Best power forwards in PBA history

Evil the WeaselEvil the Weasel by Acoustic Alchemy PExer
Alvin Patrimonio imho is the best power forward ever followed by Benjie Paras (whether he's a pf or center is debatable), Eric Menk, Nelson Asaytono & Yoyoy Villamin. JB Yango prolly wont make anyone's top 10 but he is my all time favorite.

    Ramon Fernandez - the best ever
    Philip Cezar - the Scholar's brains, grace, and strength kept him on top of the list.
    Abe King - the Chairman of the Boards was the perfect epitome of a true Power Forward.
    Manny Paner - one of the first elite frontliners and highest paid players.
    Terry Saldana - the Plastic Man had an enviable combination of strength and athleticism.

    Other notables:
    Yves Dignadice - gifted with natural talent, if only he had the same determination he would have been among the best ever.
    Alvin Teng - he made up for his lack of athleticism with grit and determination plus a nose for the loose ball.
    Ricky Relosa - the other half of the Bruise Bros., he was gritty, determined and fearless (except for the infamous batok takbo incident)
    Bong Hawkins - very wily and dependable

    My list includes only those who wre not previously mentioned ;).

    Strictly speaking mine looks more like roadwarrior's although I included Mon Fernandez because, who played more of the 5 but played some 4 with the presence of the tall imports.

    Alvin Patrimonio- he's the best in that position and the most successful pf in the league. he revolutionized the pf position here in the philippines.

    Eric Menk- after the Patrimonio era, here comes Major Pain

    Nelson Asaytono- selfish but effficient. he's also a strong player like Alvin

    Noli Locsin- men! he can float in mid-air

    Yoyoy Villamin- he's one of the best during his time and before the "glamour boys" came in to the picture

    Abe King- the first power player in the league

    Philip Cezar- a power forward who plays like a center

    Yves Dignadice- a good power forward but he spend his entire career playing under the shadows of numerous pba stars like lim, fernandez, brown, caidic, agustin, calma, he wasn't given a chance to show that he can lead his san miguel team.

    Alvin Teng- "the robocop". slow but efficient inside the lane loves to hustle the ball

    Bong Hawkins- i like his back of the head shot and one of the most reliable forwards in the league giving alaska numerous championships.

    Philip Cezar also plays like a PG, thus, earning the label point-forward.

    davonn harp - hes strong, killer left hook that baffled defenders.
    eric menk - the arrival of major pain pushed patrrimonio out of the picture.
    yoyoy villamin - who could forget his 42 points, no fouls, no errors game against great taste.... hes a complete power forward.

    Patrimonio and Menk :handsdown:
  • numetalnumetal Member PExer
    PF ba talaga si Don Ramon? I think i'll go with him aside from Patrimonio and Menk. I heard some good stories about Phillip Cesar too.

    Also, I would have to consider Bong Hawkins on the list ... the Alaska team of the 90's is the PBA team I enjoyed the most watching live or on TV. Their teamwork and camaraderie is the best I've seen.
  • bchoterbchoter Member PExer
    Don Ramon was playing mostly the 5. However, he played some PF with the arrival of taller imports.

    No doubt, ALVIN PATRIMONIO! 4-time MVP

    nyak. pare naman. patrimonio was unstoppable kasi.... sino babantay sa kanya? yoyoy villamin matanda na nung dumating si patrimonio, puro injury pa sya. pahina na laro nya non. si ricky relosa ganon din. nasa 30s na sila nun. wala na nga akong power forwards na maisip eh na kasabayan ni patrimonio kung hindi si asaytono. mas pipiliin ko si asaytono dahil mas may outside shooting sya. may mid range din si patrimonio pero sa inside talaga sya lumalaban. isipin mo nga kung nasa pba na si menk at harp nung 1988 eh makakaporma kaya si patrimonio? limitado mga kilos ni patrimonio. nag dominate sya sa pba, pero yun yung panahon na ang mga player ng pba, mga lasenggo at matatanda. oo lasenggo yang mga yan. si jb yanggo, villamin, cezar, abe king. nung panahon ni patrimonio, kaya nyang i-bully mga lasenggong player at mga abusado sa katawan na player.
  • bchoterbchoter Member PExer
    Eh matanda na rin naman si Patrimonio nung dumating si Menk. AT oo, makakaporma si Patrimonio dahil hindi lang lakas ng pangangatawan ang ipinapanlaban niya. Bilis ng pagiisip at puso ang nagpaangat sa kanya.

    mga player na abusado sa katawan:


    onchie dela cruz - lasenggo. umiinom ng tanduay. totoo yan.

    joey at chito loyzaga - walang preno sa kain. tingnan mo mga tyan.

    itoy esguerra - lasenggo, yosi adik.

    bernie fabiosa - laging puyat sa kakalaro ng pusoy. lamayan sa baraha.

    jb yanggo - di maalaga sa katawan. pero laging makintab mga baril.

    alfie almario - sumalangit nawa, masaya na umupo sa bench, malakas uminom at kumain ng kanin.

    nelson asaytono - nagyoyosi, hanggang ngayon nakikita ko sa servitek nagyoyosi habang pinapaayos yung tsekot nya.

    stevenson solomon - di nakasabay ni patrimonio pero adik sa maynila. chongke boy yan.


    yan lang maisip ko ngayon. pero marami yan. ang PBA noon, commercialized baranggay league! hindi nag weweights ang mga player ayaw mag work out kasi masisira ang mga pulso nila! maraming player na malalaki ang tyan, at nagyoyosi pa! yung iba mula nung naglalaro pa sila sa micaa yosi boys na! hulaan ninyo kung sino sino yung mga player na minura ni baby dalupan sa paninigarilyo sa dug out?
  • ClockworksClockworks Banned by Admin PExer
    mabilis pag iisip nya dahil hindi makapag isip kalaban nya noon dahil may hang over pa kagabi! *peace*

    hulaan mo kung anong oras nagigising si bernie fabiosa bago pumunta sa ultra para maglaro sa shell? :rotflmao:
  • bchoterbchoter Member PExer
    Una, si Bernie Fabiosa ay PG. Hindi ko ubos maisip na magkakatapat sila ni Patrimonio. Pangalawa, matanda na si Bernie nung kalakasan ni Patrimonio.
