LIST NARROWS FOR PBA HALL OF FAME PICKS
10 players, Kume Jun B head 20 nominees
Tuesday, 17 March 2009

A list of 10 players, including two imports, was submitted the other day by the nomination committee for consideration in the selection of the third group of PBA Hall of Fame inductees to be enshrined in a gala night at the Sofitel Philippine Plaza Hotel on May 23.


The Nominations Committee, chaired by Barako Bull team manager Andy Jao, deliberated on 14 candidates before trimming the lineup to 10, namely Bernie Fabiosa, Allan Caidic, Ato Agustin, Hector Calma, Samboy Lim, Benjie Paras, Ricardo Brown, Freddie Hubalde, Bobby Parks and Glenn McDonald.
The other members of the committee were Chito Loyzaga, PBA operations & technical director Rickie Santos, PBA media bureau chief and special assistant to the commissioner Willie Marcial, Tito Talao and Quinito Henson.


Also nominated to the Hall of Fame were coaches Tommy Manotoc and Ed Ocampo, referees Igmidio Cahanding and Dr. Eriberto Cruz, league officials Jun Bernardino, Carlos Palanca III and Walter Euyang and media practitioners Fred Luarca, Rudy Navarro and Romy Kintanar.


Jao said the committee is recommending a special citation for a fans category to recognize the PBA’s diehards.



Among the nominated players were MVPs Paras (1989, 1999), Brown (1985), Caidic (1990), Hubalde (1977) and Agustin (1992). Parks was a seven-time Best Import awardee while McDonald, a Boston Celtics hero in the 1977 NBA Finals, was nominated as a role model during his five-year PBA tour of duty.



The PBA instituted the Hall of Fame during its 30th anniversary rites in 2005. Enshrined in the first batch were Bogs Adornado, Francis Arnaiz, Philip Cezar, Atoy Co, Ramon Fernandez, Robert Jaworski, coach Baby Dalupan, former commissioners Leo Prieto and Rudy Salud, late league officials Danny Floro and Emerson Coseteng and broadcaster Joe Cantada.


Two years ago, the second batch was inducted. Named were San Miguel Corp. chairman Eduardo Cojuangco, Jr., coaches Ron Jacobs and Dante Silverio, former PBA president Domingo Itchon, import Norman Black, two-time MVP Abet Guidaben, pioneer pros Manny Paner and Danny Florencio, writer Tony Siddayao and broadcaster Pinggoy Pengson. Itchon, Siddayao and Pengson were cited posthumously.



Of this year’s nominees, eight have passed away, namely, Ocampo, Cahanding, Cruz, Bernardino, Euyang, Luarca, Navarro and Kintanar.



Every two years, the nominations are open for players who must be retired five years and at least a veteran of five seasons, coaches who are either retired or not have coached in the PBA the last five years, league or team officials either retired or not have served in the PBA the last five years and a late media practitioner with at least five years of involvement in the league.


A PBA Honors Committee headed by chairman Joaqui Trillo will be convened the coming week to discuss the nominations and select the inductees for the third batch. Other members of the Honors Committee are commissioner Sonny Barrios, former PBA chairman Tony Chua, incoming PBA chairman Lito Alvarez, Bulletin sports editor Ding Marcelo, Inquirer sports editor Teddyvic Melendres, former Vintage chairman Carlos Velez, a retired PBA player and a representative from TV rights holder Solar Entertainment.


Barrios said the Honors Committee will be the final screening body and members will carefully review a candidate’s qualifications. At least six votes are needed for a nominee to be included in the Hall of Fame.

nice idea but this is irrelevant unless an actual physical hall be built. no one remembers the inductees unless people go through archives of old periodicals.

PBA Hall of Fame induction set (http://mb.com.ph/node/219666/pba-hall-fame-induction-)

The late PBA commissioner Jun Bernardino leads six other personalities who will be inducted into the 2009 PBA Hall of Fame set October 9 at the Shangri-La Hotel in Makati City.

Bernardino will join legendary stars Samboy Lim, Allan Caidic, Ricardo Brown, Hector Calma, Bobby Parks and former league executive Carlos "Honeyboy" Palanca into the league's elite class after they were chosen by a selection committee headed by sportscaster Andy Jao.

"We're honored to include them in the list of Hall of Famers. We made a strict criteria for them be inducted in this elite class," said incoming chairman Lito Alvarez of Burger King during Tuesday's PSA Forum at the Shakey’s UN Ave. in Manila.

During his nine-year term from 1994-2002, Bernardino presided in the rise of Alvin Patrimonio, Johnny Abarrientos, Kenneth Duremdes, Marlou Aquino and Nelson Asaytono as PBA superstars.

Brown and Caidic were named the PBA's Most Valuable Player in 1985 and 1990, respectively, with both leading the Great Taste/Presto franchise to the championship during those years.

Lim dazzled the audience with spectacular high-flying moves while Calma shined in backcourt duties in helping San Miguel Beer win the 1989 PBA grand slam.

Lim, Caidic, Calma lead PBA inductees (http://www.malaya.com.ph/sep09/spor4.htm)

FOUR cage greats and one of the most beloved officials in the pro league’s 35-year history make up the third batch of honorees to be inducted in the Philippine Basketball Association Hall of Fame.

Basketball superstars Samboy Lim, Allan Caidic, Hector Calma and Ricky Brown lead the short, seven-man list making up this year’s Hall of Fame awardees who will be feted on Oct. 9 in special rites at the Shangrila hotel in Makati.

Also to be feted are the late commissioner Emilio ‘Jun’ Bernadino, former PBA chairman Carlos ‘Honeyboy’ Palanca of La Tondena and seven-time Best Import winner Bobby Parks.

PBA Chairman Lito Alvarez of Burger King, along with Hall of Fame Executive Committee members Tony Chua of Barako Bull, Rene Pardo of Purefoods and Atty. Mamerto Mondragon of Rain or Shine, bared the awardees in yesterday’s PSA Forum at the Shakey’s U.N. Ave. branch.

"After more than two months of deliberation, we’re happy to formally announce this year’s batch of inductees in the PBA Hall of Fame," Alvarez said in the session sponsored by Outlast Battery, Shakey’s, Accel and Pagcor.

"So far, there are already 22 players and personalities who had been inducted, 12 in 2005 and 10 in 2007. So, nakikita natin na habang tumatagal, pahirap na ng pahirap ang pagpili ng mga honorees, who are all deserving and worthy to be called Hall of Famers," he said.

Basketball’s Living Legend, Robert Jaworski, and four-time PBA MVP Ramon Fernandez headed the initial batch of players named to the elite list, while Abet Guidaben, coach Ron Jacobs and former basketball project director Eduardo ‘Danding’ Cojuangco were among those included in the second batch.

The Hall of Fame selection is being done every two years.

Chua said plans are being made for the 6-foot Brown to come here and personally receive his plaque.

Brown, the 1985 PBA MVP, is now a principal at the Ross Middle School in Artesia, California.

it's a pity that the pinoy 80's fans did not bother to record the exploits of these cagers. now, this generation will never know how good they were.
you type in michael jordan, shawn kemp, karl malone, or barkley and you'd see highlights of them way back in the betamax age. but this is not true in pba. honoring them is one thing. but having a living proof of their capabilities in their younger days is another. sayang.

Caidic leads Hall of Fame inductees (http://www.malaya.com.ph/oct07/spor6.htm)

THE player considered the greatest three-point shooter in Philippine Basketball Association history, the league’s longest-serving commissioner, now departed, and an import nonpareil lead the third batch of inductees to the 2009 Hall of Fame Awards this Friday at the Rizal Ballroom of the Makati Shangri-La Hotel.

To be honored at 7 p.m. are the late Emilio ‘Jun’ Bernardino, who passed away in 2004 after steering the league through generally placid though at times turbulent waters for nearly eight seasons, and five of the most electrifying players the PBA has ever seen.

Allan Caidic, who holds the record of most three-point shots converted in a single game (17), will join former San Miguel Beer teammates Samboy Lim and Hector Calma, as well as former SMB superstar Ricardo Brown and seven-time best import awardee Bobby Parks. Also up for induction is former PBA chairman Carlos ‘Honeyboy’ Palanca III.

The Hall of Fame, which honors selected former players and personalities of the PBA, was launched in 2005 during the Reunion Game pitting two teams made up of the league’s 25th Anniversary All-Time Team.

The initial batch was a virtual Who’s Who in Philippine basketball–Robert Jaworski, Ramon Fernandez, Fortunato Co, Philip Cezar, William ‘Bogs’ Adornado, Francis Arnaiz, legendary coach Virgilio ‘Baby’ Dalupan, founding commissioner Leo Prieto, founding chairman Emerson Coseteng, former commissioner Rodrigo ‘Rudy’ Salud, Crispa team owner Danny Floro, and TV play-by-play sportscaster Joe Cantada.

Making it to the second batch two years later were Abet Guidaben, Manny Paner, Danny Florencio, import and Grand Slam champion coach Norman Black, American mentor Ron Jacobs, PBA founding president Domingo Itchon, team owner Eduardo Cojuangco Jr., Toyota head coach Dante Silverio, veteran sportswriter Tony Siddayao, and former TV commentator Pinggy Pengson.

"It is with the highest regard that the PBA welcomes them to the Hall of Fame," Commissioner Sonny Barrios said.
