Justine Brownlee: I want to be naturalized

Aside from playing for Brgy. Ginebra 'forever,' Justin Brownlee also wants to be a Filipino and be in the Philippines 'permanently.' Brownlee has been playing in the PBA for Ginebra since 2016. He has also represented the Philippines in the Asean Basketball League alongside Renaldo Balkman where they bagged the gold. This year, he scored his third Ginebra championship and the PBA Best Import award. With all of that success factored in, ABS-CBN Sports asked if he considers the Philippines as his basketball home. Brownlee did not take any of it. Instead, he topped it. "Not only basketball [home]. I want to consider it my home. Period." "You know, I wish I could live here all year round but unfortunately, [I can't] because of government rules and things like that but I wish I could be at home permanently," he said minutes before he spent quality time with fans Sunday afternoon in the Ginebra Victory Party held in Pasig. Team Governor Alfrancis Chua added on this. He joked during the program saying that Brownlee is no longer going to be an import next conference. "Hindi na si Brownlee ang import dahil gagawin na natin siyang Pilipino!," he joked which prompted the fans to chant GI-NEB-RA. But Chua then clarified with the media that if ever Brownlee's naturalization pushes through, it has nothing to do with his basketball career but more on his personal life. After all, naturalized Filipinos can not still play in the league as a local. "Sinabi ni Brownlee sa amin kaharap ang buong team, ‘Boss, I want to be naturalized.’" "Brownlee loves the Philippines. He told me many times na kung matapos siya ng paglalaro, he wants to stay in the Philippines and he wants to be naturalized. To make the long story short, he loves the Philippines and he wants to stay here for good." Chua then alluded to the likes of Norman Black who stayed in the Philippines for good after a stellar import career. Brownlee's feelings towards the country just goes to show how great it is to play for the Filipino hoops community. --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @cruzdanine.....»»
