Masaya and sobrang blessed na ako ang napili na cover ng SLAM. Nagpapasalamat din ako sa Titan at sa SLAM sa pagpili sa akin -- June Mar Fajardo
Five-time PBA Most Valuable Player June Mar Fajardo flashed a wide smile as he removed the black cloth covering the cardboard poster of SLAM Philippines’ latest issue.
The 6-foot-10 San Miguel Beer big man was the solo cover of the magazine pictured wearing his own limited edition Titan x Kraken shirt.
“Masaya and sobrang blessed na ako ang napili na cover ng SLAM. Nagpapasalamat din ako sa Titan at sa SLAM sa pagpili sa akin,” said the six-time PBA champion Friday during the launch of his shirt and formal unveiling of his magazine cover at Titan Fort.

The behemoth said that it’s his second time to grace the cover of the magazine but was his first time to be featured solo.
“Siyempre na-excite ako but at the same time kinakabahan din ako. Dati na-feature din kami ng Slam pero kasama ko ang Gilas. Iba ngayon na ako lang mag-isa,” he said.
Fajardo was grateful for the opportunity but it was something he never really expected.
“Nakakatuwa. ‘Di ko ini-expect na aabot ako sa ganito, sobrang blessed,” said Fajardo, who just recently helped Gilas Pilipinas snatch a berth in the 2019 FIBA World Cup in China in August.
Fans lined up to buy his shirt and were given a chance to have their magazine copies signed by Fajardo. As an added treat to the first 25 fans who bought his shirt, Fajardo raffled off three signed shoes from his personal collection.
