The ASEAN Basketball League named the Top 10 ABL Players of All-Time during the 2019-2020 Season Launch earlier today at the Conrad Manila. The selection of the Top 10 players was made in commemoration of the league’s upcoming 10th season.
The players were selected based on their accolades such as championships and individual achievements as well as their years of service and impact in the league.
The process began with identifying the Top 40 players from the past 9 ABL seasons. The list was then reduced to the Final 21 nominees. After the announcement of the Final 21 List, voting was opened to fans via the league’s official website. The Top 10 was made official after a final deliberation, which factored in all the criteria including the fan votes.
The Top 10 ABL Players of All-Time are as follows (in alphabetical order based on surname):
- Xavier Alexander
- Leo Avenido
- Jerick Cañada
- Chris Charles
- Marcus Elliott
- Attaporn Lertmalaiporn
- Bobby Ray Parks Jr.

The selected players were honored during the launch with a short awarding ceremony. Marcus Elliott, Ray Parks Jr., and Wong Wei Long were not in attendance due to prior commitments while Leo Avenido was absent due to a family emergency.
