Mind you, Brownlee is set to join the Gin Kings for the Commissioner's Cup AND the Governors' Cup

Rejoice, Ginebra fans. Justin Brownlee is coming back!

The 6 foot 10 import's name has been included in the list of imports who will be leading their respective teams for the PBA Commissioner's Cup. And frankly, if you're the Barangay Ginebra Gin Kings, would you choose someone else if a guy like Justin Brownlee has been playing well for your team, even helping your team win back-to-back Governors' Cup championships during the last two seasons?

As of now, Justin Brownlee is playing alongside Bobby Ray Parks Jr. and Renaldo Balkman for San Miguel Alab Pilipinas in the ASEAN Basketball League where Brownlee is averaging 22 points, 10 rebounds, 6 assists, 2 steals and a blocked shot in 11 games so far. So Ginebra fans will benefit anew from these numbers that Brownlee is capable of producing because he has done many times in the past for the crowd darlings.

Will the Gin Kings win the Commissioner's Cup championship with Brownlee onboard? 

That's a possibility as long as they won't get to meet the San Miguel Beermen as the low-seeded team in the quarterfinals. Why? Christian Standhardinger is why. 

Like, Brownlee, the top pick in the recent PBA is also playing in the ABL which made him miss the entire Philippine Cup for the Beermen. So, aside from the 4-time MVP, June Mar Fajardo and whoever import San Miguel will have for the mid-season conference, Christian Standhardinger will pose another threat to Ginebra's Twin Towers of Japeth Aguilar and Greg Slaughter. 

Another key factor that will determine whether or not Justin Brownlee can lead the Gin Kings to a championship is the health of the players especially the veterans. If you will look back in the past seasons, Greg Slaughter missed almost an entire season due to injury while LA Tenorio and Sol Mercado were also dealing with their respective injuries. If they can stay healthy in the long, they will be an unstoppable force just like Justin Brownlee.


We shouldn't be surprised at all if Justin Brownlee fails to win the Best Import award in the Commissioner's Cup. After all, that's one of the many things why Justin Brownlee is loved by fans: he doesn't care about individual awards. He only focuses on winning the championship for Ginebra. As long as the Twin Towers are healthy and intact, Ginebra will definitely be one of the teams to watch out for come the mid-season conference.

How Much are the Actual Ginebra Championship Bonuses?

Barangay Ginebra celebrated a back to back Governors Cup Title and the principals were in the mood for giving

Just what you can do or buy with the bonuses given to the players?
Last week, Ginebra captured their first back to back Governors Cup Championship. A few days ago,  they celebrated with the fans and today, Ginebra players are either buying a new car, a vacation house or enjoying their hard earned bonus money. 
But just how much money did the players actually get?

According to a good friend and a Ginebra insider, each players were given different amounts of bonuses depending on their salaries and performances during the finals. So, you can safely say that Justin Brownlee and LA Tenorio are the most fortunate. The rest of the players, however, seems very happy as well with what they got. The big boss of SMC is looking to make an impression to the players to keep them motivated or in Ginebra term "Ganado".

We were told that the equivalent amount could be 10x more their…
