Jayjay Helterbrand signs with Imus, completes Gerald Anderson tandem
The former Ginebra star comes out of retirement to banner the Imus squad in the MPBL



MANILA, Philippines – Former Ginebra superstar Jayjay Helterbrand has officially come out of retirement to sign with the Imus Bandera-Khaleb Shawarma for the upcoming MPBL Lakandula Cup. 

The six-time PBA champion and 2009 PBA MVP completes an instant fan favorite tandem with scrappy celebrity baller Gerald Anderson as Imus tries to best its middling 11-14 record in last season’s Datu Cup.




However, Helterbrand and Anderson will not fly the Bandera colors by themselves as they will also be joined by James Martinez, Mikee Reyes, Jojo Cunanan and JR Ng Sang, per reports by Fox Sports Philippines. 

Although the 42-year-old Fil-Am guard has not played professional basketball since 2017, he has since taken small steps in getting back into game shape by joining Ginebra in the ongoing UNTV Cup Legends Face-off. 

Coming off an 11-month season with 26 participating teams, the MPBL has further expanded to a grand total of 31 squads as the Lakandula Cup kicks off on Wednesday, June 12, at the Mall of Asia Arena. – Rappler.com
