I can tell you one thing, Manny Pacquiao is a better basketball player than he is a singer. With that being said, there must not be a lot of basketball talent in the Philippines if he is going in the first round of the draft.
Then again probably just a marketing ploy. I wonder if Manny actually plays. He loves basketball as much as boxing and compares his game to Steve Nash believe it or not.
