Gilas Pilipinas: June Mar Fajardo
"The biggest Filipino I've ever seen."
That is how point guard Alex Cabagnot described San Miguel Beermen teammate June Mar Fajardo. The former University of Cebu standout has made an impact on the PBA since being picked first overall in the 2012 Draft, winning the PBA MVP award in 2014.
It remains to be seen if Fajardo can truly bang bodies and hold his own against the towering and talented big men of the world scene. Fajardo played limited minutes behind Marcus Douthit in the 2013 FIBA Asia Championship and is expected to play sparingly as Andray Blatche takes the reins for the FIBA World Cup. - Rappler.com
