by Jonathan Santiago and James Ham
Who is Manny Pangilinan?  Rafe Bartholomew of Grantland and author of Pacific Rims, a book on the history of the Philippines love affair with the game of basketball, joins us on the Cowbell Kingdom Podcast to shed some light on the wealthy Filipino business magnate. An excerpt from the conversation where Bartholomew discussed the All-Star Weekend that featured Kobe Bryant, Kevin Durant, Chris Paul, Derrick Rose and Tyreke Evans that Pangilinan organized for the Philippines last summer.
That was something that when I first heard they were planning I said it's never going to happen.  It just costs too much money, it's too crazy - it sounded like spin to me.  And then when it happened, it flipped the script on everyone where it's like "Wow, they really do have the money to pull off a lot more that we thought that they were willing to do."
