They've won six PBA titles and one Asian Games gold medal together.
Is Justin Brownlee some sort of GOAT or what?
Check out his list of accomplishments as a reinforcement for the Barangay Ginebra San Miguel and Gilas Pilipinas. We apologize for excluding some for the sake of brevity.
In the PBA:
- Three-time Best Import
- Six-time champion
- Ended Barangay Ginebra’s eight-year title drought in the 2016 Commissioner’s Cup finals via a walk-off three-pointer in Game 6.
In international competition:
- In just his second game for Gilas, dropped 41 points on Jordan during the sixth window of the FIBA World Cup Asian Qualifiers
- Led Gilas in reclaiming the Southeast Asian (SEA) Games gold medal against import-laden teams such as Indonesia and Cambodia
- Scored 33 points, 17 in the fourth period, including two dagger threes, to save Gilas in the Asian Games semifinals versus China
- Led Gilas to a historic gold medal in the Asian Games
Except in the SEA Games, Barangay Ginebra and Gilas veteran Japeth Aguilar has been Brownlee’s teammate in all of the latter’s mentioned conquests. Talk about seeing greatness up close, Aguilar has experienced it, sharing the court with JB in numerous big games and just as many clutch moments.
Through an Instagram Story he posted on Sunday, Japeth, who's set to retire from the national team, affirmed what many Filipinos think of Justin Noypi.
“@magicbrown32 be chillin,’” Aguilar wrote as a caption for a photo of a goat looking all relaxed, lying down on a grass field.
The eye test says so. Brownlee’s credentials say so. And Japeth says so as well.
Yep, Brownlee is indeed a GOAT in Philippine basketball.
