Playing style [ edit ]

In a when defense was defined as “an effort to stop or stymie the team’s counterpart”, Toyota’s style was considered one of the most and worthy to watch. With defense hardly known then, Toyota was a typical team that depended on their rebounding prowess. when you have an Andrew Bruce King, John Abe King, Ramon Fernandez and a Bobby Jaworski collaring the the most common (and entertaining) spectacle was to see a baseball by the rebounder to a streaking player on the for an easy twinner. Notables the recipients of the baseball pass the years in the Toyota lineup Segura, Cortez, Tuadles, and Legaspi. In the halfcourt, it was not uncommon to see a play that Fernandez and employed in the recent Crispa-Toyota game where Fernandez post up, Jaworski would at the top of the arc and wait for Fernandez to be double-teamed. the double team is consummated, either waits at the 3 point or makes a straight cut in the middle of the waiting for the blind pass of for an easy two. Another sight was to see Jaworski mapping out the cuts in the middle and makes the defense commit to him. He throws a behind-the-back blind to cutting slotmen like or King for an easy layup or it back to good buddy for a long range bomb from the arc. Hence, it a surprise to see Jaworski, Arnaiz and (in that order) being the 3 PBA players to dish off 2,000 in their careers.

For defense, Toyota’s starting had a better defensive stance their counterparts in Crispa. Jaworski, Fernandez and King the defense, it was like an impregnable Knox to penetrate the individual lay down by the team. It was a tribute to Crispa’s individuals’ capabilities to go this defense set up by the three. however had the edge at the bench they had noted defensive like Padim Israel, Joy Yoyoy Villamin, Bay Cristobal in 1983 under Coach Manotoc) while Toyota had to with Herrera, Javier, and Bulaong to provide the defensive
