A decorated basketball player, Yap is not new to the public eye. He has been the face of the Philippine Basketball Association for years, with 16 appearances in the league.

Also dubbed “Big Game,” James also shared insight into the practice and workouts of the Elasto painters in his vlog. According to him, the gymnasium is 40 minutes by bus from their current residence.
On August 30, PBA commissioner Willie Marcial said the league was still eager to return to Metro Manila.
“Dito muna (sa Pampanga) ang elimination,” Marcial said. “Ang plano, babalik sa NCR ‘pag okay na talaga sa NCR. “
(The elimination of the league will take place here in Pampanga. The plan is to return to the NCR if the situation improves in the NCR.)
Elasto Painter‘s first vlog got 1.8,000 views six hours later after its vlog was premiered.
His channel has 981 subscribers at the time of writing.
