 Calvin Abueva. (Nuki Sabio/PBA Images)MANILA, Philippines – Calvin Abueva might have a shot at becoming only the second player in PBA history to win MVP honors in his rookie year should he sustain his searing pace in the season-ending Governors Cup slated to start Aug. 14.

Abueva, the season’s second draft pick behind Petron Blaze’s Junmar Fajardo, is on track to making the official candidates list, being a strong runner-up in the Best Player of the Conference derbies in the Philippine Cup and in the Commissioner’s Cup.

Talk n Text’s Jayson Castro and Ginebra’s LA Tenorio are already official MVP candidates for winning the BPC plums in the all-Filipino tourney and mid-season confab, respectively.

Abueva and Petron’s do-it-all star Arwind Santos are both in contention on the strength of their huge numbers in the stats derby.

In the unofficial tally through the semifinals of the first two conferences, Abueva and Santos were running first and second with averages of 29.716 and 28.95 statistical points, respectively.
