1. Ramon Fernandez
The only reason Ramon Fernandez played center was because he was 6-foot-4 and taller than most of the other players on his team. In truth, Fernandez had the skills and court vision of a point guard, the quickness and agility of a forward, and the IQ to play any position on the court.
In stark contrast to the brutish nature of early PBA basketball, Fernandez played the game with an elegant grace — a sign of just how easy the game came to him.
Perhaps it came too easy; many controversies hounded him throughout his career. But all his achievements — four MVP awards; many championships with Toyota, Tanduay, and San Miguel; all-time leadership in scoring, rebounding, and blocked shots — are enough to put him on top of this list.
