DAMN!: Kobe Bryant Offered $600K per Game to Play in Italy
Kobe Bryant is probably the most recognizable current NBA baller out there, and any team in the world would kill to have him join their ranks. One team in particular is willing to shell out some mega bucks to entice Bryant to join up.
Virtus Bologna has offered Kobe $600,000 per game to come and play in the Italian League. That’s a lot of money to walk away from, even for someone who’s already got racks on racks. Plus, Bryant loves Italy – he lived there for years growing up and speaks fluent Italian.
The deciding factor may be how long this lockout is going to last. If it starts to look like things are going to be resolved, Kobe will certainly return to the NBA for a $25 million paycheck and chance at a sixth ring.
