2007 PBA Rookies Performance (Jan 08)

Below are the game statistics of most of the rookies playing decent minutes so far. Stats are as of Jan. 5, 2008, & courtesy of the http://www.pba-online.net website:

JC Intal
– 16 g – 17.19 mpg – 5.75 ppg – 3-pt FG 13.3 % – 2-pt FG 25.4% – 2.88 rpg – 1.75 apg
– 3 months in the pros, & yes, folks, JC Intal is still a bust. Miserable 3-pt. shooting, equally miserable 2-pt. shooting. Brings the ball down well for a 6’4″ Guard, though, so we hope he’ll find his bearings. Soon. Else he’d be out when some better player comes along next season.

Ronjay Buenafe
– 14 g – 27.36 mpg – 13.29 ppg – 3-pt FG 33 % – 2-pt FG 37.4% – 3.29 rpg – 2.07 apg
– 3-pt. Shooting has improved to respectable levels, but 2-pt. shooting has worsened. Getting good numbers, due to better playing & offensive opportunities.

Joe Devance
– 14 g – 30.57 mpg – 15.86 ppg – 3-pt FG 32.5 % – 2-pt FG 39.2% – 6.86 rpg – 0.93 apg
– 3-pt. Shooting has improved to average levels, but 2-pt. Shooting has worsened. Decent rebounding numbers. Still not convinced this guy is good enough for the National Team, or to be Welcoat’s franchise player

Ryan Reyes
– 15 g – 23.6 mpg – 10.73 ppg – 3-pt FG 28.2 % – 2-pt FG 41.3% – 6.07 rpg – 3 apg
– 3-pt. Shooting has improved, but still below average; Consistently bad 2-pt. shooting. Surprising rebounding numbers, decent passer, pushes the ball down the floor very fast, good height at point.

Doug Kramer
– 16 g – 18.44 mpg – 6.88 ppg – 3-pt FG 0 % – 2-pt FG 52.9% – 6.31 rpg – 0.63 apg
– Still the best rebounder among the rookies, still shooting well from the floor. Still can’t create his own shots even if you put a gun on his head. Decent role player.

Sam Eman
– 15 g – 12.33 mpg – 5 ppg – 3-pt FG 0 % – 2-pt FG 61.4% – 3.27 rpg – 0.2 apg
– Still shooting well from the floor, indicating the promise of his offesive abilities. Disappointing rebounding numbers for somebody his height. Headed for the doghouse, taking Gabby Espinas’ place, now that Dorian Pena is back.

JR Quinahan
– 16 g – 13.5 mpg – 4.31 ppg – 3-pt FG 100 % – 2-pt FG 45.9% – 4.06 rpg – 0.69 apg
– Numbers have remained steady, average 2-pt. Shooting, decent rebounding. Overall not too bad a performance thus far, but not too good either.

Ken Bono
– 15 g – 8.27 mpg – 3.27 ppg – 3-pt FG 55.6 % – 2-pt FG 40.8% – 2.47 rpg – 0.33 apg
– Good 3-pt. shooting, but didn’t shoot that many. Still miserable 2-pt. shooting for a big man. Minutes, points & rebounds have gone down, indicating he is headed for the doghouse. Will likely become Alaska’s trade bait, as long as some teams out there still think he can be better somehow

Ryan Arana
– 15 g – 21.4 mpg – 7.73 ppg – 3-pt FG 21.4 % – 2-pt FG 42.6% – 3.27 rpg – 1.27 apg
– Still shooting miserably from the floor. Getting his numbers on better playing time & offensive opportunities. Otherwise, mediocre performance

Yousif Aljamal
– 15 g – 15.33 mpg – 4.53 ppg – 3-pt FG 27.1 % – 2-pt FG 28.7% – 3 rpg – 0.67 apg
– Miserable shooting percentages on the floor. Has become a 3-pt. Specialist, streak shooter.

Chico Lanete
– 14 g – 21.14 mpg – 8.07 ppg – 3-pt FG 27 % – 2-pt FG 33.6% – 2.79 rpg – 3.07 apg
– Miserable shooting percentages on the floor. Decent assist numbers, but mediocre performance thus far.

Jojo Duncil
– 10 g – 17.4 mpg – 7.3 ppg – 3-pt FG 35.7 % – 2-pt FG 43.4% – 2.8 rpg – 1 apg
– Good 3-pt. Shooting, below average 2-pt. shooting. Surprising performance, though, for somebody who was put into the reserve list early this season.
