Fajardo a lock to win 2nd straight MVP plum

July 01, 2015

 San Miguel's Junemar Fajardo | Philippine Star File photoMANILA, Philippines – San Miguel behemoth Junemar Fajardo now looks cinch to be the first player to win back-to-back MVP crowns since Danny Ildefonso in 2000-2001.

The MVP race is virtually all over with Fajardo on the way to bagging a second BPC plum in the season. Terrence Romeo’s bid for the BPC honors may have fizzled out as Globalport failed to make it to the Final Four.

Curiously, not a single team that opted to play with an Asian import reached the Governors Cup semifinals.

Lakay on June Mar’s chances of back-to-back MVP awards: ‘Wala naman siyang kalaban’

June 30, 2015

June Mar Fajardo. Sports5/Paul Ryan TanThe last time someone won back-to-back MVP awards in the PBA, it was ‘Lakay’ Danny Ildefonso raising the roofs off of arenas with his stellar play.

Now, 14 long years later, another player is looking to match his feat, and it’s someone close to Ildefonso’s heart – his old protégé June Mar Fajardo.

‘Lakay’, who won the award in 2000 and 2001 while playing for San Miguel, said he would not be surprised if Fajardo, the reigning PBA MVP, accomplishes the same after the 6-foot-10 center helped his team reach the Final Four after beating Ildefonso’s Meralco team, 102-86, in their Governors’ Cup quarterfinal duel on Monday....
