Myla Pablo’s Most Valuable Player moments have been tinged with bitterness.

Last year, when the 24-year-old received her first MVP award in the PVL Open Conference, she saw the Lady Warriors’ three straight championship dynasty crash after losing to Bali Pure.

Wednesday afternoon, the 5-foot-10 was still nursing a back injury and frustrations when she accepted the Reinforced Conference MVP.

Just a week ago, Pablo was wasting away on the sidelines after suffering the back injury during the official warm-ups of their do-or-die match against the Creamline Cool Smashers.

As Pablo continued to reiterate, it was Pocari Sweat’s biggest match and she could not play. She does not feel too valuable.Tiebreaker Times Myla Pablo still rues missing do-or-die match after bagging 2nd MVP News PVL Volleyball  Pocari Sweat-Air Force Lady Warriors Myla Pablo 2018 PVL Women's Reinforced Conference 2018 PVL Season

“Do-or-die nga namin tapos hindi ako nakalaro. Medyo masakit pa rin, sama mo na sa sakit sa likod,” Pablo told Tiebreaker Times.

“Ang hirap kasi sa pakiramdam ng hindi ka makatulong sa teammates mo sa loob ng court. Sobrang importante kasi noong mga games namin.”

Pablo yearns for championships, fow which she would easily trade her MVP trophies.

“Mas okay pa rin kapag champion. Kasi kapag MVP, individual award lang eh. Ang volleyball is a team sport. Mas importante talaga sa volleyball na magaling kayo as a team,” the product of National University expressed.

“Happy pa rin ako. Pero mas masaya sana kung lahat kami sa team happy. Sa championship mo lang mararamdaman ‘yun eh.”

Miguel Luis Flores fell face first into sports writing in high sch9l and has never gotten up. He reluctantly stumbled into the volleyball beat when he started with Tiebreaker Times three years ago. Now, he has waded through everything volleyball - from its icky politics to the post-modern art that is Jia Morado's setting.
