With five minutes left in an exhibition game — featuring past and present Gilas Pilipinas players — at the Mall of Asia Arena in Manila, LeBron James checked in for the Youngbloods and put on a dunk show for his Pinoy fans.
This stop on the “Strive For Greatness” tour was LeBron’s third time in the past five years visiting the Philippines.
“I told you guys I was gonna come back and I’m happy to be back,” LeBron said referring to his 2016 trip being cancelled. “I’m happy to be here to spend this time with you guys. There was no way I wasn’t gonna come back here to Manila. I’m happy, you guys are unbelievable. Thank you so much.”
Earlier in the day, LeBron supervised a practice featuring those players. You can click here to view photos from the practice or scroll down and watch more footage and angles of those players trying to block LeBron’s dunks.
