Stone Cold Jawo

Stone Cold Jawo








The guy is the ultimate
rulebreaker.





He gives his foes a wild elbow
swing or a wicked nudge in the groin and as if actions are not enough, his
words would wound the weakest of hearts.





And yet people love him.




Go figure.




In a time when goody-two-shoes Hulk Hogan ruled and made famous
professional wrestling, it was the dastardly Robert Jaworski who is regarded as the PBA’s poster boy. But how the hell did that happen? There’s Ramon Fernandez who is still regarded
today as the best PBA player in history. He had four MVP’s and a grand slam
while Jaworski And then there are the rest of the pioneers – Bogs Adornado, Atoy Co, Freddie Hubalde,
Philip Cezar, Manny Paner, Francis Arnaiz, Bernie Fabiosa, and Abet Guidaben

who in their own right made the PBA what it is today.





But Jawo is a different animal.




Up to this day, the never say
die spirit of the Barangay Ginebra Kings
still exists in the PBA. Ginebra’s allure is Jawo’s best contribution in the
PBA. It has been ages since he played but the Ginebra fans never left the team.





Even if his number will
officially hang on whatever symbolical place the San Miguel Corporation will make do for a rafter starting July 8,
2012 – that #7 jersey has been left untouched. In some ways that number is as
symbolic as Stone Cold Steve Austin’s
Austin 3:16
verse.





And definitely, his number is
our answer to Michael Jordan’s number 23.





Love him or hate him, the guy
is the most charismatic person in the PBA of all-time and rightfully so, it is
right for people to praise him for all his contributions to Philippine
basketball in this manner. Unlike some people who will resort to violence
because they are getting upstaged, Robert Jaworski uses his elbows and knees as
his signature moves. His finishers are his wide array of goods that includes a
three point shot (he is the first PBA player to do so), a drive and draw
assist, a fake pass that leads to a layup, a steal that leads to a fast break,
and a whole lot more. He was also one of the most effective playing coaches in
all of basketball history. With the exception of Bill Russell, Jawo effectively used his coaching as well as his
playing style to develop the Ginebra bad boys of the 80’s as well as the
Ginebra poster boys of the 90’s.





Also in terms of coaching,
Jaworski I thought was the only person to effectively use Dante Gonzalgo, Leo Isaac, Sonny Cabatu, Pido Jarencio, and Dondon
Ampalayo
as well as Marlou Aquino,
Noli Locsin, Jayvee Gayoso, Vince Hizon, Wilmer Ong, and Bal David
. None of
these players found greater success outside Jaworski’s Ginebra reign.





Just like Austin, Jaworski is
one of those guys that could barely do wrong even if what he’s doing is
otherwise. Perhaps the only way Jaworski had his fans turn against him was when
he did that cutthroat gesture on the Allan
Caidic
injury. In some ways, Caidic’s inclusion to the Ginebra roster as
well as the coaching staff was enough for Jawo to quit the business.





Publicity or not, the feat we
are about to witness is long overdue. The ultimate rulebreaker and game changer
will have his number retired in front of the fans that followed his career ever
since his UE, Olympic, and MICAA
days. It would have been better if the date landed on 7-7-07 but like I said,
it’s about time for the Big J to get
his just desserts.



Game over.
