Barangay Ginebra Kings

Barangay Ginebra Kings

The Barangay Ginebra San Miguel is a professional basketball team of the Philippine Basketball Association founded in 1979 and owned by the Ginebra San Miguel, Inc., a subsidiary of the San Miguel Corporation.

After some rough times during their first few seasons, their fortunes changed when Robert Jaworski and Francis Arnaiz arrived in 1984, following the disbandment of the famed Toyota Super Corollas.

Jaworski, as a player-coach, then steered the franchise to four PBA titles (1986 Reinforced, 1988 All-Filipino, 1991 First Conference and 1997 Commissioner's) with the tough and physical nucleus of Chito Loyzaga, Dondon Ampalayo, Dante Gonzalgo, Leo Isaac and Rudy Distrito, and for some times imports like Michael Hackett and Billy Ray Bates.

Jong Uichico and current head coach Siot Tangquincen then led the Kings to four more titles as head coaches of the squad led by Mark Caguioa, Jayjay Helterbrand and Eric Menk among others.
