The Kraken once again had an impressive haul Friday, capturing his fourth straight MVP award on top of a Mythical First selection and an All-Defensive team citation.

June Mar has tied Ramon Fernandez and Alvin Patrimonio for most PBA MVPs ever but Fajardo is the only one to win the award for four straight years.

"Di ko ine-expect na mata-tie ko yung record," Fajardo said.

"Masayo ako nakuha ko MVP, thankful ako sa teammates ko kasi di ko to makukuha kung di dahil sa kanila," he added.

Joining Fajardo on the Mythical 1st team are Alex Cabagnot and Chris Ross, who finished 2nd and 3rd respectively in the MVP race.

Also in the team are Arwind Santos and Ginebra's Japeth Aguilar.

Aguilar, Ross, Gabe Norwood, and Jio Jalalon join the Kraken in the All-Defensive team.

The Mythical 2nd team are made up of Jayson Castro, LA Tenorio, Joe Devance, Kelly Williams, and Cliff Hodge.

TNT's RR Pogoy is Rookie of the Year while Norwood is the recipient of the Sportsmanship award.

Ross, who won Best Player of the Conference in the Commissioner's Cup, is this year's Most Improved Player.
