    Allan Caidic

    Allan Vito Flores Caidic (born 15 June 1963, Pasig City, Philippines) is a former professional basketball player from the Philippines. He is considered by many to be one of the most prolific scorers in Philippine basketball and the greatest pure outside shooter the country has ever produced. A left-hander and a deadly offensive weapon, he is often called the “Triggerman” because of his ability to make outside shots from the three-point zone despite being heavily guarded. He is a player who could slay teams with a single flick of his left wrist and brought headaches and heartaches to the opposition.

    Over the years, Caidic, once a complete offensive player from the inside and the outside, suffered many injuries as a professional player. Although, the injuries slow him down, he remained a deadly shooter from the perimeter three-point zone.

    He first drew national attention while playing college hoops at the University of the East (UE), before joining the Philippine Basketball Association (PBA) in 1987, where he broke several Filipino and PBA all-time records -- including the most points scored in a single game by a Filipino (79 points), the most three-point field goals made in a single game (17 triples; breaking his previous record of 15 triples), the most three-point field goals in a career (1,242 triples) and the most consecutive free-throws in a row (76). He has played with several PBA teams and won numerous championship titles (mostly in the PBA All Filipino Cup); he has also played for the Philippine national basketball team including the 1998 Philippine Centennial Team.

    Whilst in the league, he was considered Asia’s most feared trifecta icon and one of the world’s deadliest three-point shooters. The vaunted Chinese and Korean national basketball teams recognized this ability by always reminding their players to be on the lookout for “Philippine No. 8”, referring to Caidic’s regular jersey number while playing for the National Team.


    CAREER

    College Career
    He started playing in the Inter Subdivision Leagues at Brookside, in Cainta before trying out for college teams such as the Ateneo Blue Eagles, the Mapua University and the San Juan de Letran but was unsuccessful. He was later accepted in the University of the East (UE) in 1981 and spent his first year on the bench.

    In 1982, Caidic, at 19, led the University of the East Red Warriors to a comeback win against the University of the Philippines (UP) in the finals to capture the University Athletics Association of the Philippines (UAAP) basketball championship and won the Most Valuable Player award.

    In his final two years, Caidic along with Jerry Codiñera led the Red Warriors to back-to-back championships in 1984-1985, the last University of the East basketball team ever to win a championship in the 20th Century. At the same time, he played for several teams in the Philippine Amateur Basketball League (PABL) while playing for the national team.

    “Rare is the player who can frustrate him from burning the hoops because he needs only a little space to make a goal. He baffles his opponents with his quick reflexes.”

    (Jenny King, Great and Famous Filipinos, 2002)


    NCC
    In 1983-1985, Caidic was part of Danding Cojuangco’s Northern Consolidated basketball program, which formed a competitive team to compete at club and international levels. The team composed of selected college players in the Philippine Amateur Basketball League - notably Caidic, Samboy Lim, Hector Calma and his UE teammate Jerry Codiñera with three American veterans, Dennis Still, Jeff Moore and hotshot Arthur “Chip” Engelland.

    In 1983, Caidic played for the Philippines in the 1983 FIBA Asia Championship, where the national team was penalized after fielding three foreigners, and became the first ever unbeaten national team in a basketball tournament ever to finish without a medal.

    The team, coached by Ron Jacobs, later played in the 1984-1985 PBA seasons as an all-amateur guest team and eventually won the 1985 PBA Reinforced Conference championship, sweeping Manila Beers 4-0 in the final series.

    The NCC team also competed internationally as the San Miguel Philippines, winning the 1984 FIBA Asian Club Basketball Championship Cup and the 1985 William Jones Cup International Basketball Championship, and represented Asia in the FIBA World Club Basketball Championship at Gerona, Spain.

    In 1985 Jones Cup, Caidic played in the San Miguel Philippines’ overtime victory against the USA, coached by the legendary Gene Keady, in the finals. His shooting mentor, Arthur “Chip” Engelland, scored 43 points while Caidic scored 21, to lead the Filipinos in a 108-100 overtime victory to capture the Jones Cup title.

    Arthur Engelland went on to become the shooting mentor of world-class players with shooting calibers, like Steve Kerr (Chicago Bulls, San Antonio Spurs) and Grant Hill (Detroit Pistons, Orlando Magic), both from the United States’ National Basketball Association (NBA), and of course, Allan Caidic.

    National team
    Under the NCC program, Caidic led the Philippines in capturing the 1985 South East Asian Games Basketball Gold Medal and in 1986, he led the last all-amateur national team to capture the FIBA Asia Championship gold medal and scored 22 points in the 82-72 finals victory against China.

    After winning the Asian Championship, the Philippines qualified for the 1986 FIBA World Championship at Madrid, Spain, but due to the political crisis in the country (that leads to the Philippine People Power EDSA Revolution); the national team did not participate in the tournament.

    Caidic is a four-time veteran of the Asian Games as a player and shared this distinction with Alvin Patrimonio, as the only PBA players to play in four Asian Games (1986, 1990, 1994, and 1998). In 1986, he lead an all-amateur national team to Asian Games bronze medal, after a heart breaking controversial loss to South Korea in the semi-final. He went on to win another bronze medal and a silver in the Asian Games basketball tournaments and hold the distinction of being the only Filipino player to win the William Jones Cup championships twice in the 20th Century, once as an amateur with San Miguel Philippines in 1985 and once as a professional with the Philippine Centennial Team in 1998.

    PBA Career
    In 1987, he was drafted first pick overall by the Great Taste Coffee Makers and played alongside Ricardo Brown to led the team to the PBA Open Conference finals (In Game 3, he equaled Brown’s PBA all-time record for the most points scored by a Filipino in a single Finals game - 48 points) and later captured his first PBA-All Filipino Cup championship. In his rookie season, after averaging 16.6 points per game, he earned the 1987 PBA Rookie of the Year award and was named in the All-Star Mythical Five Selection, where he became the third first year-rookie player ever to be named in the Mythical Five Selection after Arnie Tuadles (1979) and Ricardo Brown (1983).

    On November 2, 1989, Caidic scored 68 points and 15 three-point field goals made in a single game to lead Presto Tivoli beat the Alaska Milkmen in a high scoring overtime game 175-159. Both teams’ combine points, at the time, were the most in the PBA history.

    In 1990, he sets the PBA all-time record for the most three-point field goals made in a single season (160 triples) and lead Presto Tivoli to a championship title.

    At the end of the season, he was named the 1990 PBA Most Valuable Player, after scoring 1,730 points in the season, including the record-breaking 160 three-point field goals made and averaging 26.6 points per game/3.6 assists per game/3.6 rebounds per game.

    Caidic was later selected to play for the first all-pro national team coached by Robert Jaworski, bound for the Asian Games in Beijing, China. In one of his Asian Games appearances, he lead the national team’s second half comeback win, 86-78, against Japan with 34 points despite playing with a broken hand and held scoreless in the first half. The Philippines went on to win the silver medal after losing to China in the finals.

    On October 15, 1991, he broke the PBA all-time record for the most three-point field goals made in a career with 594 three-point conversions after scoring 9 triples in Tivoli’s 125-142 loss to Pepsi.

    One month later, on November 21, 1991, Caidic sets the PBA all-time records of the most points in a single game by a Filipino (79 points), the most points in a single half (53 points), the most points in a single quarter (37 points), the most three-point field goals made and attempts in a game (17/27 triples), the most three-point field goals made in a quarter (8 triples) and the most consecutive three-point field goals made in a single game (8 triples), in addition to 12 two-pointers and four free-throws, to lead Presto Tivoli against Ginebra San Miguel, 162-149. His performance remained as one of the greatest individual performances in the PBA history. What makes it more remarkable is that while he was playing in the court, his wife Millote was giving birth to their first daughter. He played late in the first quarter and left in the middle of the fourth quarter, in a game where he could have possibly score 100 points or more.

    Caidic missed out the 1991 Most Valuable Player award to Alvin Patrimonio, despite finishing the season with 1,275 points (27.1 points per game, 53.6 % filed goal percentage) and breaking several all time records.

    In 1993, he moved to the San Miguel Beermen franchise after his Presto ballclub was replaced by the Sta. Lucia Realtors in the PBA. In his new team, he combined with Samboy Lim, to form the league’s most deadliest scoring duo in the 1990’s and led the Beermen to the 1993 All-Filipino Cup finals. He ended the season winning the PBA Governor’s Cup championship with San Miguel and earned the 1993 PBA All-Star Most Valuable Player award after leading his team (North All-Star) to victory, scoring 40 points (second highest points scored in a single All-Star game) and 9 triples (the most three-point field goals made in a single All-Star game). He became the first PBA player ever to win the MVP awards in the regular season and in the All-Star Game.

    In 1994, San Miguel won the right to represent the country in the Asian Games after winning the PBA All-Filipino Cup conference title. In the Asian Games, the Beermen formed the core of the national team with some loan players (notably Alvin Patrimonio and Asia’s best point guard Johnny Abarrientos) from the other PBA franchises. The national team finished fourth but Caidic finished as the Asian Games basketball tournament leading scorer and was named in the all-tournament Mythical Five Selection.

    In 1995, he became the eighth player to score 10,000 career points in the PBA history and the league’s first player to score 1,000 career three-point field goals. He went on to win the PBA Governor’s Cup Best Player of the Conference after leading the San Miguel Beermen to the finals. He finished the season as the league’s leading point scorer with 20.9 points per game, the last guard ever to led the league in season-best points scoring average in the 20th Century.

    On April 29, 1997, in a game between the Gordon Gins and the San Miguel Beermen, Caidic collided with his teammate, Nelson Asaytono, in a rebound that causes one of the most critical injury ever happened in the basketball hardcourt. Caidic fell on the floor with his head first, then vomited before becoming unconscious. He was admitted to the hospital for two weeks and recovered later from the career-threatening injury.

    In January 1998, he was rumored to play for the Laguna Lakers in the newly formed Metropolitan Basketball Association (MBA) but he stayed with San Miguel, as an assistant playing coach, and led the team to the finals of the PBA All-Filipino Cup Conference.

    He was later selected by national team head coach Tim Cone for the Philippine Centennial Team bound for the William Jones Cup (where he scored 25 points with six triples against South East Asian rival, Thailand) and the Asian Games. The team started their international campaign against China and a PBA All-Star Selection but had a dismal display in the PBA Centennial Cup. They went to a tough United States Midwest tour and won the William Jones Cup in Taiwan. In the Asian Games, the nationals easily won their group stage but loss in the semi-final and settled for third after beating Kazakhstan in their final game.

    “We need to develop more shooters because the last great shooter we had was Allan Caidic and no more”

    (Many time Filipino basketball Olympian Ramoncito Campos, 2005)


    Also in 1998, Filipino international veterans Alvin Patrimonio and Allan Caidic broke the record of the legendary Carlos Loyzaga, for the most appearances by a Filipino player in the Asian Games basketball tournament, and shared the distinction of being the only PBA players to represent the country in four Asian Games.

    Post-playing Career
    In 1999, Caidic was the playing coach for the Barangay Ginebra Kings and at the end of the year; he was left by the Ginebra management in the expansion draft, and was picked by the Red Bull Barakos franchise. Thus, Caidic was forced to retire early and concentrate fully on his coaching career.

    On February 13, 2000, Caidic announced his retirement and became the third PBA player after Ramon Fernandez and Bogs Adornado to be given the honor of retiring the jersey number by a PBA ballclub and was the first by two PBA teams. The San Miguel Beermen and the Barangay Ginebra Kings franchises both retired his number 8 jersey in honor of his legacy in the PBA.

    Later, Caidic was named in the PBA 25 greatest players ever to play in the league’s history after the PBA celebrated its 25th year as the first professional basketball league in Asia.

    In 2001, his team made it to the PBA All-Filipino Cup finals but loss the series to his former team San Miguel Beermen. While in 2002, he was named as the assistant coach for the Philippine national team bound for Europe and the Asian Games.

    In 2004, he was promoted as the Team Manager of the Barangay Ginebra Kings after five years of coaching and immediately won two consecutive championships.

    In 2005, Caidic took part in the PBA’s 30th Anniversary, leading Virgilio Dalupan’s Legends Team to victory, 96-92, in the PBA’s Classic Greatest Game with an MVP performance, scoring 30 points (4 triples, 8 rebounds) on May 2005.

    “I was just looking tired out there, but this wasn’t just about us the players. It was about giving the fans a treat.”

    (Allan Caidic, after winning the MVP award in the PBA Classic All-Star Greatest Game, May 2005)


    In September 2005, he led the PBA Legends Team to a two-game Australian Tour Series and earned himself the series Most Valuable Player award after scoring over 30 back-to-back points. The Legends, inspired by the presence of the great Carlos Loyzaga, beat the Australian Invitational-Hoopdreamz Kabayan Titans 114-88, in their final game of the series, in front of a record crowd in Penrith Sports Stadium.

    In April 2006, Caidic led the San Miguel All-Star with 17 points (5 triples) against the USA-NBA Legends Team led by former NBA star Dennis Rodman. The SMC All-Star loss, 124-94, in the exhibition game held at Mandaue City, Cebu.

    In November 2006, he was appointed as the new team manager of the struggling Coca-Cola Tigers and replaced his longtime teammate Hector Calma, who replaced Samboy Lim in San Miguel. Samboy Lim replaces Caidic in the Ginebra franchise as team manager. After one conference, Caidic was re-united with the Barangay Ginebra Kings franchise when he was appointed as the ball club’s new assistant coach.


    Personal Life
    He graduated from high school in 1980 before joining the University of the East as a varsity player. While playing for the national team, he met Avelino “Samboy” Lim, now his closest friend and current team manager of the Barangay Ginebra Kings.

    He has a short romance with sexy star Kristel Romero but later met and married Millote de Jesus in 1991 and had two children. He retired from professional basketball in 1999 but remained with the San Miguel Corporation.

    Aside from being the team manager of the San Miguel franchises in the PBA, he was actively involved in other activities such as badminton, his basketball shooting academy (the Allan Caidic Basketball Shooting Academy), and the San Miguel Corporation All-Stars, a group composed of several former professional basketball players. The SMC All-Stars toured around the country to promote the San Miguel Corporation products and played several exhibition games.

    In 2005, he was appointed Sports Ambassador to represent the Philippines in the 23rd South East Asian Games alongside some of the Philippines’ greatest athletes (Mikaela “Mikee” Cojuangco-Jaworski, Akiko Thomson, Efren ‘Bata’ Reyes, Nathaniel Padilla, Lydia de Vega-Mercado, Elma Muros-Posadas, Rafael ‘Paeng’ Nepomuceno, Mansueto ‘Onyok’ Velasco, Monsour del Rosario and Eric Buhain) to promote the event throughout the Philippine Islands.

    Recently, he fittingly released his autobiographical book, “My Life Allan Caidic, The Triggerman” (published by Atlas Publishing Co., Inc.) on his 43rd birthday, 15th of June 2006. The book is one of the Philippines’ first Filipino basketball and sports biographies in history. He also released his own personal merchandise of a signature shoe and a ball with his “Triggerman” logo (AC-8).

    “I became a shooter when I was already in college. In elementary and high school, I used to play center. I practiced every day, taking as many as 200 three-point shots, to develop this skill. Maybe, I had an inborn touch. But without the long hours of practice, I wouldn’t have been able to develop my shooting.”

    (Filipino basketball legend Allan Caidic)


    Today, Allan Caidic, gifted with the PBA’s deadliest pair of hands, remains the benchmark from which shooters are measured and he is one of the most decorated players in the Philippine basketball’s history.

    Trivia
    • Allan Caidic and Alvin Patrimonio, both share the distinction of being the only PBA players to represent the country in four Asian Games basketball tournaments since 1986. Participated in the 1986, 1990, 1994 and 1998 Asian Games. In addition, they both won the 1998 Jones Cup, 2 bronze medals and a silver medal in the Asian Games. In the PBA, they both played in the latter part of their careers as playing assistant coaches for their respective teams but Caidic would later became the playing coach while Patrimonio became the playing team manager. Currently both served as Team Managers of their respective teams and playing for the touring San Miguel All-Stars.
    • Former National Basketball Association superstar Earvin “Magic” Johnson awarded Caidic with the game ball after he scored his 10,000th career point on October 27, 1995. Johnson was in the country for a one-game tournament against a team led by former Los Angeles Lakers teammate Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. Caidic became the eighth player to score 10,000 career points in the PBA history.
    • He studied Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering at the University of the East while playing for the UE Red Warriors.



    “The 6-2 former national team standout will go down as the cager with the deadliest pair of shooting hands ever. His accuracy from the perimeter, especially from beyond the arc, was a story told and retold in the same hushed and awed tone that one would use in narrating myths. But everything about him from his legendary shooting touch to his undying desire to always win was true... It is not farfetched to believe that those scoring records will weather the trials of time and it will take ages before anybody like him torches the nets of the PBA hardcourts again.”

    Dang dormar, now thats some information. Thanks. Any personal thoughts about these players? For my information and curiosity -- what is your personal objective opinion about where these players stand in the history of RP basketball? Where does a player like Danny Siegle stand?

    In my opinion, Allan Caidic is certainly a legend in Philippine basketball... other players before him such as Robert Jaworski and Carlos Loyzaga were great legendary players... same thing that I could say to Alvin Patrimonio (the same generation as Allan Caidic)... these players played for the Philippine national teams many times and became heroes in the local Filipino leagues.... Carlos Loyzaga (I'll add him later) is certainly is the greatest Filipino player of all time while Jaworski, Patrimonio, and Caidic are great players of their own generations...

    Allan Caidic was probably the greatest shooter the Philippine basketball ever had and certainly the most feared shooter in Asia on his prime. In the Philippines, Caidic was a basketball legend and a many time member of the national team. His shooting prowess has brought glory to his club and country. In his prime, Filipino professional basketball players were only allowed to play in the Asian Games and thus, he and his peers lacks international exposure as professional players. Many only get their chance to represent the Philippines as an amateur. After turning pro in 1987, Caidic only participated in four major international tournaments compare to his international career as an amateur.

    About Danny Seigle.... he got a great future ahead of him... already a many time champion in the PBA... with more international exposure... I'm sure he will shine in international stage for the coming years!!! ... same thing that I could say to Mark Caguioa but Seigle has a brighter future!

    Tarlac, Philippines
    College University of the East
    Pro career 2005–present
    Awards PBA Slam Dunk Champion (2006, 2007)


    Rommel Niño Canaleta (born February 12, 1980 in Tarlac, Philippines) is a Filipino professional basketball player of Filipino-American descent. He currently plays for the Air21 Express in the Philippine Basketball Association. A 6'5", 190-pound swingman, he is fondly called by nicknames like KG, The Big Ticket, and The Da Vinci of Dunk. He won the 2006 and 2007 PBA Slam Dunk Contests and led the Air21 Express to a third-place finish in the 2006 PBA Philippine Cup.

    About The Player




    He made a serious run for the Rookie of the Year honors with an impressive Philippine Cup campaign where he averaged 16.2 points per game, No. 1 among rookies and seventh in the tournament among locals. But a so-so performance in the Fiesta Conference and two finals stints of Red Bull made Larry Fonacier a no-brainer for the award.

    Canaleta is undoubtedly one of the biggest attractions in the league with his jaw-dropping, never-seen slams by a local player. The 6-5 forward was a back-to-back winner of the Slam-Dunk competition, both by convincing fashion. He was ranked number 2 in scoring among rookies during his rookie year with 9.4 points per outing. Canaleta was the First Philippine Basketball Association player to become a 3-time PBA Slamdunk Champion.

    Mark Anthony Caguioa Profile




    Position Point Guard, Shooting Guard
    Nickname The Spark
    League Philippine Basketball Association (PBA),
    Height 6 ft 1 in (1.85 m)
    Weight 180 lb (82 kg)
    Team Barangay Ginebra Kings
    Nationality Filipino
    Born November 19, 1979
    San Juan, Metro Manila, Philippines
    College Glendale Comm. Coll., California
    Draft 3rd overall, 2001
    Barangay Ginebra Kings

    Pro career 2001–present



    Mark Anthony Caguioa (born on November 19, 1979 in San Juan, Metro Manila, Philippines) is a Filipino professional basketball player in the Philippine Basketball Association (PBA). He plays for the Barangay Ginebra Kings, although he is currently on leave from the team due to his playing commitments to the Philippine national team. Known by many as The Spark, he is also known, along with backcourt tandem Jayjay Helterbrand, as one-half of the so-called, The Fast and the Furious.

    Collegiate career

    Although born and raised in the Philippines, Caguioa spent his adolescent days in the United States and played collegiate ball at the Glendale Community College in California. He was named into the First-Team All-Western State Conference honors in the 1999-2000 season.


    PBA career

    In 2001, as a virtual unknown in Philippine basketball scene, he was drafted by the Barangay Ginebra Kings as the 3rd overall pick. Expectations were not high as Caguioa started as role player and reliever to Vergel Meneses. However, after showing strong performances and leading the Kings to the All-Filipino finals, he became very popular. With his killer cross-overs, slashing drives to the basket, and penchant for making clutch plays, Caguioa earned the respect and admiration of Filipino basketball fans. His exciting brand of play earned him the monicker "The Spark". At the end of the season, Caguioa is the 3rd Ginebra player since Dondon Ampalayo in 1986 and Marlou Aquino in 1996 to win the Rookie of the Year award.

    In the 2002 and 2003 seasons, Caguioa had good performances but the Kings were unable to get past the quarterfinals.

    In the 2004-2005 season, Caguioa along with the comebacking Jayjay Helterbrand, formed a strong backcourt tandem, which ABC Sports later dubbed as the "Fast and the Furious". Their tandem enabled Ginebra to win back-to-back championships. Caguioa also set his career high during this season, scoring 43 points in Game 4 of the Philippine Cup Finals against the Talk N Text Phone Pals.

    Caguioa had 4 chances to become MVP:

    He was among the leading players for 2004 Fiesta Conference and Philippine Cup best player, but lost in the media voting twice to fellow Ginebra teammate Eric Menk. His "bad boy" image was apparently disliked by the media.

    His output of 36 points in the 2004 All-Star Game would have won him the All-Star MVP, but the South All-Stars led by Asi Taulava and Jimmy Alapag stole the show.

    Caguioa was also the statistical leader for season MVP in 2005 , but lost again to Eric Menk in the media voting.

    In the 2006 Philippine Cup, Caguioa is still showing brilliance in his game earning Player of the Week honors thrice, becoming the league's leading scorer at 24 points a game, breaking his previous career high by scoring 45 pts despite losing to Red Bull in quarterfinals. He became the first guard ever to finished a single season as the league's leading scorer in the 21st Century (since Allan Caidic in 1995).

    Currently, in the 2007 Philippine Cup, Caguioa is averaging 24.7 PPG in the 23 games he is currently playing in the said tournament. He also lead the league in Statistical Points for the Best Player of the Conference Awards. Ginebra is currently leading the series 3-2 in the best-of-seven semifinal series with the Talk N Text Phone Pals. During the series, Caguioa scored 34,31,26,35 and 31 pts. respectively with a 31.4 point clip. Mark Caguioa won the 2007 PBA Best Player of the Conference.

    He was healing with a shoulder injury after the FIBA-Asia Championship held at Tokushima where the team SMC-Pilipinas ranked 9th overall.

    National team

    Caguioa was named in the RP Training Pool for future international competitions. He has participated in several exhibition games against the Iranian National team and the NBL team Sydney Kings in mid-2005, where he impressed the latter team's coach by scoring 27 pts. in the said game. He has also played in the 2005 FIBA-Asia Champions Cup held in the Philippines, in which they finished 5th in the event.

    However, Caguioa was eventually left out of the team for the past few months. It was due to national mentor Chot Reyes' claim that Caguioa has failed to appear in several practice sessions.

    He is currently a member of the Philippine national team that will compete in the Southeast Asia Basketball Association Championship and FIBA Asia Championship.

    2007-08 PBA Fiesta Conference




    He is from the Philippines, and Mark Caguioa is the best individual performer in the Fiesta Conference after leading the Locals in scoring in the 2007-08 Season.

    According to the recent rumors, Sydney Kings was really impressed with his performance, and they offered him a contract to play for their team, but unfortunately the NBL terminates the license of the King's after the club’s ownership failed to remedy outstanding player payments outlined in a default notice issued to the club.

    2007-08 PBA Fiesta Conference Stats

    Mark Caguioa

    23.0 ppg, 4.42 rpg, 3.0 apg, 1.0 spg, 0.08 bpg, 43.2 FG%.

    Efficiency Rating: 37.6028

    http://www.pba-online.net/players/profile.php?id=84

    Controversy

    A mini-controversy happened in 2005 when he spoke a Filipino vulgar word during a live interview of a game between Caguioa's team against the Sta. Lucia Realtors. He didn't receive any form of punishment from the PBA for his comments.

    Caguioa once had a rivalry with then-Sta. Lucia player Alex Cabagnot, who now plays for the Coca-Cola Tigers. It was mainly because Cabagnot broke Caguioa's scoring records at Eagle Rock High School. They had several episodes of commentaries regarding each other in interviews, and were seen trash talking in camera during their first two encounters.

    The rivalry apparently cooled off as Cabagnot failed to live up to everyone's expectations.

    Aside from being left out of the national team, Caguioa was recently sanctioned by the league for his failure to appear in the 2006 All-Star Game held in Cagayan de Oro City. Through his agent Danny Espiritu, he said he was then suffering from an injury and had to beg off from coming.

    Prior to the start of the 2006 Philippine Cup, Caguioa vowed to run naked (or half-naked) along the streets of Shaw Boulevard if the Kings failed to defend the title during a pre-tournament interview with ABC Sports. His team eventually lost the title, but he reneged on his earlier promise.

    On May 17, 2006, Caguioa was ejected during Ginebra's 99-88 defeat against sister team Coca-Cola Tigers for two technical fouls. The first technical happened after he vehemently complained a call against Tigers guard John Arigo. The second offense was for throwing the ball into the stands after a foul was called on him. The league suspended Caguioa during their loss against Air21 on May 20.

    He was fined by PBA Commissioner Noli Eala for failing to attend the 2006 PBA Annual Awards, where he was included in the Mythical Second team.
    Several newspapers wrote an article claiming that Caguioa is hated by the media in relation to his non-inclusion in the individual awards in the past.
    It is said that while these controversies produce a bad image for Caguioa, he still ranks as one of the most popular players in the league and is among the most favorite of Ginebra fans. Some also argue that Caguioa is either liked or hated by fans and the media.


    Trivia


    PBL commissioner Chino Trinidad is his cousin.
    He got his jersey number from the 47-point output he produced in an intramurals basketball game during his grade school days. It is also a combination of his father's favorite number (4) and Mark's own (7).
    He is currently dating Australian/Filipina model Lauren Hudson.
    He is scouted by the NBA team Toronto Raptors.
    He is offered by Iran basketball team to play for ten million pesos as an import, But he declined the offer.

    I saw him play in Indianapolis.

    (Sorry. It's just that anytime somebody posts something about a player I saw in Indianapolis, I have to say something. That was the best basketball event I've ever been to. I wanna' go to Beijing!!!)
    "I really like the attitudes of eagles. They never give up. When they grab a fish or something else, they never let it go. It doesn't matter. In a book, they write they find a skeleton of [an] eagle and there is no fish. It means that the fish beat him and killed him, but he didn't let go." -- Donatas Motiejunas

    You should make a profile for Carl English. He's on Canada's team and has been very close to making the NBA. He's currently a star in Europe. You can get images of him at flickr.com

    Finland's Hanno Möttölä should be definitely included. Four strong years playing for Utah in the NCAA, the first and only Finn to play in the NBA and a solid career in Europe should be enough to make the list. We'll probably also see a 36 year old Möttölä playing in this year's Eurobasket in Slovenia. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hanno_M...t%C3%B6l%C3%A4
