Ravena, Pessumal shrug off stare down, rough housing: Tough love, move on!
Former Blue Eagles team mates Kiefer Ravena and Von Pessumal bared their claws at each other when the two met for the first time in opposing team in the pros.
The bad blood was apparently triggered by Raven’s stare down at a fallen Pessumal after the NLEX rookie blooked the San Miguel sophomore.
Pessumal, who has played under the shadow of The Phenom during their college years, apparently did not like Ravena’s taunting.
So what did Pessumal do?
Things got REAL between former college teammates, Von Pessumal and Kiefer Ravena! 😮

It’s obvious Pessumal doesn’t know shit about making cheap shots on the court like you know who.
Oh well, Pessumal’s team got the win in an ill-tempered match which had two ejections, a kick in the balls, an N-bomd and dirty finger. Ravena suffered his tird straight loss after winning his two opening games.
It was Ravena who reacted first on Twitter and called it “tough love” from his former wingman.

Pessumal made a Twitter comeback and declared it was no skin off his nose.
Get over it everybody! It’s basketball. Good game
