Going beyond basketball
In addition to our basketball coverage, I’ve decided to take you all on a journey through my adventures in Manila as well. Join me as I race to get here on time. Then follow me as I make a visit to an important cultural site. Needless to say, I also tried out the local fast food. There’s far more to come on this journey.
