After the sorry loss and eventual elimination of the Ginebra Gin Kings last night against the Rain or Shine Elasto Painters in their best of 3 quarterfinals series, JJ Helterbrand was seen to have immediately left the venue with still a few ticks remaining on the game clock. He looked very sad and dejected when he moved away from the bench of Ginebra heading to the exit.
His action last night could be a strong indication that he has lost all his interest in prolonging his stay with the Gin Kings. But apparently, he is not yet sure if he will already leave the camp of the Kings for a possible retirement. That's according to his Facebook message addressed to his fans and to the Die Hard supporters of Ginebra.
Here's what he said:
