Paul Rico G. Maierhofer (born November 4, 1985) is a Filipino-Austrian professional basketball player who currently plays for Barangay Ginebra San Miguel in the Philippine Basketball Association. He was drafted 2nd overall by the Purefoods Tender Juicy Giants in 2009.
As a rookie with the Giants, he made an immediate impact on the team as an athletic and rebounding combo forward. He was one of the key players that helped former teammate James Yap and the others beat the Alaska Aces in the finals of the 2009-10 PBA Philippine Cup. He suffered an ACL injury midway last season.
