There is a new team to watch out for in the coming season of the PBA 3×3 Lakas ng Tatlo competition as it promises to make an impact to the league in a flash!
Express delivery service giant J&T Express Philippines unveiled its official roster of basketball players during the official announcement made in a public and media event, the J&T Express Dunk Fest in Pasig City recently.
Vice President of J&T Express Philippines Zoe Chi said the newly fostered partnership with the Philippine Basketball Association marks an exciting chapter for the company, “We are thrilled that our company’s motivation chant, “Laban J&T!” will now be heard not only within the courts of PBA but also in the homes of Filipino basketball fans and far beyond.”
The J&T Express Basketball team is composed of basketball giants Keith Datu, Marvin Hayes, Robin Rono, Joseph Sedurifa, and Jeric Teng. The coaching team will be headed by 3×3 top athlete Coach Ryan Monteclaro.
Part of the highlights of the event was a jersey signing ceremony by the J&T Express Chief Executive Officer Mr. Dean Ding, J&T Express Vice President Ms. Zoe Chi, PBA 3×3 Chairman Mr. Richard Bachmann, and the J&T Express Basketball team.
Chi also shared that the express delivery company’s new venture with PBA was inspired by its employees’ common love for basketball, “to all our hardworking employees— from Manila region, from Urdaneta, Dagupan, Cabuyao, Laguna, Albay, Samar, and all other regions, from our directors, managers, supervisors, call centers, sorters, riders, drivers, HR, legal, procurement, IT, sales and etc.—this is all for you. Apart from our shared dedication to our work, we understand that our love for basketball is what unites us all.”
Last month, J&T Express held its very own Basketball Cup in which different basketball teams organized by J&T regional teams nationwide competed for head to head for the winning title. The title was clinched by the J&T Express Eastern Visayas basketball team. All-star players from the Basketball Cup got the opportunity to play with the J&T Express Basketball team as among the highlights of the Dunk Fest.
The PBA 3×3 Lakas ng Tatlo will kickoff on September 10, 2022 at the Robinsons Antipolo. Game runs and replays will be shown on CIGNAL TV, TV5, One Sports, and the Smart GigaPlay App.
Game highlights, best plays and behind the scenes of the J&T Express Basketball team will also be posted at the official J&T Express Facebook, Instagram and Tiktok accounts.
