Manny Pacquiao's jam-packed maiden trip, dishdashing in UAE

The legend's maiden visit was primarily for his basketball team in PBA's game but Pacman had a packed schedule from the moment he landed in Dubai.

Pacquiao was the star attraction at the PBC 2016 where he lead Mahindra Enforcers as player-coach.

The Mahindra Enforcers, Alaska Aces and Barangay Ginebra, considered among the best basketball teams in the Philippines, drew huge crowds of Filipino basketball enthusiasts on November 6 and 7 at Al Wasl Sports Club.

Predictably, Pacquiao was the main draw. Pacquiao played just 7 minutes of the first quarter and his every move, pass or jump was met with loud cheers.
