PBA: Gin Kings not out to get saved by Brownlee

Justin is wala sa picture, sa ngayon," guard LA Tenorio said after Ginebra got whipped by Rain or Shine for its conference opener.
Justin Brownlee is still with Alab Pililpinas trying to win the ABL title.
And so as Ginebra starts its 2018 PBA Commissioner's Cup campaign, the Gin Kings are not looking for Brownlee for help.
They only have each other, and Charles Garcia, to lean on... for now.
"As of now kasi hindi namin tinitignan na parang temporary import lang for Justin [Brownlee]. Justin is wala sa picture, sa ngayon," guard LA Tenorio said after Ginebra got whipped by Rain or Shine for its conference opener.
"Andyan yung import namin, kung sino man yung import namin, we'll deal with that. I'm sure the coaching staff also has a plan for our import that's why kinuha nila. I'm sure with coach Tim, alam niya kung ano gagawin," he added.
Replacing Shane Edwards as a fill in for Brownlee, Charles Garcia had a decent debut for the barangay, scoring 19 points while adding six rebounds and eight assists.
However, Ginebra received a 19-point beatdown at the hands of the Elasto Painters.
"No need to panic," said Tenorio even after Ginebra's rough start with Garcia.
"Di naman kami out kaagad eh, marami pa yan. We just have to look at the video and see kung ano dapat namin i-improve," he added.
