    I choose greg slaughter. Marlou aquino has a slight advantage in terms of offense but he's having a hard time playing against a player with the same height or taller than him. I remember how andy seigle sometime outplays aquino.

    I will compare them based on their impact. Marlou was so dominant in his first year and his stats will bear that out. Oo nga hirap sa kasing laki niya si Marlou pero wala pa namang ganon nung early years niya. Ok naman si Greg pero I can't say his dominant. And kung iisipin mo si June Mar naman lang malapit sa height niya and dipa sila nagtapat. Marlou ito.

    Rookie Marlou Aquino was better than Greg Slaughter today. The stats will borne this out but more importantly, the impact that they had for their respective teams. Slaughter has the luxury of having talented teammates surrounding him - Aguilar, Caguioa, Baracael, Tenorio, Ellis, Reyes, even Monfort, Helterbrand and Mamaril. Aquino had good players with him - Locsin, Hizon, David, Jarencio, Feihl, even a 50-year old Jaworski, but quality-wise, it paled in comparison to what Slaughter has now. Today, you have Aguilar and Tenorio in the race for BPC while it was an all-Aquino show back then. Aquino was the main man for that Ginebra unit - and he proved his worth despite being a rookie.

    More importantly, Aquino (along with David) turned things around for Ginebra. They were in the cellar for the past 3 seasons before and Aquino's arrival changed the team's fortunes almost instantaneously. Ginebra was in the semifinals in all three conferences during Aquino's rookie year - a major turnaround for what once was a moribund team. In the 3rd Conference, the Governors' Cup, Ginebra went all the way to the Finals only to lose to the rampaging and Grand-Slamming Alaska Aces. Again, in all 3 conferences, Aquino was the top banana of the Ginebra team, underscoring his dominance and major role in the team's resurgence. Aquino was an MVP contender that year, losing out to eventual winner Johnny Abarrientos but copping the ROY award instead.

    No brainer ...Slaughter

    si marlou hanggang nag retired hirap na hirap sa Freethrow shooting niya hahaha
  • I was 9 yrs.old when Ginebra drafted Aquino in 1996. Ginebra fan since 1996.

    Pero nakakasupalpal din naman si Marlou against taller defenders and against dun sa mga fil-ams

    nakaka posterize din naman siya and he was a very exciting player to watch at hinde lang jolen na tira yung alam niya.

    A rookie aquino even held his own against a veteran benjie paras. Mas lamang si Slaughter sa rebounding kumpara kay Marlou pero pagdating naman sa interio defense and shot blocking dyan lamang si Aquino. He won the defensive player of the year award in 1996. and gaya nga ng sinabi ni sir JP mercado mas better ang supporting casts ni GS kumpara kay Marlou.

    Aquino finished 2nd in MVP voting in 1996 and 1997
  • Saka Ginebra eh 3 years na nasa kangkungan and panay na lottery picks bago nila nakuha si Marlou. Kahit na tinamad si Skycraper and bumaba laro niya nung naging 34yrs.old siya eh from age 23 to 33 he was averaging in double figures.

    Yes, I think the question raised was who is better - the rookie version of Aquino or today's rookie version of Slaughter. Of course, it's still too early to tell considering that Slaughter has only played 14 games at this time and can still develop into a monster that we expect of him. But for now, Aquino has my vote because of the impact he made on his rookie season.

    Aquino in '96-'98 was considered to be one of the best centers in ASIA. That says a lot.
    It's too bad that he seemed to play with less passion and motivation as he got older.

    Greg IMO appears to be a more cerebral and disciplined player but at this stage, it's really too early to tell. Marlou was a franchise and game changer right on his rookie year.

    Marlou had a greater impact and for most part the team's offense revolved around him. Greg is supporting cast to Japeth, Ginebra's current main man.
  • offense - marlou Aquino is better than slaughter (more moves to the basket, the kili-kili shot,etc)

    defense - marlou Aquino's interior defense is better as well during his first year compared to greg's

    impact - tie? marlou was ginebra's best player in his rookie year while greg is not but at that time, ginebra doesn't have much option so the play centers on marlou unlike now when ginebra has caguioa,tenorio and japeth to go to. though ginebra's fortunes turnaround when marlou came as evidenced by their semifinals appearances after conferences of being a cellar dweller prior to marlou's drafting, we can also say that ginebra intentionally tanked their games to be cellar dwellers to get higher chances of nabbing the no.1 pick (wala pa kasing lina franchise to sell the no.1 overall picks)

    marlou by a mile.

    impact-wise, even before he came to the league he was asked to join the 1994 asian games team because of his talents. slaughter is dominant now but a couple of months back, it's no secret that most ginebra fans are torn between him and ian sangalang.

    also, before marlou came to ginebra, the kings had trouble winning. ginebra was 5-25 in 1995 and when the kings selected aquino, their win-loss record improved to 35-29 - which included a finals trip in 1996 pba governors cup (this was overshadowed by alaska's grand slam).

    but yun nga... kontrapelo talaga niya si eagle seigle. :)

    Ha. Matanong ko nga po kung paano naging one of the best center sa asia si marlou nung 96-98 eh hindi nga naglaro sa abc championship (fiba-asia)

    Marlou syempre. On offense, Aguino has a slight edge but on defense he is way way better than Slaughter. Shot blocking ability is somewhat similar to what Aguilar is bringing to the table right now.

    marlou played in the asian games in 1994 and 1998. granted hindi kasali ang 1994 diyan sa 1996-98 range. :glee:
    can't comment on his 1998 performance, but the NT did get bronze.

    it's just people's impression of marlou is the tamad version while he was at SLR. nag-commercial pa nga si marlou sa jollibee. si greggy boy... :naughty:

    Actually kung comparisons and game play, these would be better comparisons:

    Thoss - Marlou (2 way players, great post moves)

    Fajardo - Taulava (power and grace)

    Slaughter - Andy Seigle, EJ Feihl
    (lumbering giants)

    Not saying that these guys are as good as each other but the comparisons are there. Obviously Slaughter is better than Feihl. With his height tho, I don't think he can be comparable to anyone right now. Maybe a healthy Andy Seigle.

    back in the day you don't need the abc to tell people how powerful you are. dominantly playing the pba alone was enough to incite fear on them. ganun kalakas ang pba then because wala pang masyadong established pro leagues sa asia non. it was either china, korea, or us (yung kazakhstan nakaka-hapyaw lang sila kasi ayaw natin ng battle for bronze games). that's why lahat ng tao asar when bap can't handle dealing with the pba and at the same time sending a lot of mediocre teams to represent the country.

    Marlou was already one of the finest centers in the region dating back in the 1994 Hiroshima Asian Games. He was the starting center for the SMB-led national team, reinforced by several players from Purefoods, Alaska and amateurs Aquino and Kenneth Duremdes. Aquino was starting for the national team in 1994 with Jerry Codi?era coming off the bench to relieve him. In 1998, he was the top center once more for the Philippines in the Bangkok Asian Games.
