Thirdy Ravena liked anything and everything he saw in kuya Kiefer’s debut

Kiefer Ravena wasted no time in proving his worth as the second overall pick in the 2017 PBA Draft.

Tallying 18 points, 12 assists, seven rebounds, and two steals, NLEX’s prized rookie was, without a doubt, a big part of his team’s 118-112 triumph over Kia on Wednesday.

And so, he had the W and he had the double-double in just his first game in the PBA.

While there are, of course, a number who questioned whether or not “The Phenom” will be able to be, well, phenomenal in the professional ranks, there was one person who never doubted. “I was kinda expecting him to do Kiefer things kahit sa PBA,” younger brother Thirdy said after his kuya’s debut.

The recently-crowned champion Blue Eagle was in attendance at the Filoil Flying V Centre as the eldest Ravena spread his wings in the PBA.

There was nothing Thirdy did not like from what he saw. “It’s nice to see him be aggressive lalo na sa debut game kasi ‘di ba, usually, dun ka kinakabahan? He was just playing his game so I was proud,” he shared.

He then continued, “Now I’ve seen him do (what he does) on a professional stage, that just speaks to how good his game is.”

The UAAP Finals MVP was returning the favor as kuya Kiefer had been there watching several Ateneo games in the recently-concluded season.

Just like his older brother always wished him luck, Thirdy did the same earlier in the day. “Sabi ko lang good luck and just ay your game. Alam ko namang sanay na siya sa ganito.”
