Kiefer wasn’t the only Ravena to receive something from The King.
LeBron James and Nike sent a package and special letter to his younger brother, current Ateneo Blue Eagle, Thirdy, as well.
"Sometimes you think you will always come second. Those days are over. This is Thirdy's time. Don't think of whatever anyone thinks or says about you. Just play your game. I promise you at the end of the day, all those doubts will go down the drain. Go out there and battle your doubts." – @kingjames can't express how thankful I am to the Nike family for making this possible! @jappyparulan @nikebasketball @nike #BattleTheDoubt #Swooshlove

Thirdy posted a video of the unboxing earlier today, also receiving a pair of Nike Zoom LeBron Soldier 10’s.
The letter from James however made sure to highlight Thirdy stepping out from his brother’s shadow, as detailed in the caption, “Sometimes you think you will always come second. Those days are over. This is Thirdy’s time. Don’t think of whatever anyone thinks or says about you. Just play your game.”
Thirdy’s Ateneo Blue Eagles are currently in fifth place in the UAAP with a 4-3 record, tied with Adamson and NU. Through seven games, he’s averaging a team-high 11.3 points on 53.7 percent shooting, 6.7 rebounds, and 1.7 assists.
