Devance pokes fun at teammates, reveals Taulava, Slaughter, Yap can’t dance
PUERTO PRINCESA, Philippines — Sure, James Yap, Asi Taulava and Greg Slaughter are stars in their own right on the basketball court, but they have a lot to prove to their fellow All-Star Joe Devance on the dance floor.
The Purefoods Hotshots Fil-American forward claims Yap, Taulava and Slaughter have two left feet.
“It’s just really on getting everybody on the same page. Me and Cyrus’ dance steps is a little bit above of everyone else,” said Devance, who has been working with another All-Star Cyrus Baguio in choreographing the South team’s performance in the dance off.
“Asi can’t dance, big Greg can’t dance, who else, James Yap can’t dance,” Devance said, poking fun at his teammates. “So we gotta get them on board. But it’s just really about me and Cyrus teaching those guys our dance steps. Picking up the level of their game to us.”
The anticipated dance off, which has become a tradition every year, between the North and South squads will be held before the All-Star Game tip off at 5 p.m.
Whether or not Devance claims are true, the fans will have to see it for themselves.
