Jaworski in talks to coach Ginebra?

April 24, 2014

MANILA, Philippines – Basketball legend Robert Jaworki is reportedly in talks to get back his coaching job in Barangay Ginebra San Miguel.

Rumors of his possible return were resurrected after the Gin Kings were unceremoniously booted out of the race for the PBA Commissioner’s Cup on Tuesday.

A source cited by Spin.ph’s Snow Badua revealed that Jaworski, who was known for his “Never Say Die” spirit during his Ginebra days, has been keeping an open communication with San Miguel Corp. president Ramon Ang.

“Confidential pa kasi 'yung lahat. But there is an ongoing negotiation,” said the source. “Wala pang definite, but there are negotiations.”...

Caguioa blasts ‘no heart, soft’ Ginebra on Twitter

April 24, 2014

MANILA, Philippines — Barangay Ginebra San Miguel veteran Mark Caguioa hardly speaks to the media anymore. But it turns out, he didn’t need to as he let his frustrations out anew on social networking site Twitter.

“Dati rati kinakatakutan itong team nato at iniilagan pero ngayon lahat ng team gusto kami kalaban kasi nga mga tamad and sobrang lalambot,” Caguioa posted on his Twitter account Wednesday.

“Parang ito na yung mga player ngayon na parang hindi nila alam and history ng GINEBRA. I don’t think they know kasi parang walang mga pake. Kilala ba nila si Coach Sonny? Noli Locsin? Pido? Bal david? Rudy Distrito? Itong mga player nato makikipag palitan talaga ng mukha,” the former MVP Caguioa said, referring to PBA legends who have donned the iconic Ginebra jersey....

April 23, 2014

Brgy. Ginebra import Gabe Freeman. Sports5/Pranz Kaeno BillonesGabe Freeman’s stint for Barangay Ginebra San Miguel in the PLDT Home TVolution Commissioner’s Cup came to a crashing halt on Tuesday after the Gin Kings were knocked out by top seed Talk ‘N Text.

Talk 'N Text easily dispatches Ginebra, waltzes into semis

April 23, 2014

TNT import Richard Howell attacks the defense of Ginebra's Greg Slaughter. Jeff VenancioAfter finishing the 2014 PBA Philippine Cup at the top of the elimination round, the Barangay Ginebra Kings are the third team to exit in the Commissioner’s Cup after dropping a lopsided 97-84 game to the undefeated Talk ‘N Text Tropang Texters, the final 13-point difference far from being a gauge of just how dominant the Tropang Texters were.

The Kings thought the energy that replacement import Gabe Freeman brought was enough to slap them out of their slump. It was enough for the first half against Rain or Shine in their last elimination round game, but not nearly enough against the Tropang Texters, who have been playing flawless basketball as of late.

After letting the Kings hang around in the first half, Talk 'N Text unleashed a crippling scoring run in the third quarter to leave the Kings behind for good....
