C'mon, this is basic marketing 101. The NBA has carefully crafted it's image as an association and the only control it has to safe guard it is to sanction these events. Can you imagine if one of these players gets hurt - incl. KL and DD, how would you feel then and who pays and insurance and all sorts of legalities. Or what happens if there's an incident or accusation of some sort of impropriety? Would be a nightmare. If the Philippines was planning this as NBA players vs then they should have done things right.

Totally agree with the association on this one.
