Great book and a great performance
What did you love best about Pacific Rims?
The book tells an amazing story. The author exaggerates slightly at some points but I found myself agreeing with many of his insights and I think that he really made a strong effort to integrate and understand Philippine basketball as well as Philippine society.
What does Scott Aiello bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
I felt that he had a solid performance and even read the Filipino names and words quite well.
