Paul “Bong” Alvarez was once one of the PBA’s most electrifying stars, thus earning him the moniker “Mr. Excitement”.
On Sunday, March 8, his daughter is set to follow in his footsteps by serving as the muse for the league’s most winning-est team, the San Miguel Beermen.
Alyssa Muhlach Alvarez, the former PBA player’s daughter with estranged wife Almira, will take the floor together with the defending Philippine Cup champions as the league ushers in its 45th season at the Smart Araneta Coliseum.
The younger Alvarez is an actress, singer and a beauty queen while his father, who is a one-time PBA champion with Alaska, was the 4th overall pick of the 1989 draft.
He played 2 seasons for the Beermen (1995-97) and also had stints with Sta. Lucia, Formula Shell, FedEx and Brgy. Ginebra.
