MVP Year(s): 1979 (Crispa)
College: Mapua Institute of Technology
The "Fortune Cookie" told how Crispa would fare in the old days. If he would wax hot from the perimeter, the Redmanizers were unbeatable. He is a member of the 5,000 and 10,000 points club and many feel that if the three-point arc were invented right at the time when the PBA started, Co would have added more points to his all-time total.
The one-time MVP capped his career with Great Taste and ventured into movies after his basketball stint. He often played a gun-toting cop or a bad guy firing at will. But the mention of his name will always conjure images of shooting of a different kind.
