Brother Thirdy Ravena, who already saw the big game coming.“I was kind of expecting him to do Kiefer things even in the PBA,” he said. Thirdy, coming off a championship with Ateneo in the UAAP, watched Kiefer’s PBA debut with dad Bong and mom Mozzy.“Usually, the transition is tough especially from college. Usually, when you’re a rookie, you feel nervous,” added Thirdy, who affectionately calls Kiefer ‘manong’ as a sign of respect. “But he was aggressive and he’s just playing his game. Now that I’ve seen him do that on a professional stage, that just speaks about how his game is and how good he is.” 8th Top Leaders Forum assessed the progress of public-private efforts in building climate and disaster resilient communities BI on alert for illegally deployed OFWs to Iraq Typhoon Kammuri accelerates, gains strength en route to PH Cayetano: 4 social media groups behind SEA Games ‘sabotage’ LATEST STORIES ADVERTISEMENTlast_img
