It was a game well-remembered not only for the stars who played but also for the exciting and tenacious basketball action.
In fact, it seemed the All-Star Game 2018 was not a mere exhibition game of popular celebrities but a serious match between talented basketball players.
In these photos, we witness them in action—from making important free throws to perilous drives to the basket.
We see MVP Gerald Anderson directing plays, just as what a team captain should for the Blue Team, and of course outhustling opponents in those battles for the loose ball.
It seemed the Blue side really dominated the game, especially with that monster block by Gerry Acao. JC De Vera also showed incredible handles, as he ran rings around opponents, including the Red Team captain Daniel Padilla. Hashtag Ronnie Alonte likewise displayed his on-court wizardry.
Aside from their winning moves, we also see the star players go crashing to the floor due to physical play. But even so, they all accept it as part of the game.
While the Blue Team won handily, players from both teams show sportsmanship at its best!
