Ronald Tubid (born on October 15, 1981 in Iloilo City, Iloilo, Philippines) is a Filipino professional basketball player who is currently playing for the San Miguel Beermen of the Philippine Basketball Association. Known by many as The Fearless, he was also known, along with backcourt tandem Mark Caguioa and Jayjay Helterbrand, as one-third of the so-called, The Fast, The Furious, and The Fearless. He was also known as The Saint for modeling for the portrait of San Pedro Calungsod when he was 17.
Tubid was the only provincial player in the supposedly all-city college where he ended up being the team captain in his freshman year. He played college hoops in the University of the East in the UAAP.
Tubid was drafted by the Shell Turbo Chargers as the sixteenth overall pick in the 2003 PBA draft and averaged 8.9 points in his rookie year. In his second season, he improved his mark to 12.3 points per game before being named Mr. Quality Minutes by the PBA Press Corps.
In the 2008 PBA Fiesta Conference, Tubid suffered a dislocated ankle injury in a game against Alaska that forced him to sit the rest of the quarterfinals and semifinals. When the Kings were in need of a scorer in Game 4 of the finals, he came off the bench and helped Ginebra even the series at 2-2. Then when the series went to a decisive 7th game, he stepped up when his team needed him most, scoring 20 points in the game to help the Kings win their 8th title. After the series, he along with teammate Eric Menk were named co-Finals MVP of the series.
During the 2010–11 Philippine Cup, he changed his uniform number from 71 to 15 because it represents the date of his birthday.
In 2013 Ronald involved in a five-team, 10-player trade that sent him to Petron Blaze Boosters. The Blaze Boosters acquired Barako Bull top gun Ronald Tubid while giving away Jojo Duncil and Fil-Am rookie Alex Mallari and Petron’s 2014 first round pick (who turned out to be Anthony Semerad).
