KL Dragons Vs Brunei Barracudas

We headed into town yesterday to catch the KL Dragons kick off their Asean Basketball League campaign at the MABA Stadium against the Brunei Barracudas. We arrived just as the teams we're warming up and the energy and atmosphere at the venue was pretty wild. A number of corporate figures, celebs and socialites were spotted courtside, all rooting for KL's first professional basketball team. Check out these pics right here.

The teams unofficial hype man, getting the spectators riled up.

The Brunei team clearly dominated the first three quarters and at one point had a 30 point lead. The fourth quarter was much better though, as KL attempted a comeback and the game ended 76-94 in favour of Brunei.

See you court side on the 31st for our second home game.

Despite the loss, the KL Dragons have much to be proud off and the same goes to the ABL. Its really great to see people coming together, showing their love for their city and this is no doubt a start to a new chapter in Malaysian basketball. Shout outs to team owners Datuk Wira Dani and Mr. Rueben Emir Gnanalingam, ABL chairman Datuk Tony Fernandez and everybody involved in making this happen.

ALL THE BEST FOR THE NEXT GAME, GO KL!!!
