Bong Ravena misses Thirdy’s B.League debut

TNT head coach Bong Ravena could not be there for his son Thirdy when he packed his bags last October 15 to go to Japan and play for San-En. 

Sadly, the Ravena patriarch was also unable to watch his son’s professional game debut.

At around 5:35PM (Manila time), Thirdy’s game tipped-off at Shimane’s homecourt at Yonago Industrial Gymnasium. Some 2,586 kilometers away, Bong was preparing TNT for its game against Meralco at the SMART 5G-powered AUF Sports & Cultural Center.

“Well, actually sabay ‘yung game eh. So I didn’t get to watch his game,” lamented the 50-year-old Bong.

Thirdy was spectacular in his debut. He tallied 13 points, three rebounds, and two assists to help NeoPhoenix take its second win of the season, 83-82.

In Angeles, Pampanga, Bong would steer his squad to a 92-79 to snap their two-game slide.

“I’m just being told that they won by a point, so I’m just happy and wishing him all the best, and hopefully they’ll win more games,” he said after the game.

Fortunately for Bong, TNT has no games on Sunday.

He can sit back and watch Thirdy’s second game against Shimane over at B.League’s Facebook page at 12:35PM.
