From the link you provided a commenter said he was Ramon Lucindo but I don't know him... lets wait for Sir Nards, JPM and other old-timers to enlighten us about him... I'm sure they know him and his career..

Hopefully, other people will add photos of the Living Legend here...

Not sure if it's Geny Lucindo, but it's possible. Lucindo was the starting center of Mariwasa-Honda Panthers back in 1977 although there are two memorable things about his playing career: having been part of the opening toss in the inaugural game of the PBA and having played for the Meralco Reddykilowatts in the MICAA.

I thought initially he looked like Epoy Alcantara but that can't be because Alcantara donned jersey #4 for Mariwasa-Honda. Another possibility would be Hubert Filipinas but the pic looked like he was taller than Jaworski. Filipinas was only 5'11. Lucindo may seem to be the most logical answer.

I used to be an avid Crispa fan (later moved on to SMB when the former disbanded), and I sure hated Jaworski back then. On hindsight though, there's no denying that he definitely made the game a lot more interesting, and probably the PBA wouldn't have lasted as long as it did without his presence back then. :cool:

We have to remember that the league was at the brink of collapse back in 1986 when the team roster went down to an all-time low of 6. For almost 5 seasons, the league had to contend with 6 participating teams - Ginebra, Magnolia, Great Taste, Tanduay, Shell and Alaska. This only increased in 1990 when Diet Sarsi and Pepsi Cola joined the league.

But it was also this same period when the PBA experienced its glory years at the box office. There may have only been six teams but the league was extremely balanced for this period. Matter of fact, all teams won a PBA title with the exception of Alaska for the period of 1986-1990 - underscoring the parity that the league experienced back then.

Similarly, this was also the period when Ginebra became the most popular team in the land and Robert Jaworski the most recognizable sports personality ever. While the Big J was already a superstar dating back in the early 70's, he took his stature to demi-god proportions when he piloted and led Ginebra to 2 titles within this period.

Yes it was from 1985-1989 when the league had only 6 teams, with the National teams participating in one conference as the Guest squad. it was really crisis that time when Manila Beer and Tanduay would eventually fold up, and before that, Toyota and Crispa and then Magnolia's two-conference leave in 1986.

If my memory is not mistaken, Jaworski 's father was a Polish-American soldier who spread his seed in 1945 or 1946 during the liberation of the Philippines from the cruel Japanese invaders.

you got a nice family, BSGermany. thanks for sharing with us your family photo. :)

Does Big J's official FB page own by the Living Legend himself?

If my memory serves me correctly..it was Jaworski who was the player who in the middle of the game got his head lacerated and was sent to the hospital for stiches and who returned to the game and led his team Ginebra to victory against the then undefeated guest NCC team. He's one firebrand of a baskeball player..the type who never gives up.

Happened in 1984 against NCC - when Jeff Moore's wayward elbow hit Jaworski right smack on the kisser (as the late Joe Cantada described the lips). He was brought to the nearby Medical City and had himself stitched with bandage. He returned with 7 minutes left in the game with NCC up by more than a dozen points. Jaworski's return allowed Ginebra to pull off a near miraculous victory against the Cement Makers via a hairline of a margin.

Here's the picture of Jaworski with his Ginebra team after that classic 1985 game vs NCC where the Big J got injured with a wayward Jeff Moore elbow, was rushed to the hospital and after getting stitched-up, he gone back to the game and inspired his team to a come-from-behind victory.

Some say this particular game was what started Ginebra on being called a never say die team.

Upon reading JPM's article and the final count, Ginebra 101-97 win over NCC, I knew this is the game i've been thinking all over, although could no longer recall Northern up by 15 in the final period, my memory on this was NCC controlled the game all throughout, the crowd was silenced until the last 4-5 minutes left, key NCC players Samboy Lim and Allan Caidic fouled out in succession during the crucial minutes, and Dennis Still, I think I stated this in other forums, was thrown out midway in the 4th period, it really looks like its almost impossible for Ginebra to comeback, Jaworski's quarterbacking help the Gins rally, I was more bitter back then rooting for Ron Jacobs' boys (like saying na tsambahan na naman ng Ginebra ang Northern) but any fan, whether you cheered for other team, would really admired and fell in love with Ginebra that night, the endgame and the final buzzer was heavily-breathing, a sigh like "oh my" "its a miracle" for the commentators who covered that game and for the fans who were there at the ULTRA.

While my version of the story cannot be accurate as well as I relied too on my memories, maybe Sir Gary Hole could help us to tell more on what transpired in the final period that led to Ginebra's comeback win as he has a betamax tape of that memorable game:)
