Kobe Bryant on his annual tour through Asia, promoting the game, himself and selling some Nike shoes along the way. And he’s the biggest NBA star in Asia because he has been doing this for years.
How much do they love him in the Philippines? Watch the video below.
Kobe laced them up for an exhibition game and the video below is him making a steal and getting a runout for a dunk. Over here we would say Kobe is taking it at half speed and is not as explosive as he once was anyway. There, they don’t care. Listen to the crowd. They react like he just won the NBA finals (even the other guys on the bench are going nuts).
