Who are the Best Imports of Barangay Ginebra?

Who are the Best Imports of Barangay Ginebra?

The most popular basketball team in the Philippines had its share of good imports. Here are 6 of the best imports of Barangay Ginebra in no particular order.

Nate Brumfield – 2011 Commissioner's Cup

Brumfield averaged 24 points and 12 rebounds during the 2011 Commissioners Cup. He was instrumental for making Barangay Ginebra a contender during the season and it is also the same year when Mark Caguiao received his MVP award.

Chris Alexander – 2008 Fiesta Conference

This import is deserving to be one of the best imports for Ginebra as he along with Barangay Ginebra veteran point guard Jayjay Helterbrand was mainly responsible for taking the Gin Kings to the finals which they eventually prevailed in after a hard fought battle against Air 21. Alexander averages 19 points and 20 rebounds.

Wes Matthews – 1991 Third Conference

Wes Matthews had a long career in basketball stretching from 1980 when he was drafted 4th overall by the Washington Bullets until his last professional stint in 1996. Wes Mathews is also a 2-time NBA champion with the Los Angeles Lakers. Averging 7.9 points in the NBA, he dominated the PBA and became one of the best imports that Ginebra ever had. Matthews could have a PBA champion as well but Alaska Milkmen then defeated Ginebra in the finals 3 games to 1.

Wes is the father of current NBA Portland Trail Blazer player Wesley Matthews.

Carlos Briggs – 1989 Reinforced Conference (Añejo Rum 65ers)

Carlos Briggs was one of the iconic imports of Ginebra. He was a scoring machine who was averaging 62.1 points in 24 games. Unfortunately, that scoring did not translate to a championship as they fell second place to San Miguel Beermen. He once hit 89 points in a single game.

Jamie Waller – 1988 Open Conference ( No Photo) 

Jamie Waller now at 52 was a native of Virginia. He had a brief stint in the NBA being drafted in the 3rd round by the Nets. He went on to play with the Continental Basketball Association and won the league's 1988 Rookie of the year award, the same year when he won the best import award for his stint with Ginebra.

Michael Hackett – 1985 Reinforced Conference

He was among the highest scoring imports in PBA history setting a then PBA record of 103 points against Great Taste in a game on November 21, 1985. This was later broken by Tony Harris' 105 points. In that same conference he won the PBA's Best Import of the Conference Award. The following year, he teamed up with Billy Ray Bates, forming what is considered to be the greatest import tandem in PBA history, leading Ginebra to the 1986 Open Conference title.
