Allen Durham bags third Govs’ Cup Best Import award

After serving as the rock of the Meralco Bolts, Allen Durham was crowned as the Best Import of the 2019 PBA Governors’ Cup, Wednesday evening at the SMART Araneta Coliseum.

The hulking 6-foot-5 import has now collected his third Best Import award. This is his third time in four seasons as top reinforcement of the season-ending conference.

Durham regained his throne after losing to Alaska’s Mike Harris in 2018. Harris and the Aces ousted the Bolts in the semis, eventually finishing as runners-up to the Magnolia Hotshots.

The cager from Michigan garnered a total of 1,170 votes from the media, the players, and the Commissioner’s Office.

Durham, 31, bested rival Justin Brownlee of the Barangay Ginebra San Miguel; ex-NBA player KJ McDaniels of TNT KaTropa; and super scorer Michael Qualls of NorthPort Batang Pier.

Durham was a major factor in the Bolts’ strong showing in this tilt, where they clinched the second seed and eventually made their first Finals appearance since 2017.
