Bong Go, the special assistant to President Rodrigo Duterte, will compete in a 3-point shootout side event when Digos, Davao del Sur hosts the first stop of the PBA all-star game series on May 23.

According to the PBA website, Go will compete against Allan Caidic, Chris Tiu, Terrence Romeo and others.

"Sana pagbigyan niyo ako," said Go, a fan of outside shooters such as Caidic and Atoy Co.

Go added that he is eyeing organizing a nationwide 3-point shootout at the barangay level. 

"Maraming players na hindi na ganoon ka-competitive yung katawan, pero may mga kamay pa," he said during a talk with sportswriters at Araneta Coliseum on Sunday.

"Para sa akin, 'yun ang mga bigyan natin ng chance to excel."
