The Jaworski Connection

20 August 2010

So, how is the Big J related to other great basketball players?

The colorful rivalry between the Crispa Redmanizers and the Toyota Tamaraws captured the attention of our baskeball-crazy nation back in the 1970s.  At the forefront of the on- and off-court action were Robert Jaworski for Toyota and Philip Cezar for Crispa.  Both were known for their physical game and passionate love for the sport.  The two eventually worked together as players-coaches of Ginebra San Miguel.

Jawo-CezarRobert Jaworski and Philip Cezar are separated by 21 genealogical steps.  They do not share a bloodline; but Cezar is the nephew of the husband of the grandaunt of the wife of the second cousin of the husband of the first cousin of the husband of the mother of Jaworski.  Another way to see the relationship:  Cezar is the second cousin once removed of the wife of the second cousin of the husband of the first cousin of the husband of the mother of Jaworksi.

Another PBA cager, James Yap, shares a closer link to Robert Jaworski, via marriages into the Cojuanco-Aquino Family, with only 7 genelogical steps separating them.  Yap is the husband of the first cousin of the wife of the son of Jaworski.
