotten another shot in the Chooks-to-Go Pilipinas 3x3
Of course, the Philippines has welcomed even more basketball with open arms.
And more than that, the Chooks-to-Go Pilipinas 3x3 is a brand new venue for many pros to get another shot.
Dylan Ababou, who found himself left out of the Columbian roster, has landed on his feet now with Pasig.
MPBL teammates Mac Cardona
and John Wilson join forces anew, still for San Juan.
The same goes for:
Karl Dehesa and Joshua Webb for Vigan
Other ex-pros competing are Ronjay Buenafe and Carlo Lastimosa (Manila) as well as Gab Banal (Bacoor), Paolo Hubalde (Valenzuela), and Jondan Salvador (Marikina).
The 12 pioneering teams in the league are the Bacoor Strikers, the 1Bataan, the Bulacan Kuyas, the Cebu-Max 4 Birada, the Manila Stars, the Marikina Shoemakers, the Pasig-Grindhouse Kings, the Quezon City-Zark’s Jawbreakers, the San Juan-Go for Gold Knights, the Valenzuela Classic, the Vigan Baluarte, and the Zamboanga Valientes.
There will be six legs in the first conference which will start on February 16 in SM Megamall.
Throughout the first conference, teams will be ranked according to the point system set by FIBA and the top four automatically gain a quarterfinals berth.
In the end, at stake will be the President’s Cup trophy as well as PhP 1 Million
The President’s Cup champion will then have a chance to represent the country in the FIBA 3x3 World Tour.
