Preserving Sports History in Video Games

Who would have thought that you can do history conservation in video games? Well I tried to recreate a defunct professional basketball league that almost caused the downfall of the well-established Philippine Basketball Association. I was interviewed by BuhayBasket about the collaborative project that I did.

When the ABA battled the NBA for basketball supremacy, the former folded but it left a lasting legacy in the sport. The MBA had the same untimely end but PBA never accepted the existence of a rival league nor mentioned it by name officially. That is why it is my interest to tell their story and relive its glory days now that only grainy highlight films remain.
