LOS ANGELES (AP) — Los Angeles Lakers shooting guard Kobe Bryant announced yesterday that he will retire after this season, writing that "this season is all I have left to give."

His decision is not totally unexpected, given the fact that he has said many times in recent weeks that he has considered this season his last. After twenty years, two Olympic gold medals, five championship rings, 17 All-Star appearances, an 81-point game that ranks as the second-best in NBA history and more than 32,000 points, Bryant's career is officially winding down.

"With 17 NBA All-Star selections, an NBA MVP, five NBA championships with the Lakers, two Olympic gold medals and a relentless work ethic, Kobe Bryant is one of the greatest players in the history of our game," NBA commissioner Adam Silver said in a statement. "Whether competing in the Finals or hoisting jump shots after midnight in an empty gym, Kobe has an unconditional love for the game.

"I join Kobe's millions of fans around the world in congratulating him on an outstanding NBA career and thank him for so many thrilling memories."

Fans arriving at Staples Center last Sunday received a letter from Bryant in a black envelope embossed with gold.

"What you've done for me is far greater than anything I've done for you," Bryant wrote in the letter to fans. "I knew that each minute of each game I wore purple and gold. I honor it as I play today and for the rest of this season. My love for this city, this team and each of you will never fade. Thank you for this incredible journey."

He had an amazing career indeed. If you're an avid basketball fan or collector, for sure, you too are curious to find out if the Nike Kobe series will continue despite Mamba’s journey away from the game. Well, Vincenzo Monteroso from the Philippines, has sketched an awesome rendition of what a Nike Kobe Hybrid would look like if every applicable silhouette merged together.

His design features a high-top shoe that is very similar to the Nike Kobe X. His natural makeup incorporates notable features from the Kobe 1 to 10 shoes. To see more of his “Decades of Greatness” rendition, check out the stellar sketch below.

UPDATE:  A friend Jon Esteban Macapagal has offered to make a composite figure of Vincenzo's sketch. The details are spot on! Check them out below:

MANILA, PHILIPPINES - The overflowing number of products out in the market makes it almost impossible for Filipinos today to decide what the best ones to buy are. Now that the Christmas season is fast approaching, every consumer is faced with a streamline of options from the latest electronics, stylish clothing, fast moving consumer goods, and even in demand sensational items.

 (, the Philippines’ One Stop Shopping and Selling Destination, knows the trendiest products out there to be enjoyed by consumers online. In a study conducted by Lazada, Bluetooth watches, GoPro action cameras, laptops, drones and smartphones ranked as the top products preferred by Filipinos to have this Christmas. Filipinos nowadays search for unique finds that are hot, sensational and at the same time worth the money. The infograph below illustrates the rest of the findings.

Lazada, with its nationwide delivery, makes these products accessible to Filipinos whether they’re in Luzon, Visayas or Mindanao. What makes shopping at Lazada even more advantageous is that you don’t have to experience the heavy road congestion going to the mall in order to purchase what you want. Also, you can buy products and have them delivered to your friends and loved ones wherever they are in the Philippines.

55% of Filipinos spend most of their time browsing and researching for products which could potentially catch their interest. In this case, where the consumer doesn’t have anything specific in mind, browsing through categories could help with their purchase decision. Finding the best product within the category list is essential in choosing the right Christmas gift. In a comparative research of Lazada, we found out that for both Google and Lazada, the top-searched categories are Mobiles & Tablets and Computers & Laptops. Below are the top categories per platform.

What’s one of the first things that comes to your mind when people talk about Skateboarding? A hobby? A groupie activity? Out of school youths getting chased by pigs all day? Or the way most people look at it; teens with long hair who smoke pot and ride all day. Even though some of it might be true, you might want to look a little more into it.

Skateboarding competitions and demos, tricks contest and signing sessions. It’s been around here in the Philippines for quite some time now. For so many years, it has developed into a phenomenon. What most people don’t realize is that exemplifies the values of sportsmanship, perseverance, and determination. I have friends who were dedicated skateboarders, and I have watched them grown up into fine young men. As the adage goes, don’t judge a book by its cover. With that being said, if you love skateboarding, or want to have some fun next weekend (November 14, 2015), the Mountain Dew Tour Am Series is gracing us with their presence! On November 14, Circuit Makati Skate Park will feature skateboarding competitions, signing sessions, and demos with Jordan Maxham, Sean Malto and Justin Schulte. Moreover, Parokya ni Edgar will also be there!

We know for the fact that Amazon doesn't accept product shipments to some Asian countries including the Philippines. Well, this is due to many cases of fraud credit cards, that is why upon entering your PH delivery address, Amazon will eventually reject it in the checkout process.

Some say Amazon will only deliver small items like DVDs, CDs, or books in the Philippines but not huge stuff or such that are expensive. I also learned that Amazon only prioritizes  U.S. or U.K. delivery addresses, so anyone outside U.S./U.K.  will alternatively need to use virtual addresses to receive their orders.

With the help of Kango Express, we no longer have to rely on relatives or family members to buy and ship our items to our address here in the Philippines for us.Kango Express is there to help us Shop, Ship, and Save.

Skate Shoes PH was at #HappifyKangoExpressLaunch event last week and discovered the newest package forwarding service in the Philippines: Kango Express. I also received an Amazon Gift Card plus the Kango Express shipping credit. Cool eh?

Now, we can purchase any items online in the US and U.K. and have it shipped straight to your home or office in the Philippines freight fee, and without customs charge. Cool eh? It's almost the same service being provided by Johnny Air but with some added features.

Upon selecting your items at the retailer’s site, you will complete the checkout and payment process using our U.S. or U.K. warehouse as the ship to address, along with your Kango Express account number referenced in Line 2 of the address. This address information will always be visible to you in your account dashboard once you register and sign in.

Some retailers may not accept payment using international credit cards. In that case, you can use our Buying Service. For a small fee, we’ll place the order for you and make payment.
