'The Living Legend' and 'El Presidente cross paths anew as SMB-Ginebra game

In a great coincidence, two of the most iconic players the PBA has ever seen were courtside for Game 4 of the 2018 PBA Philippine Cup semifinals featuring San Miguel and Brgy. Ginebra. Attending his first live game of these playoffs, the Living Legend Robert Jaworski obviously rooted for his Gin Kings. On the other side of the court, Ramon "El Presidente" Fernandez was also watching. Fernandez of course, was the mentor of San Miguel star June Mar Fajardo in his earlier days in Cebu. Fernandez also finished his PBA career with the Beermen, winning a Grand Slam in 1989. The two legends had a bit of a falling out after their days with Toyota ended but has since made up. Thursday marked one of the rare times the two were seen in public. They shared a handshake, and embrace, and a quick chat in the first half. "We just said hi to each other, kamusta. It's been a long time since we've seen each other," Fernandez said. "I'm happy to see him. It's fine and wonderful. It's good that he was able to watch. A friend invited me today and I'm happy," Jaworski added. Following the mini reunion, the two legends also had the chance to talk about Game 4, which ended with a 102-81 score in favor of the Beermen for a 3-1 series lead. El Presidente was not impressed. "It was a boring game," he said with a laugh. "San Miguel wasn't really playing well, it's just that Ginebra just played really bad. They could play better than that. I like what I saw because San Miguel won, but I didn’t really enjoy the game that much. I would have enjoyed if it was a close game, two point, three point game or a one point game." Fernandez added. Jawo meanwhile, says Ginebra can't just simply count on NSD as a battle cry. "Hindi sinasabi yun eh, ginagawa," he said. "I want to say that they are tired but they got to do more than what they did tonight [to get back on the series]," Jaworski added.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»

Ganuelas-Rosser does best Ross impression in Game 4 win

With Chris Ross bothered by an injury, San Miguel inserted Matt Ganuelas-Rosser into the starting lineup for Game 4 against Brgy. Ginebra Thursday. And Ganuelas-Rosser did his best Ross impression, finishing with 12 points on 83 percent shooting on top of six rebounds and nine assists. "Coming in, we knew Chris wasn't 100 percent so you know, the good thing about this team is it's next man up. My whole team gave me confidence to step up so I just stepped up my game," Ganuelas-Rosser said. "Thankfully it was good enough for us to get a win," he added. More than his efficient day from the field, it was MGR's playmaking that gave the Beermen some much-needed lift as Ross played limited minutes. "We were making shots. And that's always been part of my game, to move the ball. Today for sure, with Ross not out there, I wanted to step up in that department and just keep the ball moving," he said. Now up 3-1 in the best-of-7, Ganuelas-Rosser says it's time for the Beermen to finish things off and not let the Beermen spark a Never Say Die comeback. "Our mentality is to just come out and play hard and not to let them get a chance," he said.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»
