In three perfect outings, Ratliffe went for 34.7 points, 21.0 rebounds, 2.0 assists, and 3.3 blocks as the Hotshots secured the no. 3 seed with a 9-2 record.

Despite playing only three games so far, Star's Ricardo Ratliffe is the runaway leader for Best Import in the 2017 PBA Commissioner's Cup.

Replacing Tony Mitchell, Ratliffe, who played for the Hotshots in last year's tournament, is the early leader for the award at the end of the elimination round, amassing an average of 65.7 statistical points, a full 12 points ahead of his closest rival.

In three perfect outings, Ratliffe went for 34.7 points, 21.0 rebounds, 2.0 assists, and 3.3 blocks as the Hotshots secured the no. 3 seed with a 9-2 record.

Taking second place is Ginebra's Justin Brownlee with 53.5 statistical points built around conference averages of 28.3 points, 11.1 rebounds, 5.1 assists, 1.9 steals, and 2.2 blocks per game.

Playing his second conference for the Gin Kings, Brownlee led Ginebra to its first no. 1 seed in three years with a 9-2 mark.

Blackwater's Greg Smith (52.9 SPs), Phoenix's Jameel McKay (47.7 SPs), and Alaska's Cory Jefferson (47.4 SPs) complete the top 5.
