The Top Ten

James Yap
He's indeed the man with a million moves, a player who can play double time with extra efforts
He's the best... He has most votes in pba all-star always
James yap is the Philippine greatest basketball player ever... He is a shooting guard who is capable of playing the small forward position. He is considered one of the most complete players in the PBA...
[Newest]He is good at 3 point. And kaya nya lahat na position

2Mark Caguioa
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
[Newest]Mark you are the best

3Jimmy Alapag
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,..
[Newest]He epitomizes "puso", no one else comes close!

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!
One of the best point guard in the pba... I salute

5Alvin 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..


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

6Robert 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.
Legendary! One word is enough to explain his game
[Newest]Robert jaworski can defeat james yap so easily

7Cyrus Baguio
A great skywalker with the ability to entertain basketball fans
For me Cyrus baguio because he is the best among the rest

8Dondon 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 has the best shooting form!
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.
[Newest]All around player. I have so much respect for this guy, hands down

9Johnny Abarrientos
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.
MVP awards... he's move.. his jump.. his speed... his pulse ^^ his quickness... his ability and his attitude! What else could we ask for?

10Allan Caidic
Greatest shooter of all time not really the greatest player but among the top 5
The greatest shooter the country has ever produced. Period.
Excuse me many said that the new Allan Caidic now is Jeff "Negros Sniper" Chan from Rain or shine Elasto Painters

The Contenders

11Vergel 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.

12LA Tenorio
I like tenorio because he is very cute and excellent player

I like LA tenorio because he is smartest pg

13Arwind 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!
[Newest]One of the Best Player

14Marc Pingris
Pingris is so nice player
Go Marc Pingris! We will support you

15Peter June Simon
I like he move on the court... Good in three points shot, inside or outsides... Very good in free throw
For me, he id the best player in his team...
Hey! I love you! You're the best!
[Newest]I love him really...

16Benjie Paras
The power of tower, no one can beat this guy. MVP and rookie of the year!
The only Rookie of the year/MVP in PBA History.
No one can match to the tower of power even the invasion f fil am. I watch him scoring outside and dunk face to face to much taller guy, l

17Gabe Norwood
He's good in almost every basketball positions and is great in slam dunk! Plus he has cute dimples =)
He is the best player who can play multiple position.
And always creates mismatches!

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!
i choose danny because of being a 2 time MVP
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!
[Newest]A man with a great heart from the court!

19Kenneth Duremdes

20Calvin Abueva
Strong and fast and small power forward of all time
He is the best. if the stats is matter the most, he is the second rookie of the year mvp.
Because he is the beast and he is the next LeBron

21Ramon 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...

22Asi Taulava
Still playing well even it's already his mid 40's. Not every players in the world can do that.
Asi taulava is the best for me because he is a good blocker and rebounder
54 points ina single game
Most dominant center in the pba

23Jojo Lastimosa
Best shooter of all time

24Bong Hawkins

25Gary David

26Ricardo Brown
Si ricky brown ay magaling na point guard sa PBA history... Naglaro siya sa Great taste

27Nelson Asaytono

28Kelly Williams
Kelly williams is the lebron james of the PBA. He stands 6'6 which is tall for a PBA player, who can play four different positions as center, PF, SF and off guard. Great defender, rebounder and scorer. Any player from 1-8.. I dare you.. you're nothing against kelly williams.

29Paul Lee
"He's Probably The Best Player In The Philippines. I Saw Him At Florida During Their Practice For Fiba World Cup In Spain. Beating Almost Half of Bench Players There And They Don't Stand A Chance To Beat Him. Among His Teammates, He Is The Only One That Can Spark In The Paint. My Coach Says He Has A Potential To Play In Nba. - Lebron James,4-time NBA Most Valuable Player.
Go Angas ng Tondo Paul lee go rain or shine
Paul"d'lethal weapon" lee is good in both defensive and offensive play. He is a great shooter, and he is a game changer like in FIBA Asia 2014... Go lee!

30Japeth Aguilar
Nba type of play

31Danny Seigle
Only because danny seigle is a fil am thata why he never win rookie mvp award in 1999

32Ray Parks Jr.
He is the future of PBA. He'll be a potential No. 1 pick. And if I'm the team, I'll choose him over Ravena because he can shoot, dribble, pass and definitely rebound.

33Jason Castro
Idol ko yan walang mas bibilis kay jayson castro
Best point guard in Asia. malaki and contribution nya sa Team pilipinas para mag qualify sa world cup..
The fastest pba player for me. Siya and tunay na future ng pba.

36Alex Cabagnot
Because he is a great clutch player, he is a versatile player that's all

37Sonny Thoss
Tim duncan of pba

38Lebron James

39Ryan Reyes
Ryan Reyes plays with his whole heart and is all out in his games. He may be the best defensive player I know for making every match ups with him very challenging. He also creates turnovers though steals, who would guess how he does it! Aside from his defense, he is also a great offensive player, scoring the threes and aggressively driving down to the ring with his amazing moves and foot work. Ryan Reyes is the best. Go Talk 'N Text!
