Following Kobe’s arrival in Manila, Derrick Rose and Kevin Durant will catch a quick flight over from their tours over in China to play some ball with the Black Mamba. Rose and Durant will come down and participate in a couple of games vs. Smart Gilas Pilipinas and PBA selection at Araneta Coliseum, which is the last stop of the day for Kobe. *Update – July 23, 7pm – Full Details Here*
Details are still coming in for the event, but these NBA Superstars are all meeting up in the Phillippines to help raise money to support the MVP Sports Foundation, which helps develop Filipino athletes.
So far, the details of the basketball event is that a team of NBA players that include Kobe, Rose and Durant will play against the Pilipinas and PBA selection. NBA players that are being listed on the rosters included Darko Milicic, Tyreke Evans, DeAndre Jordan of the Clippers and Russell Westbrook of the OKC Thunder.
The BIG rumors are Kevin Love and the Clippers Blake Griffin may also be joining the teams, so I hope all our Filipinos of Lakers Nation have their cameras ready and youtube accounts ready to go to share this event with us.
