The half brothers were just to much for the other teams specially in the championship game where they outlasted an All-Filipino squad, Team Sta. Rosa via 27-20 in front of hundreds of people in Nagtahan Bridge Court.

They edged Willie Miller-led G3 to make the finals due to superior quotient, flaunted an outstanding shooting and ball handling skills while defending Team Sta. Rosa’s three point shooting which is their bread and butter throughout the competition.

 

Their 2 other members who contibuted good numbers as well are Nigerian, Obinna Ezeike and Filipino, Kitt Balmori.

Red Bull Reign also presented a Slam Dunk Competition which won by High-flyer David Carlos.
He was just too much for other dunkers as he jump over a motorcycle for a one-handed windmill dunk and leaping over two people in his final dunk.
