I’ve had the incredible fortune of having covered Kobe in 2007, 2009 and again this year. Every year I wonder how he’s going to top the last one. Turns out I need not have worried because last night was an awesome experience the local basketball world will not soon forget. I will try my best to write about the 2 day experience of being with the press as we ‘picked up’ Kobe from the airport, attended his press conference at the Manila Pen, watched him train (or at least, try to train) a few kids at Gawad Kalinga Taguig, and finally watched him play with a UAAP Nike Selection vs. Smart Gilas.
I got tons of pics, and my memory’s still fresh ready to be typed up. But before all that, here’s a nice teaser to whet your appetite just in case you’re not feeling it yet.
