Mark Caguioa is the heart of the PBA and the inspiration of barangay ginebra fans...

He's indeed the greatest player of today's generation.. He can play defense, offense and all... He can influence his teammates with his never say die spirit

Mark the spark is the heart of the court...

Mark you are the best

He's my idol in pba... He can deal in 3-point shots... He is the best point guard ni the country...

Best example of greatestt PBA player.. Know his role.. Unselfishness plays and great mind to be a team captain

Mighty mouse is the best point guard in the country,.. Proven in pba and even internationally,..

Small but terrible

4Jayjay Helterbrand

I love jayjay helterbrand.
he's so cute and a good shooter.

He is the best. because he can do anything especially on 3 point shots and assists. So, go idol jay-jay!

It's because God is always with Him. Every shot has a Good News. One of the best PG in the PBA and has a great basketball I.Q. and leadership. Before Yeo or Baguio, "The Fast" was the one who made the fans really enjoy watching PBA because of those acrobatic shots and still able to make it through. He may be past his prime, but definitely he is still able to deliver those shots.. Jj13 no. 1!

5Robert Jaworski

he is the living legend and he is the one responsible of making rp basketball great among the other country here in asia

BIG J no need for intro. He's the best he give his spirit and soul every time he played. Came from rag to reiches. That's why he knows the masses. There will never be another robert kjaworski.

He is the most popular basketball player in the history of basketball in the Philippines. PBA become famous because of Jaworski and without him GINEBRA will not become the heart and soul of millions PBA fans in the world

A great skywalker with the ability to entertain basketball fans

Because of his amazing moves, the award which is sportsmanship which is one of the important award and his humility

For me Cyrus baguio because he is the best among the rest

The king of different highlights!

7Dondon Hontiveros

If he's hands was on fire, it's hard to stop him from shooting beyond the arc! His quick and unpredictable 3 pointer jump shots made him a feared player in the court. When he's cold don't his brilliant defense makes him more respected than other point or shooting guards.

He is my IDOL since MBA time... I hope and pray that when he come back to play this coming Sunday, he can help the team to win through his defense and offense.

He is the most important of the team during crunch time!

All around player. I have so much respect for this guy, hands down

8Alvin Patrimonio

Alvin" THE CAPTAIN, THE LION HEART, THE FACE and the SMALL BUT TERRIBLE " for me nobody can replace him until now in the PBA or the active players in the PBA! I start watching Alvin that time at the Coney Island team until now in the SMC as a TEAM MANAGER! ALVIN is like an IMPORT player I'm remember that time when THARON MAYES as a import thrown out from the game and ALVIN take charge the team as a import and he got win the team! Akalain nyu yun team played without import pero naipanalo nya pa rin!

if you say Michael Jordan in NBA I can say also Alvin Patrimonio in PBA, He is only the player who stick in one team because of his leadership and "LION HEART" performance in every night of the game and he leads the team into several championship.. - mrgear

Alvin for me is the best among his co players in his time.. He is my idol at all time, a four time mvp.

Alvin patrimonio yeah

The Contenders

11Arwind Santos

.. Arwind santos is the best.. He's so humble, he don't think about his own award he always play as a team.. For him the win of the team is much more important than he's own awards as long as he plays hard for the team.. Go go arwind.. you will always be my MVP..

The great moves quite similar to EL Presidente Ramon Fernandez, not to mention his MVP's awards.. Of course his character, his sharpness and his lovely side moves attempt leading to great points.. And he's kinda handsome

Best moves. MVP forever. So down to earth, nice guy, and so much more good characteristics that helps him be a good IDOL to me. You rocks!

Arwind Santos is the best player ever

He is the best player who can play multiple position.
And always creates mismatches!

Puso Dunk Laban kina. Scola at Mata.keep up the good work and God bless

My idol is one of the best in terms of defense PUSO!

13Allan Caidic

Greatest shooter of all time not really the greatest player but among the top 5

Excuse me many said that the new Allan Caidic now is Jeff "Negros Sniper" Chan from Rain or shine Elasto Painters

Allan Caidic is Allan Caidic and no one compared him among PBA players from past and present.

Caidic is one of the best

All energy and heart plus willingness to win..

He gave an all out game every time he played.

15Johnny Abarrientos

I never watch any sports but in order to stop my father from switching the channels, I need to find a way. I really hated when its game time because everyone is watching and the next day talking about it, not only in our neighborhood, also in school, streets and even in the market. One team and one name is popular, the team of jaworski which is Ginebra is the crowds favorite while Johnny Abarrientos is the inspiration of all who loves to play basketball of all ages and most specially those who are short in height. So the first sport I watch was pba and first player who made a goal was Johnny Abarrientos. What really catches my eyes was he never hesitate to drive underneath the basket knowing that all the defenders are going towards him, from that time on he will forever be my beat being the best point guard of all time. As we all know Johnnyy Abarrientos dominated his era with flying colors. He is in deed the best point guard of all ages, of all time and of all generations. He almost ...more

johnny is the best, if james yap is the best why he could not do it in international scene. Johnny is the jordan of the Philippines.

Almost made it to the NBA. He deserves to be in Top 5 or even in Top 3.

Johnny is the best no doubt about it

17Vergel Meneses

He is the greatest player who ever played in the pba. His moves is so beautiful to look at, indeed very smooth and so elegant. Vergel meneses you are the great. I really miss all your moves in the court.

Vergel is an unstoppable player, especially in isolation play. He has a terrific eye for the open man. He is a great team captain. His dunks during his first 2 years in pba were sick. He is probably the most talented player who ever played the league.

18Danny Ildefonso

I think he's the best guy who played the Power Forward and Center spot from the year he entered the league until now despite of the fact that age and injuries affected him so much. RAISE THE ROOF!

A center that can make 3 pt and perimeter shot, Lakay Danny I known for his amazing low post moves.

He is popular for doing the Raise the Roof dunk, and also a good passer.

He also prove himself as a good mentor, sharing his basketball knowledge to young players, that's why the Kraken releases!

20Ramon Fernandez

because of his amazing performance many MVP's AWARDS, those triple double figures scores in every game wonderful

Greatest filipino basketball player who ever lived. Who else can play like an elite point guard eventhough his natural position is a center?... What an icon! There will never be another one like him... PBA should retire both of his # Jerseys...

The greatest player ever enter the PBA the el presidente of the pba the pride of leytenos!

El Presidente
