How much does it cost to go to Mall of Asia NBA basketball game? – at that time sold some seats for as high as P25,000 even as the published rates only ranged from P350 to P5,700.
"Our game in Manila is an exciting opportunity to connect with the passionate basketball fans in the Philippines and across Southeast Asia," said NBA Commissioner David Stern.
Details regarding the release and prices of tickets were not immediately available although SM Prime Holdings, Inc. president Hans Sy promised to "thresh out" the matter in a couple of weeks.
Sy, who broached the plan with Stern in an NBA All Star Game in Orlando, Florida, last year, said he had no participation in the selection of teams.
The game is part of the NBA's comprehensive global games schedule that will have eight NBA teams play in eight cities in six countries this October.
