Why Ginebra is Solid in Terms of Fan Support System

It was on October 22, 1985 in a game with Northern Consolidated Cement where Jaworski lit up the crowd with his drive and determination to win the game. With stitches in the lip incurred from a hit by Jeff Moore, Jaworski rushed back to the ball game and pulled up the Gins to finish the remaining seven minutes of the game.


During the play at the second quarter, Robert Jaworski was hit by an elbow from Jeff Moore and it caused him a bruise on the lip. It was bad that he had to withdraw from the game and immediately get some stitches. It was at the near end of the game when Jaworski got back, and the Gins were already on the 15 point disadvantage. But this didn't  stop him from getting the Gins a win. He got back on the game right away and surprisingly won the match leaving the NCC Team stunned at the the sudden defeat.

This history gave birth to the famous  "Never Say Die!" of Barangay Ginebra which sparked hope in every game of Kings. That moment of Robert Jaworski was so iconic to the people of the barangay that it drew them more into supporting the team and it's succeeding players. Ginebra become one of the prominent teams in PBA because of its solid fan base, in fact some singers also created anthem for the kings like "Ginebrang Ginebra", "Kapag Nanalo ang Ginebra" and "Nang Maging Champion ang Ginebra" these songs are proof of the fans' love for their favorite basketball team. Since then Ginebra has sustained itself a great fan base in every conference at the PBA.
