PBA: Brownlee will be in Ginebra for a long, long time
Since arriving in the 2016 PBA Governors' Cup, Brownlee has now won three titles for Ginebra in four conferences.

Coach Tim Cone has jokes on his Best Import Justin Brownlee.

After Brownlee helped lead the Gin Kings to a third PBA title, Cone was asked how long he plans to keep Justin with Ginebra.

"He's done," Cone answered.

"We don't want him anymore. Ayaw ko na, bad attitude na," he added.

The greatest head coach in PBA history as kidding around of course.

He doesn't want Brownlee out. In fact, he plans to keep him in the barangay as long as humanly possible.

"He is special, and we're gonna keep him as long as he can stay healthy and as long as he can continue to play," Cone said of Brownlee.

"I think he's the measuring stick of all the other imports at this point," he added.

Since arriving in the 2016 PBA Governors' Cup, Brownlee has now won three titles for Ginebra in four conferences.

He's owned the Governors' Cup, where the height limit is 6'5".

Now, Brownlee has a title, and a Best Import award, in the Commissioner's Cup, where PBA teams are free to bring in reinforcements of all shapes and sizes.

For his part, Justin wants to be a ka-barangay for a long time too.

"I wish forever," he said when asked how long does he see himself repping the Gin Kings.
