There is no one else in the PBA that has replicated or even came close to how Vergel Meneses played during his time in the PBA.
Being one of the best offensive players and a high flyer in his own rights, Vergel was one of the first local PBA players who captured the imagination of the fans. Two other players that came to mind is Samboy Lim and Bong Alvarez but Vergel Meneses in my eyes is the better player of them all.
His high flying, circus acts were a marvel to behold in the PBA. He was an efficient player who led his team to championships. He is one of those players who can match up the offensive contribution of an import.
Vergel Meneses is now 48 years old and he is currently a coach at Jose Rizal College.
