MANILA, Philippines – The Boston Celtics’ All-Star point guard Rajon Rondo is in Manila for the first time as a prelude to the Philippine leg of the Red Bull King of the Rock tournament, which kicks off next year.

Rondo arrived in the country Monday afternoon after spending a few days in Taiwan, where he watched the finls of their King of the Rock competition.

The King of the Rock tournament is a one-on-one streetball contest. The 2012 version will feature more international talent, with streetballers from 25 countries all competing for the honor of being crowned “King.”

The “King of the Rock” tournament will begin in the Philippines in 2013, and Rondo is in town to catch a glimpse of the country’s best basketball talent. -- ANC, August 28, 2012.
