Quietly, Kobe Bryant’s “barn storming tour” is taking place in Manilla. Bryant along with a group of other NBA superstars (including the President of the NBA’s Players Association) will play two exhibition games at the Araneta Coliseum.
The roster consists of NBA MVP Derrick Rose, scoring champion Kevin Durant, Chris Paul, former Rookie of the Year Tyreke Evans, James Harden, Derek Fisher, Derrick Williams, the No. 2 draft pick, and dunk contest winner, Javale McGee. Mamba is the coach.
Want to know what the “Big 3” were up to? Dwyane Wade was getting a facial then set hopping from LeBron’s “Take a Sheet” commercial shoot to girlfriend Gabrielle Union’s set (she’s currently filming “Think like a lady, act like a man).
While Chris Bosh and his wife Adrienne attended the comedy show of Heat executive Alonzo Mourning’s charity event, ZO’s Summer Groove. Dave Chappelle was the surprise guest.
Celebrating it’s 15th year, this will be the first year the all-star game won’t take place. Casualty of the lockout.
