Dunk-Deprived Island Nation Of The Philippines Gets Way Too Excited Over Pedestrian Kobe Bryant Jam
Kobe Bryant was in Manila recently to kick off his five-city Nike tour across Asia. As to be expected, he participated in an exhibition game featuring several Nike-sponsored teams. As to be expected, he dunked, and it was pretty sweet. Routine two-handed jam, followed by a solid four seconds of swinging from the hoop. Standard, right?
Well, the way the Filipino crowd reacted, you'd think he'd just pulled a Michael-Jordan-in-Space-Jam and extended both arms far enough to dunk from half-court. Basically, the entire country seemingly goes berserk from inside a mid-sized basketball arena.
