Alvin Patrimonio

When we say Filipino basketball legends, Alvin Patrimonio, 51, is one of the first names that come to mind. He played for the Purefoods TJ Hotdogs from 1988 to 2004 and he is now the team manager for the Purefoods Star Hotshots.

As a Philippine Basketball Association (PBA) legend, Patrimonio is very visible on small screen. He admitted that he had to be conscious of his appearance that is why he dealt with his hair loss the best way he can.

Thanks to MAXiM Hair Restoration, Patrimonio was able to avoid getting bald through hair transplant. This contributed a lot to the basketball legend’s youthful appearance.

On February 20, 2018, Patrimonio met with the press at the Fairmont Hotel Makati in Makati City, Metro Manila to talk about how MAXiM Hair Restoration helped him solve his problem with male pattern baldness. During a short one-on-one interview with him, I took the opportunity to ask him who he thought are the best Filipino basketball players of today.

In response, Patrimonio mentioned three names, which are June Mar Fajardo, 28, Jayson Castro, 31, and Marc Pingris, 36. Among the three, Castro is the shortest as he stands 5’10” while Fajardo is 6’11” and Pingris is 6’4”.

Hailing from Compostela, Cebu, Fajardo graduate from the University of Cebu. His professional basketball career started in 2011 and he played for the San Miguel Beermen and the Petro Blaze Boosters.

Castro is from Bacolor, Pampanga and graduated from Philippine Christian University. He has been playing for TNT KaTropa since 2008.

Pingris is a native of Pozorrubio, Pangasinan and an alum of Far Eastern University. His professional basketball career started in 2004 and played for FedEx Express, the Purefoods Chunkee Giants, the Purefoods Tender Juicy Giants, the Magnolia Beverage Master, the San Miguel Beermen, the B-Meg Llamados, the San Mig Super Coffee Mixers and the Purefoods Star Magnolia Hotshots.
