Is Justin Brownlee Ginebra's GOAT?
Justin Brownlee continues to work his magic for Brgy. Ginebra.
After the 2018 PBA Commissioner's Cup, Brownlee now has three PBA titles in four conferences. The league's Best Import is a perfect 3-for-3 in the Finals.
Since 2016, Brownlee and Ginebra have enjoyed nothing but success together. If he had his way, Justin would like to keep repping the barangay forever.
"I wish forever," Brownlee said when asked how long he sees himself playing for Ginebra.
"But I don't know man. Just see how it goes. I hope for a long time, but I'm just gonna see how it goes," he added.
Ginebra's third championship with Brownlee has to be the hardest though.
The Gin Kings started the conference at 1-5, losing their first two games with Brownlee. But then Ginebra caught fire, and with Justin leading the way, the barangay made it all the way to the Finals.
Once it was time to challenge the mighty Beermen, Ginebra overcame a 1-2 deficit to dethrone San Miguel.
"I kept saying, the team you know, the morale of the team, everybody was staying positive, everybody was still came to work every day very hard, and everybody still sustained their confidence even though we were 1-5," Brownlee said.
"It felt like, I can just remember going to practice and the confidence of the team, it felt like we were 5-0. I feel that's a big thing we had this conference, everybody just stayed positive and just kept working hard even though we were down," he added.
Many people are starting to call Brownlee as the greatest Ginebra import ever, his numbers and his accomplishments certainly help him make his case.
Justin is happy with that but that's not what makes him go. Tomorrow, he'll be right back to work.
"Man, that's a great compliment, I definitely love the compliment. You know I don't like to think of myself like that," Brownlee said.
"I just want to keep doing good, and just keep working hard, and whatever comes with that, you know I'll take it," he added.
