Jordan Brand continues to extend its wings globally as the brand has signed Kiefer Ravena, its first-ever Filipino athlete.
Ravena recently averaged 19.4 points, 5.5 rebounds, and 4.6 assists per game for the NLEX Road Warriors in the Philippines Basketball Association.
Ravena, however, has his eyes set on something bigger. With the help of his brother, and his teammates, Ravena and the rest of the national team have the Philippines in a good position to qualify for the 2021 FIBA Asia Cup. In addition to that, the Philippines have been selected to co-host the FIBA Basketball World Cup in 2023.
“I feel like I’ve been welcomed with open arms. I still can’t believe it. I remember speaking to the Brand about it last year. The news has been embraced by a lot of people around me. It’s amazing to be part of this incredible team of athletes,” Ravena said.
