PBA News: Will Terrafirma ruin mock drafts, pick Mikey Williams at No. 1?


Mar 14, 2021
EVE of the 2020 PBA Rookie Draft. All mock drafts have been put out. Suddenly Terrafirma coach Johnedel Cardel came out with an ambiguous statement that basically says that contrary to popular belief, the Dyip aren't completely settled on making Joshua Munzon the No. 1 overall pick on Sunday.
Just like that, all the mock drafts came in danger of being thrown out the window as the pieces begin to crumble from the top down.
The doubt has been cast. And it's not without basis. Did the pre-draft noise around Fil-Am guard Mikey Williams - or TnT's late move to get the No. 4 pick from sister team NLEX -change the mind of whoever makes the decisions for Terrafirma?
