NBA MVP and Los Angeles Lakers superstar Kobe Bryant is coming back to Manila! Nike has made an official announcement that NBA superstar Kobe Bryant will be in Manila, Philippines on July 21, 2009 (this actually falls on a Tuesday so I’m guessing there will be many students who will cut classes so that they can keep up with the Kobe Bryant in Manila schedule).
Kobe’s much-awaited Asia Tour 2009 will kick off in Manila then the LA Lakers player will be off to Singapore, Taipei, Hong Kong, Shanghai and Cheng Du. During this Asia Tour, Kobe Bryant will also promote the new Nike Dream Season sneakers exclusively released for Asia.
I’m sure Kobe will be a busy bee while he’s here in the Philippines. Actually, by the time he comes over, he has most probably finished filming a Nike commercial with our very own Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao.
That much-awaited Nike commercial will also reportedly feature golf master Tiger Woods.
Which brings me to the title of my post…can you guys imagine if Kobe Bryant visits us here in Mindanao?
I mean, just think of the possibility…what if Manny Pacquiao invites Kobe Bryant over and let the NBA superstar see firsthand just how safe Mindanao is? Manny can also prove to Kobe that there are so many basketball aficionados here in Mindanao, too, who would definitely get a kick out of seeing him in the flesh!
And yeah, a Kobe Bryant in Mindanao invitation made possible by Pambansang Kamao Manny Pacquiao will really do wonders for his PR.
Remember…Manny’s gunning for a congressional seat in Sarangani!
