MANILA - Ateneo Blue Eagle Thirdy Ravena's comeback game after getting a suspension on their last match-up against the UP Fighting Maroons that made him missed action on their game against the FEU Tamaraws made him realised a lot of things.
Due to a rule, having suspension means that you are disqualified for having any individual awards. And that means for the first time since Season 76, this season we will not see any Ravena included in the Mythical 5 selection.
Ravena told the reporters post-game that, "Right now I'm really happy mas naka focus on my team and para sa akin ang importante yung championship. Sa totoo lang naman walang sense of fulfilment pag may individual award ka but you can't really bring your team with you."
Ravena also added that, "Para sa akin mas importante lahat kami as a team na nage-enjoy kasi yun yung tinrabaho and pinaghirapan namin for 8 months."
Ravena had 10 points, five rebounds, and four assists in his comeback game against the UE Red Warriors.
Ravena then realized a lot of things and shared to us that, "Doon sa suspension, nakita ko na ang dami palang nagmamahal sa akin, ang daming sumusuporta sa akin and I don't really dwell on the negative."
Ravena added that, "I have a lot of people who have my back and the best thing I can do is to play my best for them."
