Ricardo Brown posts emotional message to late Danding Cojuangco


Respect, Admiration, and Loyalty — that is how Ricardo Brown describe Eduardo “Danding” Cojuangco.

Brown was emotional on Facebook when he gave tribute to his Boss’ who passed away at the age of 85 on Tuesday Night.

“Painful as hell to write this,” Brown said while also uploading a picture with Danding in 1981 Jones Cup.

It was Danding who brought home the Fil-American Brown from US in 1981 for him to build his first national team — which is the Northern Cement Consolidated that was handled by coach Ron Jacobs.

“You know my heart was with you from Day One when I got off that plane with (noo’y Basketball Association of the Philippines secretary general) Nestor Mayoralgo at Doc (Fernando) Carrascoso and stepped on Philippine soil for the first time,” said Brown who was famously known as “The Quick Brown Fox” in PBA.
