Ricky Brown

MVP Year(s): 1985 (Great Taste)
College: Pepperdine
ROY: 1983 (Great Taste)


Very few players could fire up the imagination of the fans the way the "Quick Brown Fox" did. His low-key demeanor and secretive ways had everybody picturing him as some sort of mercenary who came here like a Soldier of Fortune to earn lots of cash and eventually run back home to the United States. He was a lethal scoring machine who could also play the point and nearly led Great taste to a grand slam in 1985, the year he won an MVP trophy.

With his great depth from the perimeter, Brown led the league in scoring averages for three straight seasons from 1985 to 1987. He transferred to San Miguel Beer and helped the Beermen win a couple of championships. He was diagnosed with a heart ailment and had to fly back to the US. He is currently married to a Filipina.
