AKTV Pays Tribute to Robert ‘The Big J’ Jaworski this Sunday
July 6, 2012 by TV5
Robert Jaworski, one of the PBA’s legendary basketball players, will cap a stellar professional career in a grand celebration aptly named “Tribute to Jaworski, Jersey Retirement Ceremony” on July 8, Sunday.
The ceremony will be aired live on AKTV on IBC13 after the first game of the PBA Semi-Finals.
For years, Jaworski personified what it means to be the heart and soul of Barangay Ginebra.
As a playing coach, his leadership and motivational skills led the team to countless hard-court battles that die-hard fans always troop to watch. He showed his ‘never-say-die’ spirit and helped his teammates soar to new heights. This can be attested by those who have played alongside him—from best buddy Francis Arnaiz, Arnie Tuadles, and Ricky Relosa to modern-day Ginebra stars like Marlou Aquino, Vince Hizon, Noli Locsin and Bal David. That ‘Lahing Ginebra’ still lives on with the current Barangay Ginebra team led by Mark Caguioa.
Robert Jaworski remains one of the PBA’s most decorated players. He made the list as one of PBA’s 25 Greatest Players of All Time in 2000 and has been enshrined as part of the league’s Hall of Fame in 2005.
All these achievements will be recognized in this long-awaited ceremony honoring the Living Legend, Robert Jaworski, Sr.
