If the history of the point guard in the PBA was an evolution. Ronnie Magsanoc is the missing link. While Hector Calma dominated the 80's, Magsanoc came along to rival the "Director". And as Calma's career slowly ebbed, Magsanoc took over the throne among court generals while the public awaited the arrival of a certain Johnny A. Up until today, the PBA's "Point Laurente" continues to baffle defenders with his playmaking savvy and shooting skills.
Magsanoc's best year were in the early '90 when he was part of a shell team that got engaged in heated rivalry with crowd favorite Ginebra. He was half of the Mutt-and-Jeff Shell tandem that also featured Benjie Paras, until both players split ways and Magsanoc ended up with Sta. Lucia.
