    Re: Ronjay Enrile or Boyet Bautista?

    They are of different personalities and playing styles but the same intensity.

    Ronjay has a more flambouyant style, wants adulation(ala kobe) while Boyet is more of a team palyer.( Stockton).
    Ronjay wants to score and take the winning shot while Boyet would rather assist and look for the open man.

    But although they have contrasting styles, they are the heart and soul of the 2 championships for the Knights in 03-and 05.

    I'll go for Boyet B.

    Re: Ronjay Enrile or Boyet Bautista?

    Is this thread initiated in view of their having applied to this year's PBA draft?

    In that context, regardless for which team it will be, BAUTISTA has a better chance of makiing it to the PBA and play for at least 5 years. I would not even be surprised if ENRILE doesn't get picked at all. He is not a coaches PG, and he is just to small to play 2 in the PBA.

    We had a head start in this game. At one time we had a glorious 3rd place finish in the World Championship and was the undisputed power in Asia. But the world has learned how to play it. They may not be as good as us,but they have enough smarts to make use of their height. That is enough to beat us.

    I believe that Bautista was the Point Guard named by GAMEFACE.PH into its BEST STARTING FIVE OF 2005 so he must be better (sipseeep!). Seriously, not a few pundits wrote off the Knights this NCAA season with all the talent they lost to graduation, but Bautista, more than Aban, has shown that he can carry the team, surely into the Final Four and probably into the finals.

    I will stand outside. If anybody asks, I'm OUTSTANDING.

    Bautista earns weekly NCAA best player nod
    abs-cbnnews.com


    Boyet Bautista has already proven how good he is, helping Letran College win two championships in the past three years.

    But as the Knights gun for back-to-back titles, the pressure is even bigger on the 5-foot-7 point guard this year in the 82nd National Collegiate Athletic Association men’s basketball tournament.

    With six veterans graduating from last year’s champion team, Bautista is leading a group of reserves and rookies. So far he’s been consistent, producing numbers expected of him while directing the Knight’s offense.

    Letran has yet to lose, currently leading the pack with a 4-0 win-loss record. Its latest win was a 62-54 victory against PCU, which it defeated in the 2005 Finals.

    Bautista riddled the Dolphins with 30 points, including four pressure-packed free throws that kept PCU at bay. He also shot 7-of-13 triples—and his impressive play earned him NCAA Press Corps Player of the Week honors.

    "There’s always the pressure to deliver, it never goes away. So what I do is to focus on the game," said Bautista, who helped his alma mater win NCAA championships in 2003 and 2005, when he was named Finals MVP.

    Besides Aaron Aban, who like Bautista is in his final season and has played a crucial role in the two championships, the other Knights are either benchwarmers from a year ago or newcomers.

    Letran mentor Louie Alas, however, is confident of the leadership of the cerebral Bautista, who is averaging 19.5 points, 5.5 rebounds and 3 assists in four games.

    "You won’t get nervous at crunch time as long as Boyet’s around," said Alas. "He can create situations for himself as well as for his teammates. He’s the kind of player who makes his teammates look good."

    addendum...

    BOYET over Ronjay. They both thrive on pressure games. Ronjay likes the limelight by taking the winning shot kahit na pilit while boyet reads the situation and feeds the open man for the clincher.

    Ronjay has won quite a number of close games with his game-wining shots but he also made a few heartbreakers, the most glaring was the overtime loss to PCU in 2004. Rumours of game-fixing abound thus casting a shadow on his integrity. The following year he was out of the team.

    While Boyet continues to shine to this day even without the old reliables and big men, he has shown the kind of leadership coach Louie can rely on during crunch time. And boyet has the better attitude, more of a team man and more fun to watch with his gung-ho style.

    I wouln't be surprise if his star would shine even brighter in the pros. We'll see who between them gets to be chosen ahead in the PBA draft.

    The poll above says it all... and the recent pba draft.

    Boyet picked way ahead, with Ronjay barely making it late in the 2nd round, whew...

    Anyway, goodluck to both former Knights.

    Re: Ronjay Enrile or Boyet Bautista?

    In terms of pure basketball talent I'd say Ronjay Enrile overall is a better player than Boyet Bautista. Bautista is a good pointguard, the best now in the NCAA and probably at least among the Top 3 in all of Philippine amateur basketball. But Enrile is still better because he can play both guard spots with at least above average proficiency. Bautista is a classic pointguard who looks to make the play first, but is a typical modern pointguard who can also easily score if needed. Enrile however is a better scorer, period. He can get a score more easily than Bautista can.

    boyet bautista...he's more of a team player.

    just an observation re the performances of the knights-rookies in the PBA...

    boyet and ronjay were used sparingly by pfoods and coke in the phil cup.
    boyet had more quality minutes though. but eventually, both were relegated to the reserve list.
    hope they get more exposure and development in the coming conferences. i think coke's problem with ronjay was his inefficiency at the PG position and lack of height. with boyet, lack of height din cguro.

    mark andaya was traded to air21 after warming the bench at talk and text. this was due to the injury sustained by don allado, who was asi's main back up. so big mac was traded for yancy deocampo. hope this guy asserts himself more in the shaded lane in the coming years.

    as for triple A, mejo shaky yata ang start nya sa alaska. maybe he needs more time to familiariza himself with the triangle offense. but during one of alaska's last games, was productive offensively and even some of the plays were designed for him. he's only just begun....

    Re: Ronjay Enrile or Boyet Bautista?

    Looks like there really isn't that much room yet on a regular PBA rotation for the three former King Knights: Ronjay Enrile, Boyet Bautista and Aaron Aban. I can understand the cases of Bautista and Aban but not Enrile's. Bautista and Aban are rookies who happen to be on teams that are deep at their respective positions. Bautista has Noy Castillo and Paul Artadi ahead of him at pointguard in Purefoods. Aban has Willie Miller, Jeff Cariaso and even Eddie Laure ahead of him at the wing positions in Alaska. What is going on with Enrile? Chris Pacana (!) is taking away minutes that should rightfully be his.
