IN MEMES: The best, and funniest, of 2015 PBA All-Star Weekend
MANILA, Philippines – Maybe it was the smallest PBA ballers, widely referred to as "minions," soaring and slamming. Maybe it was last year's Slam Dunk champ Justin Melton throwing it down hard... 10 feet away from the rim. Or maybe it was Joe Devance channeling his inner troll.
Whatever it was, this year's eventful PBA All-Star Weekend spawned some pretty hilarious memes online that left us scrolling, and laughing, endlessly.
Relive the best and funniest moments of the 2015 All-Star showcase through these memes. Let's enter the creative minds of PBA fans, shall we?
The Terrence Romeo Show
Terrence Romeo just cannot win over anybody, can he?
He drops 50 points to try and carry the Sophomores over the Rookies, he's the villain.
He settles for 30 points and helps deliver the underdog North All-Stars to victory, and he's still the bad guy.
This meme, though, explains exactly why Romeo won the All-Star Game MVP over Calvin Abueva, who scored more points than Romeo.
To be fair, Calvin Abueva did have a pretty neat statline.
It was everybody's dream come true: point guards punishing the rim.
The Rookies vs Sophomores game Friday was truly in a class of its own. The young guns provided high entertainment value and innovation when the tables turned and the big guys "assisted" the small guys for some nasty throwdowns.
Arwind Santos was a proud papa.
Justin Melton's spectacular dunk attempt
Remember that one time when Justin Melton attempted a blindfolded dunk?

Yeah, that's pretty much how Melton will be remembered for this particular edition of the PBA All-Stars. He made it on CNN and ESPN. He even made it on Shaqtin' A Fool! Oh wait...
He did go places, though.
Even Daniel Orton found it hilarious.
The sarcasm is high on this one.
It's quite clear that Joe Devance wins this year's Ultimate Troller award. I am not exactly sure how anybody could dispute it.
Meanwhile, over at the Barangay Ginebra camp...
Highlight of the Weekend
Amid the fun times, the highlight of this year's All-Stars is definitely Jimmy Alapag's jersey retirement ceremony.
For all the laughter we got, there were tears to go with it.
