North All-Star’s athleticism opposite South team’s heft and height.
That’s the storyline in the coming PBA All-Star game on March 31 in Calasiao, Pangasinan.
After more than a month of voting among league fans, LA Tenorio, Paul Lee, and Calvin Abueva were named as part of the North’s starting unit, while the South will rely on the Twin Towers combination of June Mar Fajardo and Greg Slaughter.
Gunner Marcio Lassiter and Japeth Aguilar complete the North line-up.
James Yap, Mark Barroca, and Scottie Thompson meanwhile, round out the rest of South’s starting roster.
Thompson and Barroca were the top vote getters among fans in the last two editions of the All-Stars, respectively.
This year’s All-Star has reverted back to its old format of holding the games in just a single venue.
The festivities are scheduled from March 29-31.
For the last two seasons, the league had brought the All-Star weekend nationwide, hopping from Luzon, Visayas to Mindanao.
