Mark “Macmac” Cardona is a Filipino professional basketball player currently playing for the Talk ‘N Text Tropang Texters in the Philippine Basketball Association. Nicknamed “Captain Hook” because of his patented teardrop shots, otherwise known as the running hook, Cardona owes his moniker to former UAAP commentator Jude Turcuato.
Playing as a shooting guard or the No.2 spot, Cardona is one of a few players who can create, execute and complete a play with very little assistance from his teammates. With a decent shot from the outside, the ability to dish out assists, and a steady dribbling skill, he is considered a triple-threat on the hardcourt. He is considered by some as the most prolific scorer in the PBA today due to his scoring abilities and his consistency.
