I asked ChatGPT to give me its criteria on how to determine the all-time best player in PBA history apart from stats and individual as well as team accolades.
And this is what he said.
Impact on the game: How much did the player change the way the game was played, or bring new elements to the sport?
Longevity and consistency: How long did the player perform at a high level, and how consistently did they perform over the course of their career?
Clutch performance: How did the player perform in high-pressure situations, and did they have a reputation for being clutch?
Style and flair: Did the player bring a unique style or flair to the court that set them apart and made them memorable?
Sportsmanship and character: How did the player conduct themselves on and off the court, and what was their reputation like in the wider basketball community?
Cultural significance: How did the player impact the wider cultural conversation beyond the sport, and did they become iconic figures in popular culture?
Leadership and teamwork: How did the player work with their teammates, and did they exhibit strong leadership skills both on and off the court?
