ALLAN Caidic is long retired, but that hasn't stopped him from putting up eye-popping numbers every now and then.
Long regarded as one of the best shooters the Philippines has ever produced, Caidic, 55, once again turned in a vintage performance on Tuesday when he hit 46 three-pointers and scored 142 points in an exhibition game in Candon, Ilocos Sur.
Sure, it was no more than a 'fun game' as Caidic himself described it, pitting a Legends side that also had Gerry Codinera, EJ Feihl, Gerry Esplana, and Pido Jarencio against mayors and vice mayors of Ilocos Sur which the PBA greats won, 184-73.
But come on, it's not every day that you see someone hit 46 three-pointers in any game - in two quarters (nine treys in the first quarter and 37 in the final quarter].
"Sina Gerry Esplana at Pido ang nagbuyo sa akin," said Caidic, who still owns the PBA record for most three-pointers in a game of 17 which he set in a 1991 game where he scored 79 points in a 162-149 Tivoli win over Ginebra.
"Sabi nila, break ko raw ang three-point record," the former University of East star added.
Caidic, who also wowed former NBA star Glen Rice when he hit 14 treys and scored 54 points in an NBA Asia Challenge match back in 2010, said the legends simply tried to have a little fun on this night.
"Katuwaan lang 'yun. Lahat ng pasa sa akin," he said.
Call it whatever, but this should add another chapter to the legend of 'The Triggerman.'
