NBA Stars Arrive in Manila as Waiting for Kobe Bryant Begins

MB.com – The Philippines must think this NBA lockout is best thing since lumpia as NBA Stars have arrived on their island country today. The nine-man team comprised of Javale McGree, Tyreke Evans, James Harden, and Rookie Derrick Williams have arrived and are waiting for Chris Paul, Kevind Durant, current NBA MVP Derrick Rose, and our Lakers own Derek Fisher. Kobe Bryant is currently wrapping up his China Tour in Shanghai and is expected to arrive on Friday, which would already be the second time Kobe’s been to the island in the last 2 weeks.

It’s truly amazing that even with young superstars like Kevin Durant, Chris Paul and Derrick Rose, they are relatively nothing compared the amount of star power Kobe Bryant brings. It would be safe to even assume that because his relation to Kobe, even Derek Fisher would garner more attention than the youngsters.

Speaking of Derek Fisher, it is really interesting to see him traveling so far to play in this international exhibition came weeks after a note from the union to encourage their players to search overseas was sent. I’m just curious to see if this is a negotiation move and if its’ not, why isn’t the president of the players union at home, trying to figure out a solution instead of playing overseas?

Anyways, the event has been called the Smart Ultimate All-Star Weekend and will be held at the Araneta Coliseum. If it is anything compared to last week’s event where Kobe visited the Laker-fied country, the roof of the Araneta Coliseum better get reinforced because I have a feeling the crowds there are fully capable of blowing that stadium up with the amount of noise they can produce.
