Marc Pingris acted not only as enforcer for teams in the PBA and the Philippine Basketball Team, but as an adrenaline-inducing power player. Marc may not have the height ceiling other inside players possessed, but he made-up for it with incredible will and bestial strength. Pingris can turn the momentum of any game, and he combined it with his moves like stellar dunks, power rebounds, tear-drop and a one-hander.
