If the PBA had a pound-for-pound king, it would probably be Arwind Santos. Listed at just 170 lbs., the Spider-man battles bigger men every night on his way to 17.9 points (#2 in the league) and 13.8 rebounds (#1).
But perhaps just as impressive has been the debut this conference of rookie Paul Lee, who averages 14.6 points, 4.8 rebounds, and 5.3 assists per game. More importantly, he is the leader of the current No. 1 team this conference, Rain or Shine. Lee’s entry has transformed the Elasto Painters franchise.
Who has been more impressive, the perennial MVP contender or the sensational rookie?
