NBA star Kobe Bryant of the Los Angeles Lakers is in town today, July 13, as part of his five-city tour for sports brand Nike. He'll spend just one day in Manila. At 1:30 p.m., he will be at the Charity Outreach for Gawad Kalinga; at the Nike Park, The Fort at 3 p.m.; and then a basketball show at the Araneta Coliseum at 5 p.m.

This is Bryant's third time to visit the country. He made similar stops in Manila in 2007 and 2009.
