Ricci Rivero, Thirdy Ravena, and other Pinoy basketball stars have Kobe Paras' back.
DLSU's Ricci Rivero, Ateneo's Thirdy Ravena, and Alab Pilipinas' Ray Parks Jr. wasted no time in showing their full support for Kobe Paras after his decision to leave college and turn pro.

Rivero, a projected Gilas Pilipinas player for the 2023 World Cup, kept it short and simple for Paras, who was already tasked as the leader of the #23for23 squad by national team head coach Chot Reyes.
Ravena, another #23for23 pool member, joined in on expressing all-out support for Kobe.

Meanwhile, Parks, a longtime friend of Paras and fellow second generation basketball player, offered solid advice for the 6'6" forward.
Parks may be the best person to hand Kobe advice, as he has some experience in the NBA's second-tier circuit, playing for the G-League team Texas Legends, as well as the Dallas Mavericks' Summer League team, becoming the first Filipino-born player to do so.
Even Andre Paras, Kobe's brother, didn't let the opportunity to show everyone how proud he is of his younger bro.
