Individual awards

Most Valuable Player: Willie Miller (Alaska) (good choice)
Rookie of the Year: Kelly Williams (Sta. Lucia) (Hands-down winner)
Most Improved Player: Gary David (Air21) (probably fair)
Mr. Energy: Ronald Tubid (on the money)

Mythical Five:

Willie Miller (Alaska) (no brainer)
Gary David (Air21) (?, they didn't have much playoff success but he played terrific this season)
Kelly Williams (Sta. Lucia) (deserves this)
Jay Washington (Talk 'N Text) (? but too inconsistent to be a first teamer)
Dorian Peņa (San Miguel) (probably but no Sonny Thoss)

Mythical Second Team:

Wynne Arboleda (Air21) (I'm biased so I'll let my town mate get this :P)
Mark Cardona (Talk 'N Text) (should have been a first teamer)
Arwind Santos (Air21) (probably but he doesn't start games, tubid would have better here)
Danny Ildefonso (San Miguel) (good choice)
Yancy de Ocampo (Talk 'N Text) (I like Ali Peek here)

All-Defensive Team:

Nelbert Omolon (Sta. Lucia)
Arwind Santos (Air21)
Harvey Carey (Talk 'N Text)
Wynne Arboleda (Air21)
Gary David (Air21)

No Center??? It looks weird that 3 Air21 players made it even though they give the most points in the league. Gary David and Wynne Arboleda gambles too much on D. Arwind is more of a help defender but he gets a fair share of blocks and steals like Andrei Kirilenko. Omolon also gambles for steals. I prefer Sonny Thoss or Alie Peek over Carey Ali Peek should have been on the list even though his team is struggling with its interior defense. He is their only capable post defender. Ditto for Sonny Thoss.

What do you guys think?

I don't think Gary David should be the most improved player. He was a terrific player even before this season. He was sidelined for a long time because of an injury. Gary had improvement, but his overall game is just as potent as it was before his injury.

Another thing that I don't agree on is having Dorian Pena at the mythical 5. I know Dorian is a good player, but I think this spot is for Sonny Thoss. I would disagree having Arboleda at the mythical second team. At this spot I would prefer LA Tenorio. Though he is still a rookie he has shown that he can compete against PBA veterans.

What I disagree the most is having Kelly Williams as Rookie of the Year. :D Just joking.:D It's very clear Kelly deserves the award.

I guess Leo is the name of the guy in PBA logo, well that's only guess... I think Gary David should be the MVP even though I'm a big Alaska fan.
