Big J’s No. 7

ON OCCASIONS when I bump into the country’s most popular cager, the Living Legend Sonny Jaworski, he always jokes about making a comeback in the PBA. Not as a coach but as a player.

Or maybe both, since he was a playing coach when he left the PBA scene close to the turn of the century. Even if he is now well into his senior years.

“I’m not yet officially retired so I can still play if there’s a team that will hire me,” the Big J would say, a big smile plastered on his face.

It took almost 15 years but at last the famous No. 7 jersey the Big J used to wear in his decades of active playing will be officially retired at the Smart Araneta Coliseum on May 27 Sunday before the Ginebra-B-Meg game.

AKTV’s Paul Mata said there will be a short tribute for the Living Legend, who, according to PBA chief statistician Fidel Mangonon III, last played in Game 6 of the All-Filipino Cup against Purefoods on May 25, 1997.

On May 30, 2003, Jaworski played in a Toyota-Crispa exhibition match where he sank a three-point shot from an assist by Mon Fernandez to win the game.
