Could Kobe be in Europe this fall?
If being swept by the Dallas Mavericks wasn’t bad enough for LA Lakers fans, this news made be even worse. Kobe Bryant, the face of the Lakers and owner of five rings, may be seriously considering playing overseas this fall if NBA remains in a lockout. Bryant, who has been linked to Turkish squad Besiktas, said he is keeping his options open. Click the picture to enlarge.
“One thing about basketball is that it is a global sport now,” Bryant told Reuters in an interview.”So you can play anywhere you want to. As far as myself, I just train. I just train and be prepared for anybody that calls. Whether the NBA starts again or a team in Europe or here in China decides to call, I’ll be ready,” he said. As a huge fan of basketball, I hope the owners take the threats of their players seriously and end this lockout soon. [SOURCE]
