Filipino hoops legend Jimmy Alapag claimed the NBA Summer League title with the Sacramento Kings.

Jimmy Alapag got his first taste of NBA success after the Sacramento Kings dominated the Boston Celtics, 100-67, to claim the Summer League championship on Wednesday (PHT).

The Kings, who finished the tournament with a 5-0 record, got a game-high 21 points from Louis King who was named MVP of the championship game. Jahmi'us Ramsey chipped in 16 for Sacramento, which won its first Summer League title since 2014.
