Ray Parks a Future Gin King - Brownlee

(Photo from ABL)

Ray Parks is doing great in the ABL that Justin Brownlee called him a "future Gin King"

Bobby Ray Parks Jr., the distinguished son of the late Bobby Parks Sr., has been making a name for himself even before he could set foot in the professional ranks. After all, the younger Parks won back-to-back MVP while playing for the National University Bulldogs in the UAAP- leading the Bulldogs to consecutive trips to the playoffs. 

While it's unfortunate that he didn't have the supporting cast that could have enabled Parks to win a championships before joining the amateur league and eventually, becoming one of the main players of Gilas Cadets, Ray Parks Jr., is indeed, destined for something bigger like his father who had won the PBA's Best Import award, 7 TIMES- a record that is yet to be broken.

Now  playing for the San Miguel Alab Pilipinas in the ASEAN Basketball League for Coach Jimmy Alapag alongside Paolo Javelino and their World Import, Justin Brownlee, Bobby Ray Parks Jr., is again making heads turning as he has recently been named as the Best Local Player of the Week back in the first week of February after averaging 23 points, 4 rebounds and 3 assists per game during that said stretch. 

To begin with, Ray Parks Jr. had won the 2017 ABL Local MVP but didn't stop Brownlee from being so impressed that he called Parks Jr., a "future Gin King".

While Ray Parks has yet to answer calls to finally make his long-awaited jump into the PBA, Parks' impending arrival will be worth the wait especially if it happens that it's going to be the Barangay Ginebra Gin Kings who will be able to pick him from the draft in the future. 

And whether we like it or not, the tandem of Justin Brownlee and Ray Parks in a Ginebra uniform is scarier than seeing the Twin Towers of Greg Slaughter and Japeth Aguilar because both Brownlee and Parks have many similarities in terms of the way they play the game. They can shoot both from almost anywhere on the court. In addition to this, Ray Parks is a perfect combination of a shooting guard that has the height and size of a small forward.


Justin Brownlee, who is set to return to Ginebra for the Commissioner's Cup and the season-ender Governors' Cup, isn't wrong in wanting to play alongside Ray Parks in a Ginebra uniform. But then, a lot of things will have to happen first. Ray Parks will have to join the draft and Ginebra will have to make the necessary moves to make sure they will get to draft or sign Parks. 

After all, if he did join the recent draft, he would have the second pick next to Christian Standhardinger.

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".
