    Rate the performance of ex-Falcons currently in the PBA

    Just wanted to get people to start posting in the Adamson forum again! Hehe!

    Off the top of my head, the following people are all former Falcons who are now playing in the PBA. What can you say about them? Please feel free to add the names of those I missed.


    Marlou Aquino (Sta. Lucia)

    Kenneth Duremdes (Coca Cola)

    Eddie Laure (Alaska)

    Melvin Mamaclay (Sta. Lucia)

    Ken Bono (Alaska)

    Kenneth Duremdes and Marlou Aquino already made their mark in the PBA.

    Bono and Mamaclay are yet to be seen as they were just rookies.

    Laure is like a rollercoaster. Minsan magaling, minsan hindi. ;D

    * * *Are Team B players included?* John Ferriols of Alaska and Joey Mente of Welcoat both spent a semester or two at Adamson before transferring to other schools.

    Iilan lang palang mga taga-Adamson na nasa PBA sa kasalukuyan.

    Masasabi sigurong si Captain Marbel Kenneth Duremdes na ang pinakasikat at pinakatagumpay sa lahat ng mga dating Falcons. MVP siya, bukod pa sa ilang kampeonato niya, at ilang beses na ding naging myembro ng RP Team. Siguro ang masasabi ko lang na hindi gaano kaganda kay Duremdes ay ang kanyang kawalan ng depensa.

    Marlou Aquino was a former Tiger Cub who later transferred to Adamson in the early 90s. One of the most dominant centers of all time in the PBA. Siya ang bumuhay ng Ginebra in 1996 when he and Bal David turned things around for Coach Jaworski's team after mediocre performances in 1992, 1993, 1994 and 1995. Aquino was a rookie of the year in 96.

    Si Kenneth Duremdez naman will be considered one of the greatest all-time slashers in the PBA. Galing niya especially sa fast-break plays. Later, nag improved rin siya sa outside shooting when he transferred sa Alaska.

    Kay Eddie Laure naman, he was one of the most dominating forward's when he was still playing in the defunct Metropolitan Basketball Association. When he transferred to Shell, medyo nawala ang galing niya. Siguro dahil na rin he played limited minutes. From thereon, nagpalipat-lipat na siya ng teams sa PBA. He can still play the game pero he lacks consistency.

    Mamaclay and Bono, meanwhile, are still young so may future pa ang dalawa na ito. Lalo na si Bono na 2006 MVP sa UAAP. Its just so sad na he has to take the back seat sa mga established na stars sa Alaska. Pero hintay lang siya ng time niya kasi I'm sure, he will have a bright future sa team. Look at Cyrus Baguio of Red Bull. When he started, bangko lang siya pero once he got the feel of the PBA brand of play, ayan, kumador na siya even leading the Barakos
    this year in point production.

    Pana-panahon nga iyan ika nga nila.

    stonecold316 ;D ;D ;D

    And that's the bottom line, because I said so!

    Ken Bono doesn't seem to be getting the playing time a former UAAP MVP usually gets. Is he injured or something?

    On the contrary, Ken Bono is perfectly healthy and has actually shed about 20 pounds from his amateur playing weight. Unfortunately for him he was drafted by a superstar-laden Alaska team and has not yet been given enough minutes by his coach to prove himself in the PBA.

    With Ken Bono going to Magnolia, how exactly is his playing time situation supposed to get any better?

    He found it hard getting minutes on an Alaska lineup that had Sonny Thoss, John Feriols and Reynel Hugnatan. His fellow rookie JR Quinahan saw a bit more action than he did.

    It looks like minutes will be even more scarce over at Magnolia, what with Dorian Pena, Sam Eman, Enrico Villanueva and Danny Ildefonso rotating at both the 4 and 5 spots.

    How I would love to see the spot-up three-pointers coming off the kick-out pass from Ken Bono again. It was an effective weapon in the UAAP and the PBL, and it should be a good weapon in the PBA. Will Coach Siot Tanquincen play him as a forward alongside the other bigs and let him take those treys? Or is he going to be buried deep in the long pines of Magnolia because of a crowded and deep frontline?
