Balls-Eye: 5 Best Power Forwards in the PBA


The guys with the perfect balance will always be the powerforwards. In all aspects they come in midway of Centers and Guards. But what makes some of them standout?

We'll find out as we run down the 5 best power forwards we have in the Filipino Basketball.


1. Ranidel De Ocampo

Ranidel de Ocampo

A.K.A RDO, he is one of the finest forwards any team would want to have. Ranidel's got the size to match even with centers in rebounding and post up plays. What makes him special? With his size, he could impeccably deliver from beyond the arc. A dangerous weapon for guys with the size advantage. R.D.O can take all sorts of shots depending on his defender.


2. Marc Pingris


Of course the Pinoy Sakuragi would never go out of sight when talking about some of the best power forwards. Despite having a relatively small size, he is a huge defensive obstacle. It is proven. Even the mighty Japeth Aguilar gets blocked and is having a hard time during post up matches.


3. Calvin Abueva

Calvin Abueva

The beast would be considered the player with an extra impact on the floor. He's got the intensity. He even gained prominence with the 'Calvin Crush' wherein he goes full speed against any defender and bangs it with his full body strength, not caring whoit is in front whether a center or a guard. He just hustles on both ends.

Another good thing about Calvin is his presence which irritates opponents and somehow gets them out of focus.


4. Japeth Aguilar

Japeth Aguilar against Marc Pingris

A 6 foot 9 inch gut with incredible jumping power? It is non other than Japeth Aguilar. Japeth's got the length and the strength to go all out.

Another good thing in Japeth is that his size does not hinder his speed. He frequently finishes fast break attacks in a spectacular alley oop jams. An excellent finisher and hype provider for the team and for audiences of course.


5. Rafi Reavis

Rafi Reavis

Reavis could match Aguilar's length but he is an even better player when talking about the battle under the rim. Aguilar could shoot from the perimeter but Reavis is more efficient when cleaning up missed shots and scoring in the shaded area. Reavis is a perfect match against this era's twin towers.
