Kobe Bryant to visit Manila on June 25, 26

NBA and Los Angeles Lakers legend Kobe Bryant will be in Manila on June 25 to 26 for the Mamba Mentality Tour, his first visit to the Philippines ever since his retirement.

The Nike sponsored event will be highlighted by the “Kobe Academy” on June 26 where selected ballers, who have shown that they have the skills and Mamba Mentality mindset, will get to train with the 20-year NBA veteran himself.

To qualify for the Kobe Academy, ballers are invited to join the Kobe Academy Pre-Camp on June 22-24 to bring their game and be challenged at 4 am basketball sessions to emulate the Black Mamba’s legendary work ethic wherein Bryant would wake up and start his training sessions early in the morning, sometimes as early as 4 am, before practicing with the Lakers.


Filipino fans can also look forward to Mamba Mentality Night to witness the legacy of his 20-year career at the Smart Araneta Coliseum.

The Mamba Mentality Tour aims to challenge and inspire the mindset of Pinoy ballers to be relentless, resilient and fearless in the sport of basketball and life.
