Chris Ellis of Brgy. Ginebra. PBA/Nuki SabioAs expected, Barangay Ginebra San Miguel rookie Chris Ellis won the PBA slam dunk title, but not before a challenge from teammate Elmer Espiritu.

Apart from winning his first dunk crown, Ellis was able to pay tribute to PBA legend and Ginebra team manager Samboy Lim, who he considers his mentor.

“Samboy Lim is very influential to me. He keeps telling me that I need to get better every game, attack the rim more aggressively. I was able to watch some of the highlights of his game (from YouTube),” Ellis told InterAKTV in an exclusive interview.

Ellis named his first dunk the Skywalker, in honor of the high-flying San Miguel legend. That slam earned Ellis 50 points from the judges.

He continued his dominance in the second round, scoring another perfect 50.
