10 Worst PBA Drafts of All Time: Number Six

  Kia or Mahindra or Kia or whatever car they want to introduce (I can’t believe they used the Picanto moniker even if they know that it means “little”) had this thought during their inaugural season that they would directly hire Bobby Ray Parks.

10 Worst PBA Drafts of All Time: Number Eight

  The 1987 PBA Draft produced Hall of Famer Allan Caidic and potential Hall of Famer Al Solis. But with just five drafted players and a record-low eight applicants, the prestige of the draft was somewhat tarnished.   The 1985 PBA Draft on the other hand failed to give the spectacle its inaugural oomph. Shell … Continue reading 10 Worst PBA Drafts of All Time: Number Eight
