8. Yoyoy Villamin
He stood just 6-foot-2, but he battled against bigger men everyday using his strength and athleticism, even drawing comparisons to imports; if Billy Ray Bates was the Black Superman, then Villamin was the Bicolano Superman. After joining Crispa in 1981, he became Alaska’s first franchise cornerstone, and ended up playing an astounding 17 seasons in the PBA, also suiting up for Manila Beer, Swift, Pepsi, and San Miguel — before playing a couple of seasons for the Iloilo Volts in the Metropolitan Basketball Association!
