Justin Brownlee just scored a grand slam for Barangay Ginebra this season.
After bagging the Governors’ Cup Best Import award, the 33-year-old Brownlee powered the Kings to a back-to-back championship in the season-ending meet as they finished off the Meralco Bolts Friday night in Game 6 of the finals, 103-92, before a record crowd of 20,244 at the Mall of Asia Arena.
To top it all, Brownlee is now part of the Top 5 all-time scoring list among imports following his 24-point, 16-rebound, six-assist stats line in the closed-out game.
The charismatic import surpassed fellow Ginebra legend Billy Ray Bates at no. 5 as he now totaled 4,539 points in his PBA stint that began in 2016.
Bates, the explosive former Portland Trailblazers stalwart who steered the Ginebra franchise to its first ever league championship in 1986, fell at sixth spot with 4,523.
The ever humble person that he is, Brownlee felt great being mentioned in the same breath as Bates and Norman Black, the Meralco Bolts coach who leads the all-time scoring list with 11,329.
“It’s always great to be mentioned with those guys and Norman Black. It’s great. Great feeling,” said Brownlee.
