• His Memorable Quote:
• “Tumataas nga ang balahibo ko sa saya. Ang sarap maglaro talaga (para sa Gilas Pilipinas). Ang sarap talaga ng feeling.”
• “Payo ko lang, ‘wag nila ako asarin kasi mas lalo ako ginaganahan,” said Abueva of Ginebra players.
• What others said:
“Antics are always a disadvantage, but competitiveness is always an advantage. Calvin is Calvin. He’s always going to try and be disruptive and that’s one of the things that make him a valuable player,” stated Coach Tab Baldwin of Calvin Abueva about his inclusion to Gilas Pilipinas 3.0

It is an open secret that Calvin Abueva was a self-taught Basketball player. It was once a daily routine for a young Calvin to watch his boyhood idol legend Robert Jaworski on television everyday at night. Every noon the next day, Abueva would try to mimic his idol’s moves, antics and playing style. Truly, the rebounding, scoring and competitive prowess of “The Beast” is reminiscent of the legendary Jaworski.
