I'll just keep this post short because I think, the PBA Commissioner Mr. Chito Salud's statement below is enough to prove that the Ginebra Gin Kings is still thecrowd favorite in the PBA.
According to our beloved Commissioner, Ginebra is still the crowd favorite followed by Petron which is the 2nd most liked team and then B-Meg and Talk 'n are fighting for the 3rd most liked team. His basis is the Gate Receipt last Conference.
Here is the Commissioner's statement:
"Crowd Favorite pa rin ang Ginebra, ikalawa ang Petron, naglalaban sa ikatlo ang Bmeg at Talk N' Text." Yan ay base sa Gate Receipt last Conference !"
Going on, I was surprised that B-Meg was not listed as the number crowd favorite team because if I'm not mistaken their fans were able to make a gate attendancerecord in one of their games last Conference. But then again, that was just in one game. That was still an inferior gate attendance record compared to Ginebra's. The Ginebra fans perhaps were more consistent in supporting their team. This just goes to show that Ginebra's charisma is really on a different and higher level.
