Thirdy pinakamagaling sa ‘Pinas
WALANG pagsidlan ng tuwa ang coach ng San-en NeoPhoenix team sa Japan sa pagkuha kay Thirdy Ravena bilang kanilang import sa paparating na torneo ng Japane B.League.
Tingin ni Kenjiro Hongo, si Thirdy ang pinakamagaling na manlalaro ngayon sa Pilipinas.
“Thirdy is the best player in his country. Signing him is big for us,” sabi ni Hongo.
“He can play (shooting guard), he can play (small forward). He will be a key player this season.”
Bukod dito, hindi rin makapaniwala si Kenjiro na Pinoy si Thirdy dahil kung gumalaw ito ay parang Amerikano.
“I couldn’t believe it when I saw Thirdy,” sabi pa ni Kenjrio. “He’s like [an] American. I couldn’t believe that.”
Ayon pa kay Kenjiro, perfect fit si Thirdy sa kanilang koponan.
“The reason why we recruited him is because of his playing style fits our team. We are trying to find the best guy to be part of our organization,” dagdag nito.
