MANILA, PHILIPPINES – October 26, 2015: Kobe Bryant and Lenovo are challenging all basketball lovers to take their best shot and be part of Kobe Bryant’s #81HourChallenge, an 81-hour non-stop basketball shooting challenge.

In January 22, 2006, Kobe Bryant had one of the best performances in NBA history. In a game against Toronto Raptors, Kobe scored 81 points, the second highest NBA score next to a 100-point performance back in 1962. This year is the basketball legend’s 20th anniversary in NBA, and Lenovo celebrates his historic 81-point game by launching the #81HourChallenge campaign as well as the Lenovo VIBE P1 smartphone.

“Kobe Bryant has always believed in his dreams. He was determined to achieve his goals and with the right attitude and perseverance, Kobe Bryant made it this far. In the same manner, Lenovo never stops chasing perfection. We work hard to offer only the best to our valued customers. Today, we celebrate the stories behind Kobe and Lenovo’s success,” said Dino Romano, Country Manager, Lenovo Smartphones, Philippines.
