PBA: 5-time MVP June Mar dedicates success to his family
Right after officially winning a record fifth straight PBA Most Valuable Player award, June Mar invited his parents to join him on center court, honoring the most important people in his life.

Despite his great success and his unprecedented road towards true GOAT status, San Miguel’s June Mar Fajardo remains as the most grounded and humble superstar in the game.

Right after officially winning a record fifth straight PBA Most Valuable Player award, June Mar invited his parents to join him on center court, honoring the most important people in his life.

Fajardo reiterated his love for his folks in his official press conference, saying he’ll do anything to repay them for the sacrifices they made back when he was young and poor.

“Hanggang sa nasa posisyon ako na pwede ko ibigay sa kanila [lahat], pag kaya ko ibibigay ko. Gusto ko silang makitang masaya,” June Mar said.

“Nandyan ang parets ko, yun ang importante. Sila pinaka-inspirasyon ko, sa hirap ng pinagdaanan ng parents ko, naranasan ko hirap nila kasi napagdaanan ko rin. Ang best feeling na makita ko parents ko na masaya and isa ako sa dahilan bakit nakangiti sila. Sobrang fulfilling, sobrang sarap sa pakiramdam,” he added.

June Mar likewise dedicated his awards to his younger brother Jay, who he says was the one that helped him get into basketball.

June Mar said that it was Jay that was active in basketball in their younger years and was the one that tried to persuade him to play on most days.

“Nung bata kami siya mahilig sa basketball, lagi siyang nasa basketball court ako nasa bahay lang natutulog. Umaga pa lang hinihila na niya ako sa higaan, sasamahan ko lang siya. Dine-dedicate ko lahat sa kanya kasi nauna siya sakin maging mahilig sa basketball,” June Mar said.

“Siya dumadayo sa ibang barangay para maglaro then nung nag-college kami di na siya naglaro kasi 5’8” lang siya, di kasi natutulog sa tanghali,” joked the 6’11” MVP.
