PBA Game In Naga __EXCLUSIVE__
In 1997, talks of Abarrientos' potential participation in the NBA came, when Charlotte Hornets scout Joe Bettancourt offered Abarrientos a contract to participate in the Hornets' pre-season camp. Abarrientos, though, declined the offer to concentrate on his pro career in the PBA. In 1997 Abarrientos average a career high 16.7 Points and a league leading 8.6 assists per game.

Prior to joining the Tigers in 2002, Abarrientos was part of the RP Training Pool for the Busan Asian Games but was later cut. He returned later to lead Coca-Cola to a third-place finish in the Governor's Cup. In the All-Filipino, Abarrientos led his team to the finals against Alaska. After he scored 20 points in the first half of Game 1, Abarrientos left the game with an injury and was sidelined for the rest of the series. The Tigers went on to win the crown 3-1 over his former team.
He played reserve role to lead point guard and 2009 Most Valuable Player Jayjay Helterbrand, as his court generalship gave additional factor in the Kings' line-up. The Flying A made a memorable moment when he surpassed Ramon Fernandez as the all-time leader in steals on February 5, 2007 as Ginebra defeated the Talk 'N Text Phone Pals and won their semis matchup, 4-2. Ginebra would go on to win the 2006-07 Philippine Cup against San Miguel, 4-2, with Abarrientos hitting a three-pointer in a crucial stretch of the final game.
Enciso played two seasons of basketball at Skyline College, and then he transferred to Notre Dame de Namur University in 2012. In his junior year at NDNU, he posted per game averages of 7.3 points, 1.9 rebounds, 1.8 assists, 31.5% 3PT FG percentage in 22 games he played (he averaged 24.3 minutes per game). His senior year saw an increase in his minutes and production, averaging 13.9 points, 4.15 assists, 40.5% FG percentage, 37.4% 3PT FG percentage and 35.1 minutes per game in 26 games (started 25 of them).
On September 28, 2021, he was traded to the Terrafirma Dyip for Rashawn McCarthy. On November 13, 2021, before appearing in a game for Terrafirma, he was traded to the San Miguel Beermen for Alex Cabagnot.
Born in San Francisco, California to Filipino parents, Enciso has dreamed of playing professional basketball in any country but had to fulfill his mother and father's wish for him to get a degree before pursuing a career in the sport. He graduated a degree in Kinesiology. He says he patterned his game after NBA stars Derrick Rose and Kyrie Irving.
Listed at six feet and two inches, Williams played a total of 39 games in the 2014-15 NBA G League season, logging in 4.7 points, 2.3 assists and 1.4 rebounds in 39 games played for the Sioux Falls Skyforce.
The former Cal State-Fullerton guard then moved over to play for the Canton Charge from the 2016-17 through the early part of the 2017-18 seasons, norming an aggregate stats line of 5.4 points, 2.1 assists and 1.7 rebounds in a total of 49 games.
"The Philippines brand of basketball is unmatched in my opinion. The way basketball brings the culture together. Basketball is basketball it's all a part of the game," Williams told ESPN5 in a separate interview.
"The NBA G League was a great stepping stone that allowed me to learn a different language through basketball," he said. "From playing systems to the ins and outs of being a professional athlete. That truly helped me develop and slow the game down for me to play the game at a high level."

#DavidPomeranzInNagaCityThe firs two days of March for Naga City was star studded. Back to back events were scheduled for March 2, with a benefit concert by David Pomeranz and a live PBA game at the Jesse M. Robredo Coliseum.I was privileged to welcome David Pomeranz at the airport together with the organizers of the benefit concert and Avenue Plaza Hotel staff. AirPhilExpress' plane arrived at around 9:30 am at the Naga Aiport and welcomed Sir David with banner and smiles. Sir David's arrival at the Avenue Plaza Hotel. Avenue Plaza Hotel was star studded for two days. APH was also the home of the San Mig PBA Team.The board room was really spectacular that even Sir David was amazed with the gorgeous space.David's primary purposes was to help raise fund for the rehabilitation of the original home of our Ina, Our Lady of Penafrancia. It's his first visit here in Naga and he was scheduled to visit the church in the afternoon the same day he arrived. David is not new anymore here in the Philippines since he has been a frequent visitor for almost 27 times for the last 15 years. Imagine the length of time he has spent here in our country, he must have felt the love here and Naga City is just as privileged to have him around.His interest in maintaining the tradition and beauty of the church that can serve as inspiration to the people is what is important for him. Imagine the care and concern of Sir David for that "source of inspiration..Ina" for the people of Naga despite the difference in religion. Nakakatabang puso, there's the harmony and love despite the difference. No wonder, he is blessed with his career for the past 35 years and counting in being a singer and song writer. Photos during the PressConDavid Pomeranz and the media peopleWinners of the RaffleCongrats Ms. Deonalaine Figura @handpaintedsky for winning a gift certificate from CACI and Ms. Angelica Frondoso for winning a ticket to David's concert. Thank you for supporting the event. March 2, 2013 - Concert NightIt was a night of struggle I suppose, as scheduled,we were to arrive at the tent at around 7:15 pm but I was out of luck in finding a good parking space. The whole strip of Magsaysay and a part of the Balatas Road near Avenue Square was in full parking. Even the gasoline stations and sidewalks were used as parking space. And so we arrived around 8 already just a few minutes before the start of the concert. You can just calculate how long I consumed in looking for that parking space. LolOpening performance was spectacular by the world class Baao Childrens' Choir (BCC) who recently won 1st place in the 18th International Contest of Habanera Youth 2012 held in Spain. BCC sang five songs namely, Tuwing Umuulan, Circle of Life, Muntik na Kitang Minahal, Seasons of Love and a song that depicts a sound of a bird in Filipino language.The BCC is indeed CamSur and Bicol's pride in promoting our culture and homegrown talent. Sir David has a groovy way of attracting the audience and not to mention he can be a good ventriloquist haha. I, being among the crowd, felt like it was so nostalgic hearing songs during my childhood years being played during Sundays. Hearing the songs live makes it all the difference. I have never experienced any prom during my high school years, but hey, I heard the songs being used in every prom and it somehow compensates the real JS prom experience. It's different, but still it was a special moment, without the partner to dance with of course. The songs he sang were a combination of his fellow artists like Barry Manilow and also his original ones:On This DayI Learned It All From YouUndying Admiration(A Song from the Princess and the Frog movie)(A song from the carpenters)Trying to Get the Feeling AgainI Still Believe IN YouCrazy BeautifulI Can Cleary See NowGot to Believe In MagicThe Old SongsKing and Queen of HeartsBorn For YouAfter AllWhat Matters MostMs. Anabelle Regalado Borja sang If You Walked Away with Mr. David. Fr. Andrew Recepcion joined Sir David in singing Got to Believe in MagicWhat does Sir David Pomeranz have to say about Naga City?'The sense of well being' there's the loveliness, the happiness in this city. Naga is a beautiful placeThank you David!Meet and greet with David Pomeranz of the premium ticket holders.This is another wish fulfilled in my bucket list, to watch and hear an international artist perform live and to meet and greet David Pomeranz himself. Thank you to the organizers of the benefit concert, Fr. Andrew and the rest of the staff, Avenue Plaza Hotel and Ms. A for the undying support to Naga City Deck for this very rare opportunity. May you be blessed and more power!
