PBA: Who had the better debut? Stan or Kief?

Both players destined to be linked until their respective PBA careers are up, it might be wise to compare their debut performances.
Christian Standhardinger and Kiefer Ravena went 1-2 on the 2017 PBA Draft.
Naturally, the two players will be linked for the rest of their PBA careers. That's usually how it works for the top 2 picks.
Ravena joined an NLEX team that struggled in its first season under new coach Yeng Guiao.
And while the Road Warriors are currently struggling in the 2018 Commissioner's Cup, the Phenom's presence was felt almost immediately in the All-Filipino.
As for Standhardinger, the Fil-German forward just started his career with the super loaded San Miguel Beermen Wednesday after a stint with Hong Kong Eastern in the ABL.
With both players destined to be linked until their respective PBA careers are up, it might be wise to compare their debut performances.
You know, for future reference.
