The NBA Season isn’t going to start on time unless some sort of miracle happens and NBA players know this. That is why they are all flocking to Europe to make some cash while the season is in limbo.

Kobe Bryant is the biggest name still out there and at some point he is going to accept one of these offers as they keep getting bigger and bigger.

Kobe Bryant has been offered a $6.7 million, one-season contract to play for the Italian team Virtus Bologna, appealing to his childhood memories of growing up in the country.

The Los Angeles Lakers superstar spent part of his youth in Italy while his father played there. He speaks Italian, prompting Bologna to hope he might return if there’s an NBA lockout.

Virtus Bologna general manager Massimo Faraoni tells The Associated Press he’s been on conference calls with Bryant’s agent, Rob Pelinka, Bologna president Claudio Sabatini and main sponsor Canadian Solar, which would provide the cash for such a deal.

Kobe is going to wait until the last moment to make a decision, but wherever he goes it will be straight cash homie deposited into his account.

    Should Kobe have the right to fullfill his childhood dreams of playing as his dad did in Italy?

    Why not?

    So, wherever Kobe goes they are going to bring him a suitcase full of dollar bills? You tried to be funny by repeating Randy’s line, and it wasn’t, why? Because it has been repeated a million times. Why aren’t you morons from the media be more original? No wonder you went to Ohio state, what did you major in, parks and recreations, Queer Musicology or some other dumb, non challenging major?
