    Default Weakest PBA Batch

    2009 and 2010 were so shallow!

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2010_PBA_draft

    Most of the 2009 and 2010 players are gone, while there are still a couple of players from the 2005-2008 batches in the PBA.

    I'll go with 1990. After the two greatest batches (88 and 89) the amateur ranks were drained

    Exclamation

    Batch 2000 -- by then, nearly all of the prime amateur talents from the last two years turned professional via the Metropolitan Basketball Association (MBA). Paolo Mendoza of UP-Diliman emerged as the top pick by Santa Lucia Realty followed by Mark Stevens Victoria of FEU to Pop Cola and Dino Aldeguer of La Salle to Purefoods but was later signed by Alaska.

    Aside from the MBA, the draft was weakened because Red Bull came in as an expansion team and they were allowed to bring in the core of their PBL team. In addition, teams were allowed to direct hire one Filipino-Foreigner.

    In another angle, teams would rather directly sign tested players from the MBA because PBA rules then considered them free agents who do not need to enter the draft. The rules were revised beginning the next draft.
