Longevity is a prized possession in the PBA, acquired through a combination of factors, including an unwavering commitment to conditioning and a tireless work ethic. Nevertheless, a more direct route to a lengthy career is having a name like Robert Jaworski, the league’s most recognizable figure.

The average career length in the PBA is notoriously brief, and there are numerous examples of collegiate champions who needed help to maintain their level of play in the professional league. Nonetheless, Alex Cabagnot stands apart from this group, as he is set to commence his remarkable 19th season in the league on November 5, when the PBA’s 48th season begins.

Cabagnot, who is forty years old, is not only defying his age but also the undisputed leader of the young Terrafirma Dyip, which is still pursuing a breakthrough campaign. Mac Cardona, a former PBA star, noted in one of his most recent vlogs that he will officially commemorate a significant accomplishment when he takes the court for the PBA Commissioner’s Cup.

Cardona remarked jokingly, “You’re the only one in our group who’s been arrested, right? How ridiculous! Grabe na kayo!” (You’re the last remaining player from our group, correct? You are not what you seem.) This playful interplay highlights the extraordinary nature of Cabagnot’s career.

Cabagnot’s voyage began when the now-defunct Sta. Lucia Realtors selected him second overall in the 2005 PBA Draft. At the time, he was a highly regarded rookie from the University of Hawaii-Hilo, with a history of breaking scoring records established by former PBA MVP Mark Caguioa during his time at Eagle Rock High School in Los Angeles.

Remarkably, Cabagnot is the only remaining player from his draft class, including Cardona, Jay Washington, Larry Fonacier, Denok Miranda, Jordan Salvador, Nio Canaleta, Leo Najorda, and Mark Macapagal.

Cabagnot boasted in a recent vlog that their selection class is the best in PBA history. Terrafirma team manager Ronald Tubid, who was recruited in 2003 alongside players Jimmy Alapag, Mike Cortez, Harvey Carey, Cyrus Baguio, Rommel Adducul, Brandon Cablay, and Enrique Villanueva, disputed his claim. Tubid joked, “Excuse me, 2003, bro,” implying that their cohort was the most exceptional.

Cardona interjected, pointing to Cabagnot as the source of the debate and adding, “Feeling ko sila”.

Through these interactions, it is evident that Cabagnot’s career is a testament to his skill and longevity and a bridge to PBA history, spurring amicable debates over which draft class reigns preeminent.
