It was supposed to be Manny Pacquiao’s show. But LA Revilla stole the thunder from The People’s Champ, leading Kia Sorento to an 80-66 win over Blackwater Elite on PBA Opening Day. Pacquiao did not attempt a single shot, and only played seven minutes in a game that was all Kia after the halftime break.
In the second game, Ginebra finally played up to expectations and defeated Talk ‘N Text, 101-81. Who are we kidding though, PBA Opening Day is really about the muses. So hello there, Ellen Adarna, welcome to the PBA.

Alice Dixon is just way too hot. Of all the muses earlier this afternoon, she’s the most alluring.

That ball control and floor spreading from LA is what DLSU missed this season.

LA Revilla is making a name for himself, and will probably get a signed pair of boxing gloves from his coach after this game.
