Joshua "Josh" Urbiztondo (born February 27, 1983) also known as "The Fireball" is a Filipino–American professional basketball player born in San Francisco, California. He currently plays in the Philippine Basketball Association, in a point guard position.
In 2009, Urbiztondo entered the draft for the PBA, but was not selected. He was later signed by the Sta. Lucia Realtors. In 2010, the Realtors were replaced by the Meralco Bolts. In August 2010, the newly founded team gave away Urbiztondo and its number 3 pick in the 2010 PBA Draft to the Air21 Express, in a three-way deal that brought Mark Cardona to the Bolts.
In 2011 Urbiztondo was signed by the B-Meg Llamados. In 2012 that team was replaced by the San Mig Coffee Mixers, who sent Urbiztondo to Barako Bull Energy Cola in exchange for a first round pick in the next year. In 2013, prior to the Commissioner’s Cup Playoffs, Urbiztondo was dealt to Barangay Ginebra San Miguel.
