Paul Asi ” The Rock” Taulava (#88) 6′ 10″ center of Air 21 Express one of the greatest and most dominant Filipino basketball players to ever play the center position in the PBA. He drafted to PBA year 1998 by Mobiline Phone Pals now know as Talk n Text Tropang Texter.
Why should Asi Taulava win the best player of the conference (commissioners cup 2014)?
The 41 year old center of Air 21 Express carry his team up to the semi finals do or die game against San Mig Coffee. as we all know the lineup of Air 21 is not have powerhouse player like Talk n Text, San Mig Coffe and San Miguel Beermen. Some of the player of Air 21 are newly in proffesional basketball and the team is lack of tall players like other player does. But taulava lift the team up to the top of does do or die match up.
Asi lift the team from a 2 game do or die quarter finals match against San Miguel Beermen. Asi dominate the rebound, defense and offense and he also score. He is main key player on that match up. San Miguel beermen has the twice to beat advantage but air 21 wins the 2 games.
Asi and the rest of the air 21 advance to semis against San Mig Coffee a powerhouse teams but air 21 manage to give SMC a tough series. Asi fight till the end. Unfortunately air 21 loss to SMC last night. But still still the heart of a true champion. A player who lift’s a team and fight to the younger and dominant team. Asi is 41 years old and still can play like a 21 year old. Asi is Ageless.
hope Asi should win the commissioner’s cup 2014
