Both got drafted last 2004 by Fedex franchise, #3 and #4.
Both won championships and individual awards.
Two of the best forwards in the league, coveted for the Gilas team. Two different playing styles.
Career ave (from pba-online):
Pingris - 7.61 PPG, 7.32 RPG, 1.31 APG, 0.46 SPG, 0.87 BPG
de Ocampo - 11.8 PPG, 6.14 RPG, 2.01 APG, 0.58 SPG, 0.33 BPG
Ping, unleashes the energy and hustles like no one else can do, is perhaps one of the best all-around defenders today and can light up the offense too.
While RDO, proud Gilas PF starter silent he may seems, is evidently the better offensive player (outside and inside) but can also empower a great interior defense.
If given a choice, who will you choose for your team and who do you think is better overall?
