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.

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.
