This feature is part of 7 Days of Jaworski, InterAKTV’s special tribute to the Living Legend, whose jersey will be retired on Sunday, July 8.
Last March, InterAKTV counted down the Top 10 Players in Ginebra History. The end of the list was anti-climactic, because everyone knew that No. 7 should be No. 1.
Here’s what we wrote then:
When one says Ginebra, Jaworski is the Alpha and the Omega.
On the court, he was perpetually unafraid to barrel against bigger men in the lane, on many occasions seemingly willing his team to victory with his huge fighting heart. Off the court, his demeanor toward his fans might be even more remarkable. He was known to always give the time of day to any of his supporters, signing autographs till his hand hurt, smiling and posing for hundreds of pictures, and even joking around with them. It is no accident that Jaworski is the most popular player in PBA history.
By the way, Jaworski has never formally retired from playing basketball. As they say, true legends never say die.
