It was a star-studded opening ceremony for the Philippine Basketball Association (PBA) as they marked the commencement of their 44th season at the Philippine Arena in Bulacan last Sunday.

As the roster of teams entered the stage, all eyes fell on their gorgeous muses decked out in their equally fabulous ensembles, including, among others, beauty queens Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach, who represented the Barangay Ginebra San Miguel, and Miss International 2016 Kylie Versoza, who led the San Miguel Beermen.

Meanwhile, actresses and cover girls Yam Concepcion and Sam Pinto stood out with their beauties among players of Phoenix Pulse Fuel Masters and TNT Katropa, respectively.

As for teams who booked fellow athletes as their muse, the NLEX Road Warriors went with professional Alyssa Valdez, while Blackwater Elite had volleyball player Myla Pablo and Olympic swimmer Jasmine Alkhaldi take over.

However, the real surprise was when the one and only Megastar Sharon Cuneta also joined the league, looking every inch regal in a matching blue suit to represent the Magnolia Hotshots Pambansang Manok.

The other muses were young stars Klea Pineda (Alaska Aces) and Kelley Day (Columbian Dyip), Grand International Philippines 2018 Eva Patalinjug (Meralco Bolts), Mutya ng Pilipinas-Tourism International 2018 Aya Fernandez (NorthPort Batang Pier), and Mutya ng Pilipinas Finalist Anie Uson (Rain or Shine Elasto Painters).
