MANILA - Basketball superstar Kobe Bryant has arrived in Manila, according to a post by Nike Zoom Kobe Facebook page early morning on Saturday.

Bryant is in Manila from June 25 to 26 for Nike's “Mamba Mentality Tour.”

This is his first visit to the Philippines since retiring from the NBA last April with a sensational 60-point output against the Utah Jazz.

"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," Nike said in a press statement.

Bryant will also hold a "Kobe Academy" clinic on June 26 with selected players who “have the skills and Mamba Mentality mindset.”
