Kiefer Ravena to TNT?

Former KaTropa head coach Nash Racela's got jokes as hours after news broke that he's been replaced by Bong Ravena as chief mentor of the flagship MVP franchise, he used socially media to playfully put a thought out there for PBA fans to argue all week long.

Racela tagged Kiefer Ravena, son of Bong and current NLEX point guard, on Twitter and said he should join his father in TNT.

"Lipat na! Haha," he wrote.

Of course, Racela likewise wished coach Bong good luck.

Both of them have been part of the TNT coaching staff for the longest time and Ravena was one of Nash's chief assistants when he got promoted to head coach.

"Good thigs come to those who wait. Wishing Bong Ravs and his revamped coaching staff the best this conference and beyond," Racela said.

After a 1-4 start to the Governors' Cup, including back-to-back lopsided defeats, Racela has been on indefinite leave.

Eric Gonzales coached TNT on an interim basis during the team's overtime victory over Kia.

Racela was also promoted from being an assistant after the 2016 season, taking over from Jong Uichico. In less than two seasons for the KaTropa, coach Nash had three semfinals stints and one Finals.

However, this season has been rough for TNT. The KaTropa have yet to make it back to the semis, losing to San Miguel in the quarterfinals of both the Philippine Cup and the Commissioner's Cup.
