The Elite turned from good to bad to great last PBA 43rd season.

During the 2017-18 PBA Philippine Cup, they have logged five victories but failed to make it to the quarterfinals round.

Then in the 2018 PBA Commissioner’s Cup, they only logged one victory. That conference, Blackwater became the punching bag of other PBA teams.

They have recalled the services of Henry Walker late in the second conference, but even they have the leadership of Walker their losing streak continues.

Then in the 2018 PBA Governors’ Cup, they improved a lot and registered their best win-loss record (7-4). However, they bowed down to the eventual champion, the Magnolia Hotshots Pambansang Manok in the quarterfinals round.

Their worst record in last season’s second conference gave them the second overall pick rights in the just concluded 2018 PBA Rookie Draft.

That pick turned out to be the two-time ABL Most Valuable Player, Bobby Ray Parks Jr. However, fans of the Elite needs to wait for second conference after Parks Jr., commitment with the Alab Pilipinas is over.

Poy Erram left the team but the franchise received two of the best crops of the draft.

They received Paul Desiderio and Abu Tratter from the trade with the NLEX Road Warriors.

Erram was the face of Blackwater during his stint with the team. It will be now the time of Allein Maliksi, Mac Belo and Raymar Jose to takeover.
