2019 PBA All-Star: North’s rendition of Dante Gulapa dance enough to beat South in showdown

Toronto Raptors superstar Kawhi Leonard nails nine 3’s in a row!

The North All-Stars were able to celebrate two huge wins in the final day of the 2019 PBA All-Star Game last night at the Calasiao Sports Complex in Pangasinan.

Aside from winning the All-Star Game, North was able to beat their southern counterparts in the dance-off held before the main game.

Pingris, who wasn’t able to suit up for the All-Star Game due to injury, made up for his absence by stealing the spotlight and starring in the team’s version of internet sensation Dante Gulapa’s ‘Eagle Dance’.

North won P100,000 for emerging as winners in the dance-off.

On the other hand, South bagged P50,000 after a runner-up finish that saw them perform their own version of the ‘Eagle Dance’, too.

Meanwhile, in the PBA All-Star 3×3 contest, CJ Perez led a furious Team Codiñera come-from-behind win over Team Patrimonio, 22-19.

Down 12-19, Perez took over and drained four straight two-pointers as their foes, composed of four-time PBA MVP Alvin Patrimonio, Robert Bolick, Javee Mocon and Mike Nieto, failed to close out in the clutch.

Isaac Go later knocked down a two from the left win to give cage legend Jerry Codiñera’s squad the win.

Perez and Go were also flanked by Matt Nieto.
