James Yap has had a whirlwind couple of days recently, to say the least.

The seasoned sharpshooter and two-time Philippine Basketball Association (PBA) Most Valuable Player had an impressive showing in his team's semis matchup against Barangay Ginebra, even hitting a game-winning dagger in one of his outings.

Unfortunately, his team bowed out to the Kings in the series, 3-1.

He's got a beautiful family to go home to, having just welcomed his second child, Francesca Michelle.

Plus he has a kickass motorcycle to ride during his time off the hardwood.
