Head coach Mac Cuan confirmed the development to SPIN.ph, after Ravena ended his stint with the Mighty Sports in Dubai. He wasn't able to play in his team's final game due to a hand injury, which Cuan said will heal up before the ex-King Eagle starts working out with Alab.
Ravena, who reportedly could suit up "towards the end of the eliminations," will be a welcome addition to the reeling squad that already banners Bobby Ray Parks, Jr. (shoulder injury) and Fil-Am Lawrence Domingo, as well as other local stalwarts.
So what exactly will 'The Phenom' bring to the table?

The spitfire guard has the ability to get hot from all cylinders. And when we say hot, we mean H-O-T.
Ravena's once-in-a-generation mix of basketball skills and overall court aggressiveness enables him to come up big in the game's pressure-packed moments.

Just ask Karim Abdul.
