PBA legend Robert Jaworski in talks with Ang for return to Ginebra, says source



Asked about a possible return by Robert Jaworski to Ginebra, his longtime PR man and business manager Reli De Leon says: “Bobby just wants to bring back something for the fans. It’s not for the money. He doesn’t want the never-say-die spirit to die this way. He wants to revive the animo of Ginebra.” Jerome Ascano

PBA icon Robert Jaworski is in talks with San Miguel Corp. top honcho Ramon S. Ang on the possibility of returning to the Ginebra coaching job, a source told Spin.ph on Wednesday.

According to the team insider, Jaworski and Ang have been in constant touch for a while now and last met in March just before the longtime Ginebra playing-coach left for the US to watch the fight between Manny Pacquiao and Timonthy Bradley in Las Vegas.

Incidentally, the last meeting occurred at the height of the Commissioner's Cup struggle of a Ginebra team that has one of the most formidable lineups on paper but continues to fall short - its PBA championship drought now going six years and counting.

On Tuesday, the Gin Kings were ousted from the title chase at the first stage of the playoffs after a lopsided 84-97 loss to top seed Talk 'N Text, heightening the call for changes in the league's most popular ballclub.

“How will I answer it (your question about Jaworski)? Confidential pa kasi 'yung lahat. But there is an ongoing negotiation,” said the source. “Wala pang definite, but there are negotiations.”

The same source bared that the line of communication between Jaworski and Ang has always been open.

“Hindi mo naman pwedeng sabihin na walang pag-uusap yung dalawa, kasi ang dalas ngang mag guest ni Jawo sa mga events ng Ginebra. Nanood nga siya sa semis game ng team last conference, di ba?” he stressed.

“Sa ngayon talaga, wala pang concrete. Pero may exploratory negotiations na.”

In the last interview he granted to Spin.ph last March 7, Jaworski, 68, neither confirmed nor denied reports that he is in talks for a return to a team he helped turn into the most popular in the pro league with its 'never-say-die' spirit and aggressive, rugged style of play.

But the former senator made it clear he is open to a return to basketball, on the condition that he be given "full control" of the team.

Even longtime Ginebra star Mark Caguioa harked back to the team's glory years under Jaworski when he blasted his teammates for being 'soft and lazy' in a Twitter rant, hours after the loss to Talk 'N Text.

Rino Salazar, Jaworski's longtime deputy, has also joined the calls for the one-time PBA MVP's return to the team, telling Spin.ph that it's high time the PBA icon takes over the ballclub again.

On Wednesday, Spin.ph contacted Jaworski’s longtime sports affairs PR man and business manager Reli de Leon, but the outspoken sportsman refused to comment on the matter.

De Leon, however, said Jaworski felt bad that the team continues to lose.

“He feels sorry that his team is losing. Mas masaya daw ang Pilipinas pag kasama sa championship ang Ginebra, being the most popular PBA team, mas madaming maligaya, mas masaya ang PBA fans,” De Leon said.

Asked how Jaworski missed coaching the team he represented from 1983 to 1998, De Leon, who was with the Big J during the Las Vegas trip for the Pacquiao fight, gave a fascinating response.

“Bobby just wants to bring back something for the fans. It’s not for the money. He doesn’t want the never-say-die spirit to die this way. He wants to revive the animo of Ginebra,” he said.

jawo have always been the core and heart of Ginebra team and the fans. that time playing with beerman on those days displayed his true nsd attitude, injured pero tinapos ang laro, winning inspite na tambak cla ng kalaban, basagan ng mukha, balyahan sa ilalim, couple of hard fouls, eto ang laro nya na nakaantig sa mga fans noon. at ang mga fans na yan ay lumago at umigting ang damdamin kaya dumami. always underdog pero di nagpapatalo, yan ang nsd attitude na pinapakita nila dati na wala na ngaun. kakalungkot talaga isipin. smc would never have utang na loob, kung meron man bat andaming coaches nila na nag champ pinalitan din kalaunan. it's all just business for the management. trabaho lng walang personalan. sabi ko nga sa isang topic dito sa forum, may kanya-kanyang pag-iisip ang management, at ang dami nila, kahit magaling ka pa, kung llamado sila sa deal, eh magbalot-balot ka na.
