The Terrific 12 is the first Asia League event to feature a standalone musical performance. The star-
studded musical lineup is consistent with the scale of the tournament and the star power of its
athletes, which will include foreign import players from the NBA. This distinguishes The Terrific 12
from Summer Super 8, which focused on supporting the long-term growth of Asian basketball by
giving opportunities for coaches and referees to develop professionally through specialized clinics, in
addition to giving younger players a chance to hone their skills in a premium competition
