Unfortunately, basketball seemed to be taken away from a resurging Kiefer Ravena.

After getting banned by FIBA, NLEX’s Ravena has to wait for a couple of months to re-introduce himself once again in the big league due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

His comeback conference was a stellar one, leading the Road Warriors to a number one finish in the regular season but fell in the playoffs.

With Ravena starting to get his groove back and with the kind of performance he showed in his short PBA comeback conference, all eyes are on him now.

Expectations are high on Ravena once the PBA goes back into action and despite getting quarantined due to the virus, Ravena said he is only getting better.

The Phenom has been using his days-off wisely and has been intensely working out on his game while putting in hard work in his physical conditioning and strengthening.

Since the PBA announced that all teams are banned from conducting practices, Ravena has been consistently working out on his game saying that in this time you will have no coaches or teammates to help you hone what you are doing.

“You miss your teammates, you miss playing, you miss competing, you miss the people in the PBA,” Ravena said.
