    Lee ran into Caidic at the hotel lobby where they are staying in the morning of the contest and shook hands with the winner of the inaugural 3-point contest.

    "Kanina sa breakfast nakita ko yan, sabi ko 'Coach Allan, pahawak naman ng kamay mo baka manalo ako sa three-point shootout," he said of his University of the East alumnus.

    Caidic willingly obliged and wished Lee the best of luck.

    "Pangpa-suwerte daw," said Caidic, who came for the All-Star as a special judge during the slam dunk contest.

    Lee blew the competition away with a total of 28 points in the final shootout to beat out Marcio Lassiter (21) and Juami Tiongson (18) for the title and the P30K prize money.
