Thirdy talks about post-Game 3 hug with Bea de Leon


It’s the hug that launched a thousand ‘ships’.

A scene from Ateneo’s post-championship celebration last Sunday got fans gushing over the possibility of collegiate stars coming together to become yet another power couple.

For months on now, Twitter has been shipping ThirBea, BeaRdy, among many other names. Engines went into overdrive as shippers were blessed with this post-Game 3 clip.

Needless to say, fans LOST IT.

And just this week, Finals MVP Thirdy Ravena finally spoke up on the talked-about hug:
