Paul Harris or Justin Brownlee? Ginebra has yet to choose between their Super Imports

After being injured during the first game of Ginebra against the Globalport Batang Pier, their foreign reinforcement Paul Harris was out for less than a month now trying to heal from his injury and while he do so, the Ginebra Management and Coaching staff decided to get a replacement for Harris.

Justin Brownlee arrived in Manila a few days before their second game in the conference and is getting better and better each game, and due to his excellent performance the fans are now asking if Ginebra will just stick to playing with Brownlee, or will they have Paul Harris back once he’s fully healed.

Tim Cone said in an interview after their win against blackwater that they’re not in that decision part yet.

“That’s not a decision that we want to make right now, we dont have to talk about it. Justin is playing well, Paul the month that we have him everything that we wanted in an import is effort, leadership, i mean he’s a great import, he’s one of the best imports. “

Considering the standard of Cone, Paul Harris is the perfect one for the job first hand but because of the injury incident, they had to get a new one while Harris is still recovering.

“Justin is proven to be very good also, we were blessed with two super imports, im sure one of the other teams would love to grab one of those guys, we’re not gonna give them up but for now its gonna be justin’s part its gonna continue to be that way until paul comes back and gets healthy and then that time we will be able to make decisions but you cant complain about success, we’ve been successful we’re really happy to have him.”

Ginebra camp is in a tough situation in trying to select between their two excellent imports, and they’ve decided to just continue with what they do and just think about this decision when everything are already on the table.

“It’s a difficult situation we like both imports really well. But both of them are really good guys, and whatever happens im sure they’ll be cool about it.”
