Kobe Manila Mania is finally over and I must say that this has to be the best tour so far. And that's coming from a non-Kobe fan. It was dope that he played with college players against the national team. He didn't even break a sweat when he visited in '09! Maybe he did but only because it was so damn warm in ULTRA.

I gotta admit I was one of the biggest haters until his fans gave up on the whole "Kobe is better than Jordan" argument (stats don't lie :p). With all the love he's shown Manila by visiting 4 times in 13 years, 3 with Nike and 1 in 1998, I can't help but give the dude the props he deserves.

He may not be the G.O.A.T. but he definitely is the best to have ever visited Manila.

Let's all give it up for Nike Philippines!

I don't have photos from The Peninsula Manila press conference, nor Gawad Kalinga, nor Nike Park BHS, nor his dinner at Robot as I didn't have access BUT I do have some nice photos and a video from Araneta Coliseum. Ogilvy hooked it up big time with front row seats. Thanks, you guys!

This entry is for Kobe fans. The true Kobe fans.

Enjoy. :)

Cafe Bola while waiting for the winners to claim their tickets. One guy flaked even though I waited until 4:45pm. SMH.

Say hello to Michelle (Gadget Magazine) and Paolo (DJ Switchtrik). I think they were terrified when they saw the usher leading me and my buddy Paolo to seats next to theirs. I mean why wouldn't they be? I screamed more for Bianca Gonzales than Kobe. Ahahahahahahahaha.

After the 10-minute game the MC announced that Kobe requested for 8 more minutes and will be playing with the losing team. Madness ensued.

I dunno how he ended up with a FEU jersey. Looks like crap with the rest of his gear. Ateneo should've laced him up right away!
