Uh-oh! Fans compare Ricci Rivero to Kiefer Ravena
Smells like a looming fandom war.
After Ricci Rivero’s shouting controversy, hoop fans can’t help but compare him to another fan-favorite cager, Kiefer Ravena.
A Twitter user said that much like Rivero, the Phenom is well-loved by his fans – but he never made such a rude behavior towards his diehard supporters.
Dapat si Kiefer Ravena ang may merchandise eh. You’d wanna wear something that represents a true Phenom. Yung may napatunayan na. Hindi yung sumikat lang dahil bumakat ang betlog sa picture. pic.twitter.com/5775tKVbYE

Last Monday, Rivero and the Gilas Pilipinas suffered a tough loss to his former team, the De La Salle Green Archers. The new UP Fighting Maroon recruit shouted at a fan who approached him for a selfie right after the game.
