MVP Year(s): 1991, 1993, 1994, 1997 (Purefoods)
College: Mapua Institute of Technology
The Captain has ushered his best days to the door, but every now and then, Alvin Patrimonio will deliver a turn-back-the-time performance that will remind everybody just who exactly he is: A Four-time MVP in the league, Patrimonio was named to the list of 25 greatest players ever not just for his skill, but for his unquenchable desire to win and his willingness to put in a superhuman effort into the game. Patrimonio has earned almost every accolade the league has had to offer and has had his share of championships. He has represented the country as an amateur and a professional and was even the league's flagship when Robert Jaworski retired. A study in adaptability, Patrimonio moved his game further away from the basket when the players at the post got bigger and stronger.
