Player Profile[edit]

Sharma is a solid power forward who sometimes plays the center spot.

Rocky Beginning with Shell[edit]

He was originally drafted by the defunct Shell Turbo Chargers in 2004. He was rarely used by the team that had Billy Mamaril, Tony dela Cruz and former defensive player awardee "Stonewall" Chris Jackson.

Improvement at Red Bull[edit]

He was signed by the Red Bull Barako during the 2006-07 PBA season. His game became more solid under Yeng Guiao. He gained more minutes when the Barako traded Enrico Villanueva to the San Miguel Beermen. He became a candidate for the most improved player award which Gary David eventually won. Sharma averaged 8.83 points per game, 6.07 rebounds per game in 20.98 minutes. He was part of Guiao's big men rotation with Mick Pennisi and Michael Hrabak the following seasons.

Sharma-Alonzo trade[edit]

On May 29, 2009, Barako Bull traded him to the Burger King Whoppers in exchange for Richard Alonzo.

Petron Blaze Boosters[edit]

After 2 1/2 seasons with the Express, he and Cebuano hotshot Dondon Hontiveros were traded to Petron.

San Miguel Beermen[edit]

In April 23, 2015 Sharma was signed up by the San Miguel Beer in 3 years.

Purefoods Star Hotshots[edit]

In April 23, 2015 Sharma was traded to the Barako Bull for Nico Salva and then traded by the Energy to Purefoods for Lester Alvarez.


Sharma is the half-brother of former UAAP MVP and teammate Rabeh Al-Hussaini.
