Kobe returns to Manila for Mamba Mentality tour

Mamba Mentality
Nike athlete Kobe Bryant will be in Manila for the Mamba Mentality Tour on 25 and 26 June, where the basketball legend will inspire the upcoming generation of young basketballers to embrace Mamba Mentality. Mamba Mentality is a philosophy derived from Kobe’s approach to the game, and his aspirations of chasing perfection through hard work, resilience and passion in every aspect of life on and off the court. This is the Mamba’s first visit to the Philippines after his retirement from the NBA.

The Mamba Mentality Tour aims to challenge and inspire the mindset of Pinoy ballers to be relentless, resilient and fearless in the sport of basketball and life. This will be achieved through Kobe Academy on 26 June where selected ballers, who have shown that they have the skills and Mamba Mentality mindset, will train with the Black Mamba himself.

To qualify for the Kobe Academy, ballers are invited to join the Kobe Academy Pre-Camp on 22 – 24 June to bring their game and be challenged at 4am basketball sessions. Known for his legendary work ethic, Kobe would wake up and start his training sessions in the early morning before team practice, sometimes as early as 4am. 

Filipino fans can also look forward to Mamba Mentality Night to witness the legacy of his 20-year career at Smart Araneta Coliseum.
