PBA Governor's Cup Best Import Player
Brownlee finished with 559 statistical points, garnered 493 votes from the media, 73 from players, and 150 from the PBA office for a total of 1,275 points. Brownlee, 33, topped the statistical race and all votes from media, players, and PBA Commissioner's Office in winning the award that has eluded him in three previous Governors Cup campaign. It took a sensational playoff run for Brownlee to claim his second Best Import award and first in the Governor's Cup.
In past three campaigns in the season-ending conference where the Kings emerged champions, Brownlee lost the Best Import award each time to Meralco counterpart Allen Durham. "Definitely feels great to win the award. But it's even sweeter with a championship," said Brownlee, whose other Best Import award came in the 2018 Commissioner's Cup.
Harris, the Best Import of the 2018 season-ending meet, finished second with 795 points on 512 statistical points, 217 media votes, 41 players votes, and 25 from the PBA office, although the Hotshots failed to make the finals after losing to Meralco in the do-or-die Game 5 during the semis.
In claiming another Best Import plum, Brownlee joined an elite group of only 10 players who won the award more than once. Brownlee is tied with current Meralco coach Norman Black, Billy Ray Bates, Derrick Brown, Gabe Freeman, Arizona Reid, Jerald Honeycutt, and Kenny Redfield with two each.
Bishop, playing in his first finals appearance, placed third with 739 points, while NLEX replacement import Cameron Clark brought up the rear with 443 points.
Commissioner Willie Marcial handed the Best Import trophy to Brownlee amid chants of Ginebra! Ginebra! Ginebra! at the Smart Araneta Coliseum just minutes before Game 4 of the finals between the Kings and Bolts.
It is a double win for Ginebra as Scottie Thompson captured his first Best Player of the Conference trophy.
