Jayjay Helterbrand is one of the best point guards to ever play in the PBA.  He, together with backcourt mate, Mark Caguioa formed one of the most feared backcourts in PBA history.  Known as The Fast and the Furious, they reigned Barangay Ginebra's backcourt for the last 15 years.  Over the course of his career, Jayjay was a 7x PBA All-Star, 2x Best Player of the Conference, PBA Final's MVP, & 2009 PBA MVP.  Jayjay also represented Team Pilipinas in international competition in 2005, 2007 & 2009.  Still showing he is a great player, Jayjay recently scored 11 points in the 4th quarter of Game 4 of the Governor's Cup Finals, on his 40th birthday to lead Barangay Ginebra to victory, which eventually led to their first championship in 8 years.  He currently is playing for Barangay Ginebra, who is competing in the Philippine Cup in the PBA.

In this conversation with host and longtime teammate, Eric Menk, Jayjay reflects on his long career in the PBA for Barangay Ginebra.  Helterbrand discusses his early life before coming to the Philippines, his rise to eventually becoming the PBA MVP, and dealing with the struggles of an aging professional athlete.  In this 1 hour and 8 minute episode, Jayjay reveals several seldom heard stories and anecdotes about his career.  This is a real inside look at the man who has won over the hearts of the Barangay Ginebra faithful.  You can follow Jayjay on Instagram: @jayhelterbrand

    Great ep! You can hear the sincerity and maturity of a star player who is humble enough and genuinely thankful for what he has. I wish him well as he reaches the tailend of his great career. Thank you for guesting him, Eric! I wish you could guest both him and mark together, that should be fun! but maybe as a vlog! 🌟
