Ravena made sure to invest his hard-earned money into something important—his own property.
Thirdy Ravena has gone a long way since leaving the Philippines to play in the Japan B.League.
And what better way to spend one’s hard-earned money than buying a home to call your own. That’s exactly what Ravena did.
The San-en NeoPhoenix guard recently posted videos of his new two-storey loft condo unit in the country with the caption: “Still can’t believe I get to call this mine.”
The 26-year-old Ravena has been playing in Japan for several years already. As a result, the former Ateneo Blue Eagles star has been earning a higher salary compared to his rookie year in 2020.
Various sources indicate that when Ravena initially joined as an Asian import in the Japan B.League, his salary as a newcomer ranged between $10,000 to $50,000 per month—or equivalent to P500,000 to P2.5 million, depending on his performance and the market size of his team.
But given Ravena’s significant impact on the Japanese market, he has also become an extremely valuable asset not only to San-En, but also to the league as a whole.
That’s also on top of his endorsement deals and possibly businesses that he owns.
But aside from his significance in Japan from a marketing standpoint, Ravena has also seemingly improved his performance for the NeoPhoenix each year.
In the recently-concluded Japan B.League season, Ravena averaged 11.5 points, 4.9 rebounds, and 4.3 assists in 60 games.
The 6-foot-2 guard was also recently included in Gilas Pilipinas’ 21-man pool for the FIBA World Cup.
Definitely, everything has been on the up and up for Thirdy—and we’re all for it.
