Stanley Pringle is a PBA champion.
Just think about that for a second.
Pringle finally climbed the mountain and the former no. 1 pick did it with Barangay Ginebra after the Gin Kings successfully regained the PBA Governors' Cup title, once again taking down Meralco.
"It's a great feeling, man. First championship I won, first full conference, it's just a blessing to go out and get that trophy that I could tell my future kids about," Pringle told ABS-CBN Sports.
"I won a championship with Ginebra, I can always say that. Hopefuly we could get some more," he added.
Winning a title with the Gin Kings, with hordes of fans cheering you one, makes it a more exhilrating feeling for Pringle.
Ginebra's rich history also plays a huge part in making championships special.
"Extra special. Just putting on the Ginebra jersey, the history behind it, it means so much. It's bigger than me as a player," Stanley told ABS-CBN Sports.
"As a team, we're representing all the past Ginebra players and coaches, the great ones that came from here," he added.
