    Kobe Would Take Super Deal In Italy?

    Kobe Bryant was asked on Friday if he would consider a super-lucrative deal from a team in Italy when he becomes a free agent next summer.

    Id go. Id probably go, said Bryant, during a USA Basketball press conference on Friday morning. Like Milan or something like that, where I grew up or something like that Peace out.

    Usually the words in between the quote symbols means that a certain person said them. In this case it was Kobe. You've never said peace out before? You're probably too cool to say something like that...would you prefere something like, "Catch ya later broham."

    This sucks. I hate the idea of losing our best players.

    But I think David Stern will step in and intervene if these are feasible threats. Maybe something like the MLS, where each team has the opportunity to sign one elite player outside of the salary cap.

    wade wouldnt turn it down either

    "It's the sudden wave of players bolting the league to play basketball overseas. "They throw 30, 40, 50 million a year at me? I can't turn that down," said Heat star Dwyane Wade, a free agent in 2010. Arizona Republic"

    Wow. I would take the deal for sure, but for the sake of my entertainment, I hope he doesn't.

    I'd love to see a European team pay someone like LeBron or Kobe over 50M year.

    I dont see it happening, atleast not anytime soon

    the way it used to work (I cant come up with too many examples) is that Europe was sort of a retirement trip for players when they couldnt find a team in the NBA... the only example I could come up with is Tom Chambers, but he is a terrible example
