Thompson stole 13.0 points, 9.0 rebounds, 5.4 assists and 1.2 steals across the 2021-2022 season.

“I still can’t believe it. I just want to thank the Lord God for giving it to me, “said Thompson, Eric Menk of the Philippines, Joy J. Helterbrand, and the fourth Gene King to win the plum after the recently retired Mark Caguiar.

Meanwhile, TNT’s Spitfire Guard Williams has been named Rookie of the Year.

NLX playmaker Kevin Alas won the Sambay Lim Sportsmanship Award, and Terafirma Guard Xuami Tingson won the Most Advanced Player award.

The season’s all-defensive team consists of Cliff Hodge of Meralco, Irwind Santos of Northport, Kelly Williams of TNT, Geo Jalalon of Magnolia and Chris Ross of San Miguel Bear.

The Mythical First Team is made up of Mickey Williams, Thompson, Fazardo, Abueva and Santos.
