PBA: LA happy to be part of history as Ginebra wins 1k games
Celebrating 40 years in the PBA, Ginebra got its 1,000th win in franchise history by taking the Beermen down in a Finals rematch.

Following defending champion Ginebra’s overtime decision over San Miguel Beer Sunday in the 2019 PBA Commissioner’s Cup, the Gin Kings unlocked a major team milestone that puts them right in the history books.

Celebrating 40 years in the PBA, Ginebra got its 1,000th win in franchise history by taking the Beermen down in a Finals rematch.

The Gin Kings are the second PBA team in history to reach 1,000 wins just right behind San Miguel no less.

“First team ba to reach 1,000? Hindi naman? It just shows na yung team ng Ginebra, capable din naman na marami ng ganun karami,” longtime guard LA Tenorio said.

A veteran Gin King, Tenorio has been a part of many history-making moments for the barangay.

This 1,000-win mark is just the latest and he’s proud to be part of it  with Ginebra again.

“I’m happy to be part of that history again,” Tenorio said.

“Maraming beses na ako naging part ng history dito sa Ginebra, I’m very thankful na naging part ulit ako ng ganun milestone para sa franchise,” he added.
