The last time James Harden went to the Philippines to play against a PBA All-Star team, it was 2011 and he was far from the star that he is today.

The All-Star team, coached by John Lucas, also features NBA Finals MVP Kawhi Leonard, Terrence Ross, DeMar DeRozan, Damian Lillard, Kyle Lowry and Brandon Jennings.
