PBA Awarded SMB Center June Mar Fajardo’s Third Straight MVP

PBA – On Thursday October 14, the Philippine Basketball Association (PBA) held their 2016 Annual Leo Awards to give honored to some PBA players that shows excellent performance in the game of basketball this season.

Several awards was given to some notable players that rise above from the rest of professional basketball but the biggest award belongs to San Miguel Beer Center Jun Mar “The Kracken” Fajardo.  

It was Fajardo’s third consecutive PBA MVP Award and making him as the only PBA player to win the MVP award third straight season while tied William "Bogs" Adornado for three MVP throipies.

Jun Mar Fajardo beat co-members in first mythical team Calvin Abueva of Alaska and Jason Castro of TNT KaTropa for the 2016 MVP Awards.

The three time MVP Fajardo, is only one MVP away from tying retired PBA player’s and superstars during their time Star Hotshots team manager Alvin Patrimonio and El-Presidente Ramon Fernandez which both won four PBA MVP in their entire PBA career.

At only 26 years old of age Jun Mar has a very good chance of tying or even surpassing the record of Alvin Patrimonio and Ramon Fernandez. At 6 foot 11 inches, the dominance and reign of Fajardo inside the paint might continue in the next several season, as it seems that no one in today’s PBA players can match the power of “The Kracken”.

Aside from the Most Valuable Player Award Fajardo, also received the 2016 Sportsmanship Award and First Mythical Team Award.

Congratulations to Jun Mar Fajardo and more MVP Awards to come!!
