Tall South faces speedy north five
This year’s PBA All-Star Game will be size versus speed as the quick and athletic North team clashes with the towering South squad on March 31 in Calasiao, Pangasinan.
Joining forces anew are Cebuano giants June Mar Fajardo and Greg Slaughter, who will be teaming up with James Yap, Scottie Thompson and Mark Barroca for the South.
The North All-Stars, meanwhile, will bank on star guards LA Tenorio and Paul Lee and ferocious forward Calvin Abueva.
Completing the starters for the North are sweet-shooting Marcio Lassiter and high-leaping big man Japeth Aguilar.
The PBA announced the starting lineups on Tuesday after a month of fan voting.
The league decided to return to the old format where the festivities will be held in one venue, rather than one game each in Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao.
