7. Arnie Tuadles
Toyota had a star-studded lineup, so it was a shock for even the team’s biggest fans when the squad trotted out a little-known rookie from Cebu as its new starting small forward. But Tuadles shocked them even more when he became a great, sometimes dominant, contributor for the team. A rugged big guy who could run the floor, hit the outside shot, and destroy opponents on the block with his contra-tiempo layups, Tuadles won Rookie of the Year in 1979 and was named to the Mythical Five.
