Alan Vito Flores Caidic: The Triggerman
Alan Vito Flores Caidic (born June 15, 1963, Pasig City, Philippines) a resident of Cainta in Brookside Hills Subdivision, is a former professional basketball player from the Philippines. He is considered by many to be the greatest outside shooter the country has ever produced, thus, earning the moniker the "Triggerman" .

He played college hoops at the University of the East before joining the Philippine Basketball Association in 1987, where he broke several Filipino and PBA all-time records—including the most points scored in a single game (79 points), the most three-point field goals made in a single game (17 triples; breaking his previous record of 15 triples), the most three-point field goals in a career (1,242 triples) and the most consecutive freethrows in a row (76).

He has played with several PBA teams and won numerous championships. He played for the Philippine national basketball team including the 1998 Philippine Centennial Team.

Whilst in the league, he was considered one of the best three-point shooters in Asia. The vaunted Chinese National Basketball team recognized his ability by always reminding their players to be on the lookout for "Philippine No. 8", referring to Caidic's regular jersey number while playing for the National Team.

He gained numerous awards and recognitions during his entire basketball career.
