Allan Caidic “The Triggerman” Player Profile Philippine Basketball Team
English

“The Triggerman” Alan Vito Flores Caidic better known as Allan, was born on 15th of June 1963 in Pasig City. Caidic was drafted to the PBA in 1987, and also played for the Philippine Basketball Team several times. Arguably the greatest Filipino Three Point Shooter of all time, Caidic strikes fear to any defensive opposition.

If there was one cager hotshot that the powerhouse Chinese and Korean teams feared the most in Asia, it was the player with jersey number “8” – markedman Allan Caidic. A deadly lefty, he could shoot bombs beyond the arc with a flick of his hand amidst a phalanx of defenders. Hence, he was named the “Triggerman”. He was the most prolific three-point shooter that the Philippines has ever produced.
