Yesterday, we lost a legend in Kobe Bryant. And although a lot of us don’t know him personally, it is safe to say that he has definitely made a mark on a lot of people.
As a basketball-loving nation, the Philippines is particularly devastated. Kobe showed us how to be great and how to succeed with pure determination. He taught us that you can achieve anything if you’re willing to work hard for it! This strength of spirit is something each Filipino can relate to, which is why many of us feel directly connected to this legend.
Check out the different tributes found in the Philippines to one of the most unforgettable basketball icons out there:
