The Talk ‘N Text KaTropa is scheduled for a head-to-head game against the Liaoning Flying Leopards at 9:00 P.M. on September 17, 2019 live from Macao’s Tap Seac Multi-sports Pavilion, Macau, China.
The Macau based basketball tournament known as “The Terrific 12” is back for its 2019 installment. For its fourth salvo, it’s the battle between the KaTropa and the Flying Leopards.
TNT Katropa owned the number one spot of the 2019 PBA Commissioner’s Cup after their elimination round.
Though they fell short against the eventual champion, the San Miguel Beermen but their small-ball offense and three-point shooting were so effective in their second conference campaign.
In this tournament, their Best Import recipient Terrence Jones won’t be on their side but they now have another NBA veteran in KJ McDaniels.
McDaniels was an NBA veteran who had stints with the Philadelphia 76ers, Houston Rockets, and Brooklyn Nets.
He will be also the import of the KaTropa in the upcoming 2019 PBA Governors’ Cup.
Speaking about a player with NBA experience, the Liaoning Flying Leopards will feature Lance Stephenson who last played with the Los Angeles Lakers.
Apart from Stephenson, another NBA veteran will be on the side of the Flying Leopards and that’s Salah Mejri.
Liaoning will also feature players who are a member of their national squad. These are Guo Ailun and Zhao Jewel.
Ailun and Castro will renew their rivalry for the best point guard in Asia.
