KUALA LUMPUR: The Ninetology Malaysia Basketball Carnival 2013 is back for its second time with two tournaments (Ninetology 3 Star and Ninetology 7 Star) and the Ninetology All Star exhibition game.

The well-known Ninetology All Star exhibition game will provide basketball fans a platform to witness world-renowned professional basketball players up close, in Malaysia. Six legendary NBA players will be playing in the Ninetology All Star exhibition game during the carnival, as well as sharing their experiences with local basketball players and fans.

Under the US Pro Basketball Alumni team (PBAA), the group of six former NBA players and four renowned international basketball freestyle players will compete with a specially selected MJ Life Asia Basketball All-Star team on November 2, 2013 at Stadium Putra Bukit Jalil.
Last year, our local professional team, Westport Malaysia Dragons was against the PBAA team.

He is celebrated for his off one foot between legs variations, between-the-legs dunk over a car and his windmill over eight people.

With the selection of 10 best players of which two are Malaysians, the MJ Life Asia Basketball All-Star team are ready for a fight against the alumni team. The MJ Life Asia Basketball All-Star team will feature FIBA Asia Championship gold medallists, Jaber Rouzbahani and Aren Davoudi from Iran, Jun Iwasa (Japan), Rommel Adducul (Philippines), Nino Canaleta (Philippines), Folarin Deola D’brown (Nigeria) and Yang Yu Ming (Taiwan).

The last three vacant slots in the team will be filled by New Zealand Hoopnation Slam Dunk King, the Most Valuable Player of the Malaysia National Basketball League 2013 and the Most Valuable player of the MABA/Agromate Agong Cup National Basketball Championship 2013.
