TOP TEN ROOKIES OF THE 2019 PBA PHILIPPINE CUP





I don’t know how the PBA works as of this moment.

I guess June Mar Fajardo is still the man in the PBA and Terrence Romeo is still a scoring machine… as part of GlobalPort Batang Pier.

Ahihi.

First of all, Romeo is now with San Miguel.

Secondly, GlobalPort is now known as Northport.

Finally, I hope June Mar Fajardo wins the Best Player of the Conference Award because… you can have enough MVPs?

AHIHIHI?!? 

With that said… let’s talk about the rookies.



So here’s how my stats work:

Points have a 1.25 multiplier. Rebounds have a 1.5 multiplier. Assists have 2, steals have 2.5, and blocks have 2.75. I also took into consideration the triples and the turnovers. Triples have a multiplier of one while turnovers have a multiplier of negative one.

Bobby Ray Parks is still missing in action and I find the one year, two-million peso deal laughable. Only in the PBA would a top team sign a top rookie up until the end of the season. But then, Blackwater never intended to keep Parks in their roster as they were ready to part with the rookie a couple of days after the draft in a three-way deal involving Meralco’s Baser Amer.

Also in MIA mode are eighth pick JJ Alejandro, tenth pick Michael Calisaan, and twelfth pick Jorey Napoles. These players are unfortunately rookies for title hunters. The Magnolia Hotshots and Phoenix Fuel Masters will probably have something in store for Calisaan and Napoles but for as long as Javee Mocon is doing his best, expect Alejandro to languish as Rain or Shine’s second rookie priority.

CJ Perez is number one because he is basically the heart and soul of Columbian Dyip. He also leads all rookies in points, rebounds, and steals. Robert Bolick for a time went head-to-head with Perez but ultimately the rookie took a backseat for Stanley Pringle and Sean Anthony. Bolick ranks first in assists and third overall in points. Abu Tratter is a bargain at the third spot because he is the draft’s seventh pick. He is also second among rookies in points and rebounds and he is tied for first in steals. And finally, Javee Mocon is a clear cut choice for being a diamond in the rough – because unlike the first three mentioned, he’ll probably inherit the team’s primary responsibilities once the old core has left.

So yeah, for as long as Columbian continues to rely on his abilities, CJ Perez is the surefire choice for top rookie.
