WATCH: Japeth dunks over June Mar in PBA All-Star Game
MANILA, Philippines – Japeth Aguilar was in full flight mode in the 2019 PBA All-Star Game as he powered the North All-Stars to a 185-170 win over the South All-Stars on Sunday, March 31.
Putting on an aerial show for the fans who trooped the Calasiao Sports Complex in Pangasinan, the high-flying forward did it all, from alley-oops, windwill slams, putback jams and reverse flushes.
One memorable dunk was simply a cut above the rest as Aguilar jumped over the 6-foot-10 June Mar Fajardo.
Aguilar failed in his first attempt before answering the fans' chants of "Isa pa! Isa pa!" by converting the dunk over Fajado.
Although playing for opposing teams, the good friends and longtime Gilas Pilipinas teammates managed to plan the highlight dunk.
"Talagang nag-team up kami doon. Noong halftime habang nanonood kami ng 3-on-3, nag-usap kami," Aguilar said. "June mar, thank you."
(We really teamed up on that one. When we were watching the 3-on-3 game, we talked about it. Thank you, June Mar.)
Aguilar finished with 32 points and was adjudged co-MVP with Arwind Santos, who also entertained the fans with his famed Spider-Man dunk. (READ: Arwind escapes fine despite Spider-Man dunk in PBA All-Star Game) – Rappler.com
