Armed with incredible athleticism, Rey Guevarra is widely known as a slam dunk artist in the PBA. But aside from his explosiveness to the hope, the former Letran standout also has a smooth jumper in his arsenal, making him one of the more versatile players in the league.

Playing time has been limited for Gueverra in the last year, though, as he makes his way back from a tough knee injury. A promising display against San Miguel in the 2015 Governor’s Cup points to a potential return to form for the high flyer.
