    Danny E on Bong Alvarez, Abueva, Caguioa, Castro, other star clients

    Apr 26, 2021

    DANNY Espiritu has too many interesting stories to tell in his close to 35 years of being the premier players’ agent in the country.

    The youthful-looking representative, who hardly looked his age of 74, was such a colorful subject, besides being a good story teller himself that his supposed one-and-a-half hour guesting in the pilot episode of SPIN.ph’s ZOOM In ran for almost three hours.

    Espiritu had a good time reminiscing especially when it involved the more than 200 players he had handled from the time he first ventured into the business in 1987.

    As a way to compress some of the agent’s curious revelations, Espiritu gamely took part in the segment ‘Fast Take’ (or should it be ‘Fastbreak’ since it’s all about sports) where he had to answer within seconds some naughty and trivia questions asked of him.


      Below were some of the agent’s intriguing responses which of course, were made in the spirit of fun and sportsmanship.

        D.E.: Iisa lang ang tatandaan ng mga player sa akin. Kapag may problem ka, huwag mo nang palakihin. Habang maliit, maliit ang solusyon. Pag pinalaki mo yan, malaki rin ang solusyon.
