Career highlights and awards

Ronald Tubid (born 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.

Collegiate career[edit]

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.

His former UE Red Warriors teammates who ended up playing in the PBA are Niño Canaleta, James Yap, and Paul Artadi.

Tubid first saw action for ANA Water Dispenser before playing in a star-studded Welcoat Paintmasters squad of Rommel Adducul and Eddie Laure that won the 2002 PBL Challenge Cup.

PBA career[edit]

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.

After Shell's disbandment following the 2004–05 PBA season, Tubid joined the Air21 Express and won his second Mr. Quality Minutes award while averaging 8.9 points in 44 games with just 11 starts.

At the midway point of the 2006–07 PBA Philippine Cup, Tubid was traded to the Barangay Ginebra Kings and was a key reliever in Ginebra's title conquest over sister team San Miguel Beer.

The next conference, Tubid made further improvements due to the absence of Mark Caguioa and Jayjay Helterbrand in the backcourt that eventually rewarded him with an All-Star Game appearance.

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, Tubid was involved in a five-team, 10-player trade that sent him to Petron Blaze Boosters. The Blaze Boosters acquired 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).
