    Unsanctioned "game". Apparently once you join the NBA players can't play basketball without league approval even if its for charity. Doesn't sound draconian at all.

    Meh, big deal. Its better than getting fined for shouting at the refs, this time you get fined for a basketball clinic for the fans in the Philippines. Im okay with that, and all those multi-millionaire athletes should be too.

    I gotta say, that's very hard to believe. Do you have any kind of source?

    NBA cares when you get 150k.
    Myself (March 2014):
    The raptors are a tremendous young team and will win a championship in the following five years.

    It makes sense, this one seems like an event that's on the up-and-up but if you don't have rules against such things it's not long before you have your current players doing exhibition games in North Korea or doing private games like something out of The Two Escobars.

    Wow, that seems like a ton of money to be paying a bunch of guys for a two day event. I watched the video RR put on FB yesterday when they were getting introduced to a studio audience, that shit was awkward as hell with everybody having mics and like 4 or 5 of the hosts talking at the same time!

    When they get fined, does the money just go to the NBA? This sounds like an NCAA type of thing..

    Tough to pass the sniff test on the 150K per guy.
    If your a charity, starting half a mil in the hole is not a great strategy to begin raising funds unless your finance minister for the Ontario Liberal party. Its not like there is a whack of well heeled types in Manilla that are so basketball crazy that they can throw big coin at this type of an event.
    NBA cares alright (smirk)

    Basketball is like a religion in the Philippines. And didn't see any actual quote that it was for a charity. Might be just these guys looking for an extra buck and to have some fun.

    Ross tweeted this about a week ago. DeRozan tweeted the same thing but its gone now lol.

    I've heard about this MVP dude before. His group a couple of years ago was trying to buy the Sacramento Kings. He's a multi billionaire, one of the richest man in the world.
