Jaworski shows up to support Ginebra in PBA semis Game 7
Hoping to give Ginebra a much needed emotional boost, PBA legend Robert “Sonny” Jaworski made his way to the Mall of Asia Arena and watched his former team play fierce rival Star in Game 7 of the 2017 PBA Philippine Cup semifinals series Tuesday.
“Tahanan ko na itong Ginebra (Ginebra is already my home),” the former senator said in a short interview.

Jaworski arrived early in the third quarter with Ginebra still holding a double-digit lead with seven minutes remaining. The Kings had a 65-61 lead heading into the final period.
He even made a joke about checking in to the game, saying, “Naka-shorts nga ako eh. Maglalaro ako (I’m wearing shorts. I will play).”
Jaworski was hounded by fans for photos and was showered by “Ginebra!” and “Jaworski!” chants as he made his way to his seat behind the Gin Kings bench.
