PBA All-Star June Mar Fajardo 3 Point Challenge

PBA All-Star Big Man Fajardo Takes on 3-Point Challenge!

PBA All-Star June Mar Fajardo is ready to test his shooting skills in a surprising turn of events as he gears up for the 3-point shootout. Set to take place for the first time during the PBA All-Star Weekend, Fajardo will replace Mo Tautuaa as San Miguel Beer’s representative in this inaugural event at the University of St. La Salle Coliseum.

PBA Commissioner Willie Marcial confirmed Fajardo’s participation, revealing that the towering center himself expressed interest in joining the shootout. Cleared from a calf injury that hampered him during San Miguel Beer’s journey to clinch the PBA Commissioner’s Cup championship, Fajardo eagerly embraced this opportunity to showcase his shooting prowess.

Originally slated to participate until his injury in the Finals, Fajardo’s inclusion signals a thrilling addition to the lineup of talented shooters. “I hope I could perform well because the other participants are known for hitting a lot of outside shots,” Fajardo remarked after learning of his inclusion in the event.

Joining Fajardo in the big man edition of the shootout are players like Barangay Ginebra’s Ralph Cu, Blackwater’s Christian David, Converge’s Keith Saldivar, and other notable names from various PBA teams. This long-distance competition replaces the Slam Dunk contest in the annual extravaganza.

Meanwhile, Magnolia’s Paul Lee gears up to defend his title in the standard three-point competition against a competitive field that includes two-time winner James Yap of Blackwater. With a mix of seasoned veterans and emerging talents, the stage is set for an electrifying showdown in the three-point shootout, adding another layer of excitement to the highly anticipated PBA All-Star Weekend.
