Aces’ Compton, Manuel marvel at ‘special player’ Brownlee

It's undeniable that Justin Brownee has that unbridled charisma that endeared him not just to the Barangay Ginebra supporters but also to the general population that watches the PBA. On top of that immense likability is a basketball ability that sometimes leaves watchers in awe and Brownlee once again displayed that artistry on Friday when Ginebra held off Alaska, 109-101, in the PBA Governors' Cup. Brownlee lit up the boards with 45 points, 11 rebounds, and nine assists that even his opponents had nothing to say but praise for the import who wants to become a naturalized Filipino citizen. "He really is the Best Import, I can't help but salute him," said Alaska forward Vic Manue...Keep on reading: Aces’ Compton, Manuel marvel at ‘special player’ Brownlee.....»»

RSA says SMC will sponsor Brownlee s bid for naturalization

Justin Brownlee's naturalization might just be a matter of time. On Monday, San Miguel big boss Ramon S. Ang says that SMC will sponsor Brownlee's desire to become a naturalized Filipino citizen. Brownlee, the PBA's reigning Best Import and three-time champion for Ginebra, expressed his wish to apply for naturalization. [Related: Justine Brownlee: I want to be naturalized] Justin plans to make the Philippines his permanent home and he wants to go all in here. And San Miguel Corp. will be looking to make that happen. "I think we will all be very happy if he's going to be a Filipino, di ba?" RSA said Monday during Ginebra's title celebration at the San Miguel headquarters in Ortigas. "We will apply and we will sponsor him to be a Filipino citizen. So he can play for the next 100 years," he added. Winner of three titles in only four conferences, Brownlee has certainly cemented himself as one of the best Ginebra imports ever. RSA certainly thinks so too. "I've seen so many impots come to this country, but I have never seen a guy like Justin Brownlee," Ang said of Ginebra's prolific reinforcement.     --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»

Carpio, who champions the country's sovereignty over the West Philippine Sea --- waters within the Philippines' 370-kilometer exclusive economic zone (EEZ) in the South China Sea --- said the latest poll also signaled the need for the Duterte administration to rethink its stand on the dispute. "The Filipino people understand the situation that . . . we have to protect our sovereign rights and we ...Keep on reading: President’s stand on sea row needs review – Carpio.....»»
