Early this week, Los Angeles superstar Kobe Bryant described the Philippines as "home away from home." It didn't take long before he decided to come back.

Bryant, along with New Orleans Hornets' Chris Paul, Sacramento Kings' Tyreke Evans, Oklahoma Thunder's James Harden, and Minnesota Timberwolves rookie Derrick Williams will be coming to Manila this July 23-24 to play against a selection of Smart Gilas and PBA players.

Talk n' Text head coach Chot Reyes initially shared information about the event via his Twitter account Friday.

"Kobe,Chris Paul,Tyreke Evans,Deandre Jordan,James Harden,Derrick Williams + 2 more @ d Araneta on July 23-24. Buy ur tickets now! 9115555," Reyes said on his Twitter page "@choachot."
He followed up the message with information about the ticket prices saying: "SMART ULTIMATE ALL STAR WEEKEND TICKETS: Patron P5500 Lower Box P3800 Upper A 1500 Upper B 800 GA 350. 4 a chance to watch KB & CP3 Live!"

MVP Foundation president Al Panlilio finally confirmed the event in a message to GMA News Online.

GMA News Online tried to confirm with Ticketnet as to whether or not tickets are already being sold, but the ticket agent advised interested parties to wait, as there hasn't been any information released on when tickets for the event will be released.

Event organizers will hold a press conference 5:30 p.m. Friday at the Araneta Coliseum to disclose more details about the event. — Renee A. Fopalan/RSJ/OMG, GMA News
