On its 40th year anniversary, the Ginebra San Miguel team unveiled today its 2019 Never Say Die Jersey Collection featuring the “Living Legend” and the father of the “Never-Say-Die” spirit – Robert Jaworski, Sr. and his Jersey #7.
The collection also features the unforgettable “The Fast and the Furious” duo of Jayjay Helterbrand (13) and Mark Caguioa (47), fast-rising basketball superstar Scottie Thompson (6), and PBA import Justin Brownlee (32).
The limited edition jerseys will be worn by the team in the upcoming 2019 PBA Commissioner’s Cup.
“This is the first time in the 40-year history of Barangay Ginebra San Miguel that Never-Say-Die is featured in the team jersey. It is our tribute to coach Robert “Sonny” Jaworski, Sr. and the team’s legions of fans who have not only embraced and loved the team but also embodied the never-say-die attitude,” says Ginebra San Miguel Brand Manager Paolo Tupaz.
Though the team was formed in 1979, the year 1985 went down in Philippine basketball history as the year Ginebra San Miguel’s Never-Say-Die spirit was born.
The launch was held at the Monet Ballroom of Novotel Araneta Center, Cubao adorned with Ginebra San Miguel jerseys and mementos.
The event, hosted by courtside charmer Riza Diaz and sports analyst “The Dean” Quinito Henzon, started with the presentation of the Ginebra San Miguel Super Angels and a welcoming remarks from Marketing Manager Ronald Molina.
It was a solid night for reminiscing together with the featured Barangay Ginebra players Jayjay Helterbrand, Mark Caguioa, Scottie Thompson, Justin Brownlee and Sonny Jaworski.
Closing the event are Ginebra National Sales Manager Allan Mercado who shared some important details on how to get the new jersey collection, and Gary Granada who sang his iconic GSM theme song.
