It's not everyday that a King graces us with his presence, which was the case when LeBron James returned to the Philippines for the third time.

After not being able to make it last year, the three-time NBA champion and four-time Most Valuable Player made the most out of this visit through an exhibition game between Gilas Pilipinas old heads and young guns.

Reppin' the Gilas Young Blood: Kiefer Ravena, Ray Parks, Matthew Wright, Raymond Almazan, Roger Pogoy, Baser Amer, Raymar Jose, Mike Tolomia, Almond Vosotros, and Kai Sotto.

Reppin' the Gilas OG: Jayson Castro, Ranidel de Ocampo, Gabe Norwood, Japeth Aguilar, Paul Lee, LA Tenorio, Jared Dillinger, Gary David, Jeff Chan, and Jimmy Alapag.

But first, an entrance fit for royalty: a booming drumline amplifying DJ Mars Miranda's beats, which was drowned by roaring fans when James emerged from the makeshift stage at the MOA Arena.

"I said two years ago I'll be coming back, but last year some unfortunate things happened," the greatest player in the world said. "But I'm back."

For the most part, the 30-minute showcase was close yet played out like an All-Star game, highlighted by De Ocampo's antics, Aguilar's dunkfest (at least before Sotto hit him with a Dream Shake), and the Cadets' shooting.

Things only got interesting with five minutes left, when the NBA legend finally entered the game to the crowd's delight and joined the younger Gilas contingent. He woke up the audience with a three-point shot, followed by a crazy half-court alley-oop to Parks.

Final score was 92-71, in favor of the Young Blood, which didn't matter after James unleashed a flurry of rim-rattlers, including a ridiculous windmill jam to punctuate the festivities.

Greatness filled the air when James ended, "Thank you for being a part of the tour. Hope you guys continue to welcome me, because I would love to come back as well," See you next year, 'Bron (hopefully)!
