About ex - PBA imports who already expired:

Ex-PBA import dies penniless
SPORTING CHANCE By Joaquin Henson | Updated November 11, 2010 - 12:00am

Several former PBA imports have passed away since the league opened its doors to foreign reinforcements in 1975. Anthony Roberts and Jim Bradley were gunned down. Carlos Terry was killed in a car accident. Danny Knight fell from a stairway, lost consciousness and died. Bruce (Sky) King succumbed to a heart attack while working out in his private gym at home. George Trapp died of stab wounds from an altercation.

The other day, we found out from San Miguel Beer coaching consultant and skills coach Alton Lister that his brother James died about two months ago in Fort Worth, Texas. James played seven games for the defunct franchise CDCP in the 1981 PBA season, averaging 22.5 points. He didn’t last long with the Builders and was replaced by NBA veteran Jeff Wilkins. James was 30 when he suited up in the PBA and 59 when he died. His single-game highs included 36 points, 12 blocked shots (the second most by an import ever, behind only Andy Fields’ 13) and 11 turnovers (twice, ironically in CDCP wins over Presto, 95-69, and Tanduay, 117-95).

By Ronnie Nathanielsz

Wed, 23 Nov 2011

Alberto “Big Boy” Reynoso passed away last Tuesday at his home in Sacramento, California last Tuesday according to Ruffy Ignacio, secretary general of the PBA Legends USA Foundation.

Ignacio informed the Manila Standard that he had received a call from Francis Arnaiz who played alongside Reynoso in the early years of the PBA to relay the sad news. Reynoso was 71.



According to Ignacio, Reynoso whose young brother Cristino “Tino” Reynoso, another PBA player who passed away in 2008, “has been on and off various illnesses.”

This answers the query of brother Brightstar about Cristino Reynoso.

Dave Regullano - RIP
By bugleboy
10-12-2011, 01:50 PM

I learned recently that Dave Regullano, the starting center of the champion Letran Knights basketball team of 1970, and one of the pioneer players of the Philippine Basketball Association, died last Oct. 7, 2011, of a heart attack.

Regullano was one of the members of that storied team that beat the De La Salle Green Archers for the crown in 1970. Among the members of that team were Rudy Hines, the brothers Ricky and Molet Pineda (who later on coached the Knights), and Rolly Marcelo. Regullano went on to play for U-Tex and Royal Tru-Orange in the PBA.

Regullano is survived by his wife, Magdalena, the registrar of San Beda College Alabang, and also formerly the dean of the college of arts and sciences of the same school.

Arriba, Dave! Though you have gone ahead to that great basketball court in the sky, we will remember you especially for your exploits for our alma mater.

I have just read this in one of the sites:

It's former Tanduay player David Supnet who died in that Air Philippines crash off Samal Island in Davao. I can't forget that flight because a friend of mine also perished in that same accident.


Other PBA players who are now playing in the big court in the sky:

Fort Acuna - suicide after he was fired as Toyota coach on national television
Teddy Alfarero
Alfie Almario
Gido Babilonia
Rey Cuenco
Alex Clarino
Larry Mumar
Jun Papa
Ricky Pineda - fell of the running board of a public bus
Danny Pribdhas - murdered when robbers entered his house
Jack Tanuan
Arnie Tuadles - murdered over a card game dispute

Former Ginebra import Jackson Vroman found dead in pool at California home
InterAksyon.com · Tuesday, June 30, 2015 · 8:57 am


Naturalized Lebanese player and former Ginebra import Jackson Vroman was found dead Monday in a swimming pool at his California home. He was 34.

The Salt Lake Tribune, based in Utah where Vroman is a native, and the The Des Moines Register confirmed the news, disputing earlier reports by lebanesebasketball.net and his college, Iowa State University, that he was killed in a car crash.

The cause of the death was not immediately known, although social media star Dan Bilzerian, who claims to be a friend of Vroman, recounted how the Lebanese star was killed in an unfortunate accident inside his home.

“He was sitting down, he got up to go inside the house, tripped on the stairs, hit his head and drown in the pool,” Bilzerian tweeted.

Vroman played for Ginebra in 2012 and led the team to the Commissioner’s Cup semifinals. He averaged 16.64 points, 12 rebounds and 4.09 steals during his one-conference stint in the PBA.

A scoring power forward, he was also part of a formidable Lebanon squad that figured in many battles against the Philippines on the international stage.

With him in the team, Lebanon placed fourth in the 2009 FIBA Asia Championship and earned a wildcard to play in the 2010 FIBA World Championship.

A son of former NBA player Brett who played in the 1980s, Vroman was picked in the second round of the 2004 NBA Draft by the Chicago Bulls. He bounced around the league, suiting up for the Suns and the then-New Orleans Hornets before playing overseas in China, Spain and the Philippines.

Great read guys! brings back a lot of memories for me...thanks joey!...
for trivia: ricky pineda of the letran knights had just set a single game high score of 57 points
i think in 1970 or '71..and this high score was broken by the greatest archer of them all, Lim Eng Beng ,
who scored 55 or more in 1974 or '75...Lim Eng Beng and Francis Arnaiz even played the first one-on-one
exhibition during the ateneo vs la salle game in 1975. It ended in a draw... The first closed door final game
NCAA championship match was played between ateneo vs san beda red lions ( JV Yango, Chito Loyzaga &
Chuck Bareiro) in 1976 i guess, to avoid further rumbles from the two schools.
During the early '70s, the most feared NCAA teams were from the Jose Rizal Heavy Bombers, back-stopped
by the David & Phillip Cezar bros, 6-6 center Ed Carvajal and the king bomber at the time, Jess Sta. Maria...
and the San Sebastian Stags headed by Dave Supnet, Boy Mora, Norbie Rivera and Benjie Cleofas...
Mapua was then led by king cardinal Fortunato Co.... Dave Supnet already suffered a major injury while still
in the NCAA courtesy of San Beda's Dave Brodett, which greatly affected Supnet's efficiency in the MICAA.

Whatever happened to former MICAA imports Big Billy Robinson, Tom Cowart, Bruce Scranton & Charles Walker?
Till next time guys!!!...cheers!!!
