The Fast and The Furious No More: Jayjay Helterbrand retires from the PBA

The Fast and The Furious run has finally ended.

In an exclusive with CNN Sport Desk, Jayjay Helterbrand announced his retirement from the PBA.

When asked why the latest Governor’s Cup Championship was one of the most special championships in his career, Helterbrand answered:

“This is one of the most special ones for me because it’ll probably be my last as a player.”

Helterbrand was asked to clarify his statement and he said that Game 7 of the 2017 Governor’s Cup Finals was his last game as a PBA player.

This ends Helterbrand’s 17-year career in the PBA where he entered as a direct hire in 2001. Helterbrand was awarded the MVP back in 2009 where he averaged 17.6 points, 5.0 assists and 3.8 rebounds in 46 games.

The 41-year old veteran has already informed Ginebra management of his decision. He’s looking to join the team in the future as part of their coaching staff.
