Kobe Bryant Manila This August 12, 2013!
When In Manila, basketball mania is at an all-time high as NBA superstars visit the country one after another. LeBron James caused huge citizen traffic outside Nike Park Fort Bonifacio last July in the Manila leg of his Witness History Tour, followed by James Harden and Eric Gordon days after. In less than a week, perennial NBA favorite Kobe Bryant will visit the Philippines (for the nth time) as Lenovo Mobile gears their “Walang Iwanan” campaign into full swing.
2008 NBA MVP. NBA champion, 5 times. Finals MVP, 2 times. All-Star Game MVP, 4 times. NBA All-Star, 15 times. Kobe Bryant may be coming off a dismal 2013 campaign abruptly ended by injury, but in his 17 seasons donning the purple and gold, he has cemented himself as one of the three best basketball players of our generation, only to be compared with “His Airness” and LeBron James. (Derrick Rose fans may disagree, but we’ll make sipsip to Rose on September, promise!)
To reduce mass hysteria and anguish akin to July’s Nike BGC incident, Lenovo Mobile opted to go the traditional capitalist route as fans who purchased Lenovo smartphones from August 1-8 get the chance to win one of 1,000 select passes to see the Black Mamba in person on August 12, 2013. (So if you are one of the aforementioned hardcore, middle-class fans, don’t forget to visit www.lenovomobile.com.ph/walangiwananmanila to enter the electronic draw happening tomorrow.) And get this, 100 event guests will be selected at random for an exclusive photo taking and signing session with Kobe! Best grab a fresh Nike basketball, just in case you’re one of them lucky chaps.
Still so-so about going to this event? Guess it’s up to Kobe Bryant to personally convince you then.
When In Manila, catch the NBA fever as Kobe Bryant visits Manila once more this August 12, 2013. “Kita-kits” if you are one of the lucky 1,000 to be invited to the event…And pray to God you get even luckier to get up close and personal with Kobe!
