The Black Mamba Back In Manila!
Kobe “Black Mamba” Bryant is back in the country to once again to encourage the Filipino youth to realize their dreams through sports.
Bryant arrived at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport Tuesday aboard a private jet as he kicked off his five-city Nike Asian tour.
This is Kobe’s third visit to the Philippines as Nike’s brand ambassador. Manila is his first stop before moving on to Seoul and various cities in China.
Taking inspiration from Kobe’s passion and dedication, the Nike tour is designed to lead young hoopsters down the path to greatness.
At 3 p.m. Wednesday, Kobe goes to the Nike Park at The Fort, and then to the main event at the Araneta Coliseum at 5 p.m.
Players from the Nike-sponsored FEU Tamaraws, DLSU Green Archers, ADMU Blue Eagles, and Smart Gilas Pilipinas are expected to be at the Araneta for a demonstration game to be joined by Kobe.
Kobe will also teach players how to better improve their skills.
