PBA: New jerseys, new title for Ginebra? Brownlee hopes so

Last year, with “Ginebra Ako” jerseys on their chests, the Gin Kings won the title and they look to have the same magic this season.

What do you know, it’s already been 40 years since Brgy. Ginebra entered the PBA.

That also means it’s been four decades of the fabled “Never Say Die” attitude in the league.

To celebrate the incredible milestone, the barangay will go retro once again as Ginebra is set to release a collection of limited edition jerseys for a third straight year.

This year’s set will feature the living legend himself Sonny Jaworski as well as the Fast and the Furious tandem of Mark Caguioa and Jayjay Helterbrand. The team’s future in Scottie Thompson and super import Justin Brownlee will also have their own jerseys.

The Gin Kings will wear new retro-inspired jerseys for the 2019 PBA Commissioner’s Cup. The new kits will mark the first time that the “Never Say Die” slogan will actually be part of the jersey design.

Last year, with “Ginebra Ako” jerseys on their chests, the Gin Kings won the title and they look to have the same magic this season.

“I hope it gives us another championship,” super import Justin Brownlee said of the new Ginebra ako jerseys.

“Last year, we got new jerseys and we won a championship. Hopefully the luck continues and we get another one. I think it’s cool, the ‘Never Say Die’ jerseys. I like it,” he added.

It’s the third straight year that Ginebra is releasing retro jerseys which die-hard ka-barangays can get their hands on by exchanging seals and caps of Ginebra products at available outlets for a limited time.
