PBA Finals: BPC June Mar wants that championship
Wednesday before Game 4 of the 2019 PBA Philippine Cup Finals, June Mar won his sixth straight Best Player of the Conference award in the All-Filipino, his 8th overall.

By now, everyone knows that June Mar Fajardo’s only concern in basketball is how to win more championships.

Still, Fajardo is such an incredible force that the individual awards just keep on piling up.

Wednesday before Game 4 of the 2019 PBA Philippine Cup Finals, June Mar won his sixth straight Best Player of the Conference award in the All-Filipino, his 8th overall.

Both numbers are league records by the way, he’s just padding his own lead against everyone else.

Fajardo is naturally thankful but for him, it’s championship or bust.

“Thankful ako na nakuha ko BPC pero hindi naman yun yung goal ko. Pero sobrang blessed ako,” he said.

“Ang gusto namin yung championship, and alam namin na hindi kadaling makuha yon,” he added.

Indeed, the defending champion Beermen were down to Magnolia entering Game 4 of the Finals.

But 31 points and 14 rebounds later from June Mar in Game 4 and San Miguel has tied the best-of-7 series at two games each.

Now, Fajardo and the rest of the Beermen are halfway into winning a record fifth straight Philippine Cup.

“Basta maraming championships sana para mas masaya,” June Mar said.
