2. Danny Seigle
In 1999, San Miguel traded its incumbent star Nelson Asaytono midway through the season along with Will Antonio to Pop Cola in exchange for role players Nic Belasco, Dwight Lago, and Boybits Victoria. It signaled that the Beermen were banking on rookie Danny Seigle to take over scoring cudgels.
Seigle didn’t disappoint. He led the Beermen to the championships in the last two tournaments of the season, and was named Rookie of the Year. He was a strong candidate to win the Most Valuable Player award, but fell short after being defeated by the top player on this list.
