This topic will benefit the millenials, or if you don't know things about the Ginebra history, then this article will make you understand more about your favorite team. Known for being the most popular ball club in the country, Ginebra has a lot of accomplishments behind them which why you are probably asking yourself "Why?".

Why are they so popular?

Before we answer that question, let's go through some facts that you may not know about Ginebra first.

Gary Granada, a known Philippine OPM icon who's been a Ginebra fan wrote a popular song which you guys might have sang on their last Championship. But, that is not the only song he wrote, he composed and recorded 4 songs for this franchise to show his love for his favorite ball club. 1st song would be "Ginebrang Ginebra" then, "Kapag Nananalo ang Ginebra", "Kapag Natatalo ang Ginebra" and the song that popularized after the squad after the 2007 Philippine Cup Championship, "Yan ang aming barangay."

Did you know that Ginebra is the first of only one of 2 teams to ever come back from a 1-3 deficit in a best of seven showdown which they did first way back 1991 season opening conference against Shell and the other one was their battle against Alaska during the semi finals series in the 2005-2006 Philippine Cup.

Ginebra will be battling Alaska for a semi-final berth and it won't be an easy path to take as they have a twice-to-beat disadvantage, but are you guys confident they'll pull it off? I believe YES. Way back 2008 in an import spiced conference the Barangay Ginebra started the conference with maybe the worst win-loss record at that period but still went to the championship and eventually won the title.

So why are they so popular again?

Why were they called a Never Say Die team?

Here's the answer, they have been around the PBA for quite some time now and considerably one of the oldest franchise in the PBA history, and through all of it, they've done a lot of miracles, well should I say they've turned tables multiple times, making an unfavorable game and standing eventually turns their way. Senator Robert Jaworski, the former Barangay Ginebra Playing Coach who is also and still the face of Ginebra and you might agree that he's considered as the Michael Jordan of the Philippines of his own time. Well, he started it all, let's go back in time during their game against the Northern Consolidated Cement. Jaworski was taken out of the court after he took an elbow that needs to be treated.

Minutes later, the living legend made a surprise come back with a taped lip and eventually made a miracle again after leading the team to a victory that day.

Never Say Die attitude compliments the Filipino culture and attitude that's maybe why people loves them so much. They make sure that they win for the fans, they dive and die for the ball and never gives up until the final buzzer. They made history and maybe that's enough, but here they are still entertaining the Filipino Basketball lovers. They sold out tickets in every Arena they played in and they show goodness to their fans. They sign autographs and have pictures taken with the fans and wanted to finish all of it as much as they could.
