How Ginebra Lost But Did Not Say Die

How Ginebra Lost But Did Not Say Die



3. Try and try. But Never Say Die.

Sure, Ginebra lost. Sure, they’re now placed firmly at the bottom of the standings. Sure, they can no longer blame the import. Sure, it doesn’t look like there’ll be solutions to their problems anytime soon. Sure, a lot of things are still wrong with the Barangay.

But, you’ve got to give it to them. They didn’t quit.

Rain or Shine had all the momentum in the world. Paul Lee knocked down what was supposed to be the dagger. Ginebra said no. Belga hit big free throws. Ginebra said no. Lee to the line for two? Same Ginebra answer: no.

It wasn’t that they were making these late-game desperation threes, it’s that they were shooting them not for the sake of shooting alone, but because they still had every intention of winning that game, no matter what the odds. And though their stubbornness eventually had to give way to the 1-5 reality they now face, the mere existence of such audacity should be comforting (even if mildly) to every one of their millions of fans.

Why? It’s because Ginebra isn’t loved because they win championships all the time. They’re not loved because they win games all the time. If that were the case, then they’d be bragging about the number of trophies Jawo has brought them, much like how the Celtics say “17″ every chance they get.

Ginebra sits in a place all their own in the Filipino culture because like many hardworking citizens of this fair country, they don’t give up. Ever. They’re stubborn. They’re relentless. Sometimes they win and get their way, sometimes they lose to a deeper team that has been together for a much longer time.

But regardless of result, or odds, or logic, Ginebra teams should Never Say Die.

And this one didn’t.

gumaganda na yung tandem ni mc at la kahit nung talo na sa dulo, mintis na yung huling attempt, makikita mo yung tapikan ng dalawa. good sign na rin at least hindi nag claclash yung ego nila. yung mga admin sa facebook sana ilagay nila to kung hindi pa nalalagay kasi maraming nagkalat na nega stars na kabarangay..

parang pagod kasi si hill kahit 1st quarter pa lang lol.. sana natuto na lang sila dun lalo na si chua dapat kung ayaw nya nung import na kinuha ng previous coach nagsalita na sya maaga pa, hindi na nya pinaabot ng actual game lol. anyway, 1-5 ang standings pero paangat naman ang laro kaya keri na rin..

just like in the HOBBIT Movie, The king will die but will not Perished.. His Legion will lives on and on.. The NSD Spirit Runs in the blood.. You may not see it everyday but It will come out as soon as you needed it..
