More on Allan Caidic:

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.
