Kobe Says He'd Take Italy's $50 Million


Kobe Says He'd Take Italy's $50 Million

Color me unsurprised that Kobe would take up an Italian team on a $50 million per year vacation. Speaking to The Boston Globe, Bryant runs down all the reasons he's a special case:
"Because I grew up in Italy it has more significance to me because I'm more familiar with it, I've been there and I still have friends there," said Bryant, a three-time NBA champion. "I'm thinking about buying a house out there. It would be nothing to me to be able to do that."
This is all deeply hypothetical at this point. And let's not forget, Kobe the 2011 free agent will be 33, and have titles to his name -- the polar opposite of James, title-less and still trying to define the meaning of his prime at 25. LeBron would be putting his career on hold, and it could be lose/lose: Play too well, and you make Europe look like a joke, while anything less would hurt the brand. For Kobe, it's somewhere between a coda and a mild coup.

Plus, Kobe's reflecting on a return to his childhood home; LeBron's got Greece, which is plesant, or Russia. Russia. Then again, despite all the differences between Kobe-to-Italy and LeBron to the highest international bidder, there was this from the reigning MVP: "Do you know any reasonable person that would turn down 50 (million dollars)?"

I hope this doesn't get out of hand. You think the NBA is watered down. It can only get worse.
