‘House of Kobe’ inaugurated in Valenzuela City a day before Bryant’s death


NBA legend Kobe Bryant’s legacy will surely live on for the people of Valenzuela City.

Residents of the city up north will be able to relive the greatness of the 5-time NBA champion in the “House of Kobe”, a basketball court inaugurated just hours before his untimely, shocking death from a helicopter crash.

The court is one of those constructed in Valenzuela City that was themed after the NBA. Other hoops courts were inspired by other NBA teams like the Chicago Bulls, Boston Celtics, and Houston Rockets, among others.

For this particular court located in Barangay Karuhatan in Valenzuela City, Kobe Bryant was chosen to be the inspiration for being the “greatest Laker of all time.”

Bryant, 41, and his 13-year-old daughter Gianna were among those who died in a helicopter crash in California early Monday (Manila time).
