Borneo — Wu Chun met Kobe Bryant in a charity basketball game last weekend. Chun had a chance to meet the famous American NBA player at the 3rd Annual Sprite ‘True To Yourself’ Star Basketball charity exhibition in Shanghai, China.
Reportedly, the Bruneian celebrity as well as owner of Fitness Zone said, “I have to say thank you to Coca Cola. Being the endorser of this gigantic brand has allowed me to enter a totally different basketball world where I get to personally meet the best basketball players on the planet.
“Last February, I was invited by Coca Cola to witness the NBA All-Star game in Houston and this time, it’s a very meaningful charity show in China. Coca Cola has also shown their appreciation by giving me their classic Coca Cola bottle with my Chinese name printed on the packaging,” he said.
This year, another two former NBA players, John Starks and Stephon Marbury, also took part in the charity game.
Touching on the differences between this year and the last two years, Wu Chun said the biggest difference was that he had the opportunity to play with and against Kobe Bryant but due to his injuries, he was unable to play this year. However, there were two other NBA players who joined this charity show this year and one of them was John Starks who played for the New York Knicks.
