* * *WHO are the best professional players to come from the Visayas and Mindanao since 1975?* This covers both the PBA and the old MBA.

* * *Let's set the parameters -- the player must be born in the Vis-Min area and has studied or spent a significant time of his life in the Vis-Min area.* Therefore, Vis-Min players who played varsity and commercial ball in Metro Manila are included in this discussion.* By the way, Fil-foreigners who trace their parents' roots to the Vis-Min area are not included!

* * *Unsa'y hunahuna mo? ;)

Arnie Tuadles (unknown before he broke into the PBA). Abet Guidaben and Bernie Fabiosa were likewise straight from the Visayan commercial leagues into the PBA.
