I remember joking that a basketball players worst nightmare is an open lane with only one defender between him and the basket, only problem is that player is Rudy Distrito.
Honorable mention should probably go to Benny "Elbow Drop During a Scramble" Cheng and Jawo's personal hitman, Wilmer Ong. (Notice that when the opposing team's main scorer gets hot, Wilmer Ong comes in and hits him with a hard foul) Ah.. pinoy basketball, its a martial art in itself methinks

di ko naabutan yung mga iba (rocha, noblezada, etc.), but in my nearly 2 decades of watching the pba, that's my top 10 list...even if i do agree the '80s were wilder and more physical than the current game, i'd say villanueva is #10 "with a bullet", when his career's through he may be in the top 5.
In no particular order:
Ricky Relosa (Mr. Batok Sabay Takbo!)

mick "d!ck head" pennisi is in my list. from number 1 - 10 (sa mga active players)
Ikaw talaga, malaki galit mo kay Jolas ha? But seriously the Jawo-Jolas brouhaha even in its best merit was contentious while the incident with Samboy, while admittedly life-threatening was purely an accident. If you remember, Jolas immediately rushed to the Samboy's aid and after the game, went direct to the hospital along with wife Butchik to check him out.
Jolas had had his share of scraps but I don't think he deserved a top-ten citation. Off-hand, I can easily name more than ten players not included in your list who are more deserving:
1)Joy Dionisio - one of the few who didn't back down against the Big J.
2) Wilmer Ong - I was directly behind coach Joe LIpa (then handling Shell in a game against Ginebra) and he was like, " Itong bata ito mabait nuong player ko pa sa Philips Sardine pero ngayong nag-Ginebra naging t@r@nt@do na".
3) Dante Gonzalgo -he got into it with nearly the entire Great Taste bench
4) Sonny Cabatu - playing for Great Taste , he punched Ginebra's Jamie Waller. The Mike Tyson look-alike was so traumatized that he dreaded the sight of Sonny Cabatu the first time he saw him as a Ginebra teammate in practice.
5)Choy Estrada - no talent whatsover but was able to hang around because he was a perfect henchman for Yeng Guiao - fearless who comes in cheap in the pocket.
6) Jimmy Javier (RIP)- another no-talent big body who earned his living by trading faces and banging beefs. I distinctly remember the camera catching in a time-out then Crispa coach Tommy Manotoc giving structions to Javier who was taking on NCC's Jeff Moore . "Oh Jimmy ah, umangan mo ng siko ha. Inisin mo ng masira laro", said Manotoc while motioning his forearm.
7) Alex and Boy Clarinio - oh yeah, Alex is dead but STL (sa totoo lang), hindi sila mabait maglaro.
8) Mon Fernandez -surprise! Ask many of his former opponents who were victims of his dirty fingers - Mon had the habit of gouging opponents' eyes to gain advantage. Guidaben complained about it which may sound like a sour grape. However former opponent and eventually teammate Yves Dignadice said the same thing.
9) Robert Jaworski - enough said!
10) Romy Mamaril - don't let his spindly frame fool you. Nobody threw more elbows after securing a rebound more than Mama. Ugly-looking too so you might want to take offense on his bizzare countenance.
11) Jay Ramirez - tough and aggresive, and nasty of course.
12) Dennis Abbatuan - even Jawo was once moved to say "That Abbatuan shouldn't be allowed to play".
13) Johnny Revilla - the only thing filthier than his game was his looks. Was so filthy he even fought with former Crispa and UE teammate Rudy Soriano in practice.
14) Rey Lazaro - him and Joey Loyzaga, himself no angel, got into it many times including a memorable brawl in the dug-out. (Hey mga Pareng Kobe, JPM, Sonics , Godfather etc.. - maybe we can start a thread on memorable brawls on-and-off the court)
15) Ely Capacio -the only man to get the goat of my buddies Vicente (and Victorino too). Ok , this is biased. However, before they became teammates Capacio and Fernandez often traded elbows and cheap shots. And since Glen Capacio is in your list, perhaps it is not far fetched to say that dirty basketball runs in the blood of the Capacios. I heard dati daw semenarista si Ely and was often referred to as Father Ely by broadcasters. How about Friar Filth?
^^Hehe, as usual you have an amusing list Pareng Chito.
I only have a handful:
1. Rudy Distrito - pre-Ginebra days , Ginebra days, post-Ginebra days..even after retirement, hehehe.
2. Onchie Dela Cruz - one of the few sonafa*****es who would spit in the face of your opponent. Talk about being really dirty.
3. Dennis Espino - man, I'm a fan of this guy since his UST days but he is really rough out there inside. Ask that Japanese guy Orimo.
4. Enrico Villanueva - in recent times, I have never seen a player who has gotten into a lot of trouble in almost every league he has played in - collegiate, professional.. even in international tournaments.
5. Jimwell Torion - the typical kalye baller who has probably not read or heard of the PBA Handbook on rules and regulations.
Warm welcome to you pareng Jess. Lalong gaganda ang usapan dito. Teka lang pards, bakit Jess79 ang handle mo rito, di ba 69 ang paborito mong numero?
Sige na nga, dishonorable mention na lang si Jolas. Kunsabagay he's a wimp on defense and his notoriety is only with Jawo and Samboy. On the other hand Torion's clothesline on Jimmy Alapag (and subsequently breaking Alapag's nose in the process) doesn't even go on record as "simpleng gulang" as its so obviously dirty that he'll take Jolas' place in my top ten.
Btw, mali ka kay Jess, favorite number nya ay hindi 69. Ang favorite number nya ay 6.9 (or 69 with a period).
