The UCLA bound Kobe Paras visited his home country Philippines on Saturday to join the Nike Rise Legacy night basketball showdown wherein he played for team Destiny alongside other budding athletes in the UAAP and PBA Ranks such as LA Tenorio, Jared Dillinger, RR Garcia, Greg Slaughter, Jeff Chan, Jeron Teng and Nico Salva. They were pitted against team Legacy headed by his legendary father Benjie Paras, Ren Ren Ritualo, Olsen Racela, Alvin Teng, Mark Cardona and other well-decorated ballers.
Just like in the recently concluded adidas Nations, Kobe wowed the crowed with his dazzling array of moves and jaw-dropping dunks including this one over the 6'3 Jeron Teng and the 6'4 Nico Salva.
Fast forward to the 1:55 mark of the video.
