Kobe Bryant could possibly be playing in Italy if the lockout doesn’t end. While in Milan for a promotional event, he said “it’s very possible” he would play in the Italian pro league during the lockout. Kobe would get $2.5 million for 10 games with Virtus Bologna from Oct 9 to Nov 16, smh, give me one game lol. Kobe lived in Italy as a youth because his father Joe Bryant played pro basketball for eight years. I think it would be good for Kobe and the game of basketball to go to Italy if the lockout continues. It gives Italy something new and exciting to talk about and and could boost the global economy a little bit. I say go for it Kobe.
