Ginebra Import Justin Brownlee Has No Plans Of Joining NBA Soon

28-year-old Justin Bronwlee of the Ginebra Kings doesn’t see himself playing anywhere else but the Philippines for the meantime.


While other imports use the PBA as a stepping stone to get to the coveted NBA, the 6-foot-5 player, who made the championship shot, is set on returning to the Philippine league next season.

Justin says:

“To be honest, I never really think about the NBA . Of course, that may be every child’s dream and, of course, it was my dream as well to be able to play in the NBA. If I get the opportunity, it’ll be a blessing. It’s always been a dream of mine.”

Justin, who was undrafted in the 2011 NBA draft and has played in Italy, Mexico and France, says that playing in the Philippines has been the most fun he’s ever had with basketball.

“Honestly, I don’t want to play anywhere else besides the Philippines, especially with the fans, how they embrace me, how great of a team Ginebra is.”

It’s good to hear he’s found his place in the Philippines!
