Justin Brownlee was awesome per usual and Stanley Pringle balled out in his first-ever Finals.

But the Honda-PBA Press Corps Finals MVP is Japeth Aguilar, who was key on both ends in the Gin Kings' latest tile conquest.

Aguilar, who won his first Finals MVP award, averaged 17.4 points, 7.0 rebounds, and 3.4 blocks in the series.

He saved his best performance for last in Game 5, leading the Gin Kings in scoring with 25 points on top of eight rebounds, and four blocks.
