Justin Brownlee takes home first Best Import plum
MANILA, Philippines – After 4 tours of duty, Barangay Ginebra's Justin Brownlee finally secured a PBA Best Import of the Conference award.
The ultra-talented reinforcement from St. John's University registered 1209 points amassed from media, player and league votes and the statistical race to beat top contender Renaldo Balkman (858 points) of the San Miguel Beermen.
Losing the award to Meralco Bolts' Allen Durham in the last two editions of the Governors' Cup, the 30-year-old nabbed the individual honor after helping the Gin Kings reach the finals despite a dismal 1-5 start. – Rappler.com
