PBA Action in 2006: Helterbrand vs. Reavis

The photo below originally appeared in the sports section of the May 18, 2006 issue of The Philippine Star. Photographed by Jun Mendoza, the caption was "Jayjay Helterbrand of Ginebra soars for a shot against Rafi Reavis of Coca-Cola in last night's game at the Araneta Coliseum."

Ginebra and Coca-Cola refer to the Philippine Basketball Association teams Barangay Ginebra Kings and Coca-Cola Tigers. Ginebra San Miguel Kings is currently known as Barangay Ginebra San Miguel. On the other hand, the Coca-Cola Tigers disbanded in 2012. Its franchise was acquired by the Sultan 900 Inc., the company that owns the current PBA team GlobalPort Batang Pier.

How about the players involved? Helterbrand continues to play for his team, while Reavis is now part of the San Miguel Coffee Mixers. Interestingly, Barangay Ginebra San Miguel and San Mig Coffee Mixers are facing each other in the best-of-seven semifinal series of the 2013-14 PBA Philippine Cup.
