BINAN--It's the big men's turn to razzle and dazzle the full length of the court as they will headline the PBA All-Star Obstacle Challenge on May 25.

Leading the pack is the ever ageless Asi Taulava of NLEX.

Joining him are fellow veterans Sonny Thoss (Alaska), Raymond Aguilar (Ginebra), Kelly Nabong (GlobalPort), Ken Bono (Meralco), Doug Kramer (Phoenix), Beau Belga (Rain Or Shine), and Yancy De Ocampo (San Miguel).

Taking the fight for the young guns are Blackwater's Poy Erram, Columbian's Russel Escoto, Magnolia's Aldrech Ramos, and TNT's Yousef Taha.

The said event, along with the three-point shootout and the slam dunk contest, will happen at the Batangas Sports Center in Batangas City as part of the second leg of the PBA All-Star Week.
