Around 1,500 people showed up at Metrotent Convention Center in Pasig City as the Gin Kings celebrated their title conquest with their loyal supporters amid the stormy weather.

The entire Ginebra team from the players, coaches and team officials were present and made the victory party a memorable one for the fans, who got to take selfies and have some of their stuff signed.

High-flying forward Japeth Aguilar, who played through a foot injury since the best-of-five semifinals series against Rain or Shine, couldn’t be more grateful for the love Ginebra has been continuing to receive.

Ginebra toppled San Miguel Beer in six games to win the 2018 PBA Commissioner’s Cup championship on Wednesday.
