Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao will get a chance to see Chooks-to-Go Gilas Pilipinas.
In an unprecedented move, the annual PBA All-Star Weekend has been extended to six days with three different hosts, the league announced Sunday evening. Moreover, instead of a North versus South format, this year’s All-Star Game will pit the National Team against the best from Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao.
Chooks Gilas members who are natives to the hosts’ island group will join their respective teams during the annual showcase.
Cagayan de Oro will host the opening day on Wednesday, April 26. Expected to join the Mindanao squad are Manok ng Bayan’s Jiovani Jalalon, Mike Tolomia, and Mac Belo.
Second day of festivities will take place at the Quezon Convention Center in Lucena City on Friday, April 28. Chooks Gilas pool members Terrence Romeo, Paul Lee, Calvin Abueva, and Japeth Aguilar will beef up the Luzon squad.
Lucena will also host the side events like the slam dunk contest and the three-point shootout.
The All-Star extravaganza will culminate on Sunday, April 30 in Cebu. National Team mainstay June Mar Fajardo headlines the Visayan All-Stars together with Roger Pogoy.
Handa na ba kayong makita nang personal ang ating mga Manok ng Bayan mga ka-Chooks?
