PBA Draft: Perez or Parks Jr. for 1st pick? Legends debate

Lyceum star CJ Perez and Alab Pilipinas captain Bobby Ray Parks Jr. are the concensus top-two picks for the upcoming 2018 PBA Draft this Sunday. What's unsure, however, is who Columbian Dyip, the owner of this year's top pick, should actually draft. PBA legends Gary David and Dondon Hontiveros were on hand at The Score's studio along with LA Tenorio and Beau Belga last Thursday to break down the exciting rivalry of sorts between Perez and Parks that's been adding spice to the PBA Draft.

Who ya got? — The Score (@TheScorePH) December 13, 2018 The question: Who should go first, and why?

They all cited Perez's all-around game, his defense, and his ability to lead by example after two seasons with Lyceum.  What sets his apart, says Tenorio, was his willingness to learn, which is as important as any trait, said the Ginebra guard. Watch the entire breakdown below: .....»»
