A Look Back at One of the Greatest PBA Players: Alvin Patrimonio

Alvin Patrimonio: 4 Time MVP The Captain

Alvin Patrimonio Purefoods

One of the reasons why you followed and cheered for Purefoods team back in the days.

Alvin Patrimonio was a household name, now at 50, he continues to serve the same team that he played for over 17 years.  Now a team manager, he is never far from the game but for those younglings that have never known or seen the captain back in the days, here's your chance.

Alvin Patrimonio was born on November 17, 1966. He studied at Mapua and went on to play for Purefoods TJ Hotdog, now called Star Hotshots, in 1988.

Together with Jerry Cordinera, Jojo Lastimosa and Glenn Capacio, they made up the core of Purefoods Hotdogs which was the newest ballclub in the PBA back at that time.

At the start, the Captain showed brilliance in basketball and at 6'3 he seemed undersized playing the forward position but he was able to make up for it with his rugged play and intensity, it also helped that there were not as many tall players back then when he was playing.

Patrimonio held a number of records including the most consecutive game played at 596. He also bagged 4 MVP awards which is tied with JunMar Fajardo and Ramon Fernandez.

Patrimonio is also 12 x All-Star and is part the PBA 25 Greatest Players but his most important achievement is when he helped bring a total of 5 championships to Purefoods.

There is quite no one else in the league right now like him and honestly I am not sure there will be anymore 6'3 forward who can dominate the league like what he has done during his years.

Here is a look back on some of Alvin Patrimonio's highlights:
