I personally can’t think of the most fulfilling decision I have made as a ballers’ buff rather than joining JAMSHIPS. I know that everyone of us also feels the same. All I want is to see my jam-packed family because it will be an explosion of stories, gags and pleasure for sure. Again, only at JAMSHIPS’.
Every beat of our heart shouts every interest that we have and our interest to GINEBRA seems roaring the loudest— the thrill and satisfaction are HEARTFELT. If someone couldn’t feel it, its just two things, either you are not a Ginebra fan or you don’t have a heart at all, or worse, neither of those. KUDOS JAMSHIPS! Long way to go… more stories to unfold, more titles to celebrate and more memories to cherish. We are all champions in and OUT of the playing court.




It's not a fans club, it's a friendship thing;
and our common denominator
is our love for the GinKings.

What is Jamships?

BGK Jamships. Ano nga ba at para san ang grupong to? Bakit me Jamships? Anong eksena nito?
Jamships. Nagsimula to sa isang pagkakaibigang nabuo sa World Wide Web. Tama. Internet. Imposible mang isipin, pero totoong pagkakaibigan ang namagitan sa 8 babaeng nagkakila-kilala sa POL, ranging from early teenagers, to mid-twenties. Naging magkakaibigan kami dahil sa iisang pagkakapareho -- ang pagkahilig sa basketbol at pagiging tagahanga ng itinuturing na pinakapopular na PBA team, ang Barangay Ginebra Kings. Masayang pagkakaibigan na hindi ininda ang pagiging magkakaiba ng ugali, ng pananaw sa buhay, hindi ininda ang layo ng distansya o ng katotohanang hindi pa kami nagkikita-kita. Napaka-ideal. Pero aaminin kong hindi kami perpekto. Sino bang hindi nagkakamali? Pero tanggap namin ang mga flaws ng bawat isa. Naging matatag ang pagkakaibigan sa maikling panahon. Di lumaon, nagkaron kami ng maraming kaibigan at nagsimulang tumanggap ng miyembro -- naisip naming buksan ang pamilyang ito sa kagustuhang magkaroon ng mas maraming kaibigan at kachikahan tungkol sa paborito naming koponan. Mula kay AM, kay Gracey, hanggang sa ngayon ay halos hirap na rin akong mag GM o group message. Anu bang trip namin? Ang Jamships, gaya ng lagi kong sinasabi, we're not just an ordinary BGK fans club or fan listing. This is friendship that started from being a Ginebra fan. Hindi man kami magkakapareho sa maraming bagay, may iilang tatatak sa isip mo sa oras na makilala mo kami. Jamships is all about friendship and undying, unconditional love for the Barangay Ginebra Kings.

JAMSHIPS is family.

para sakin ang jamships ay isang pamilya na nabuo dahil sa pinakamamahal naming team at yun ang ginebra. ang pamilya ito ay may faith kay god manalo, matalo ang ginebra nagsasama sama nag mga meyembro ng pamilya ng jamships walang iwanan sa kalokohan,kasiyahan,kalungkuta at kaadikan lab lab jamships

ang jamships for me? its a ship full of jamming passengers that no one could ever make it sink. its a group rooted in bgk, but blossom as a family who`l be there for our team and for each other till eternity

*(n) bi-ji-key-dzam-ship
-pamili na nag welcome sakin ng bongga-bongga. pamili na dumadamay sa bawat isa.pamili na masaya,makulit,malupit..pamili na buwis-buhay para sa ginebra

Barangay Ginebra "Gin Kings" vs. San Miguel "Beermen"

MANILA, PHILIPPINES - The teams begin league play with a revenge match, after facing each other in the Fiesta Conference Finals just three months ago. In that series, the Gin Kings led 3-2 going into the sixth game, but dropped the next two games to give the Beermen the Fiesta Conference Championship.

These two teams also met in the Philippine Cup Playoffs last year, with the Beermen winning the Quarterfinal series 2-1.

The Ginebra team returns largely intact, with ten of last year's roster members remaining. They drafted Kevin White (5-11, 185 lbs) 19th overall in the second round of the recent PBA draft, and they acquired three other players via the trade board.

San Miguel has no rookies, but added three new players, including All-Star Arwind Santos, while retaining eleven from last year's squad. San Miguel and defending Philippine Cup Champion Talk 'N Text share the distinction of not having any rookies this year.

The first half was well-contended by both teams, as the teams and the fans came out screaming.

The Beermen took the first quarter 29-21 behind 8 points from Danny Ildefonso and 7 points from Mick Pennisi.

In the second quarter, Ginebra struck back, eventually tying the game at 32-apiece, with 6:09 remaining in the half.

The crowd began chanting "Gin-e-bra!" and the team responded, outscoring the Beermen 28-14 in the second quarter, and went into halftime with a 49-43 lead.

Leading the comeback for the Gin Kings was JayJay Helterbrand with 7 points and 3 boards, but this was clearly a team effort, as seven players scored in the quarter.

With the crowd squarely behind them, Ginebra kept the Beermen at bay throughout the second half, with the brewery boys never posing a serious threat.

Ginebra was led by Eric Menk with 19 points and 9 rebounds, Mark Caguioa, and Jayjay Helterbrand with 17 points apiece and 2 and 7 rebounds, respectively. Ronald Tubid (12 pts, 9 rebs) and Willy Wilson (10 pts, 4 rebs) also scored in double figures.

For the Beermen, Danny Idelfonso posted 19 points and 2 rebounds, while Mike Cortez was his only teammate in double figures with 10 points and 2 rebounds. Arwind Santos and Donan Pena were board wizards, with 12 and 15 rebounds.

Both teams played well and with intensity, but the Gin Kings put the pieces in place better for this tie-up.

Cyrus Baguio, who was the star for the PowerAde-Filipinas National Team at the FIBA-Asia tournament didn't score much, with only four points, but had two rebounds, an assist, a steal, and a block, in 13 minutes of play.

The Beermen face the Alaska Aces this Saturday, in Davao. Next up for the Gin Kings are the Purefoods "Tender Juicy Giants" on Sunday at Araneta Coliseum in Manila.
