Are they that desperate to get Kobe to play over in Italy?
They are offering him tons of money and I am sure several other perks that we know nothing about. Bryant who isn’t hard up for cash is taking his time before making a decision, so the Italian team wrote an open letter to President Obama on their website.
The Sports Grid has the details.
Dear Mr. President,
We have a dream: to see Kobe Bryant playing for our Team Virtus Pallacanestro Bologna, the Italian town well known in the world as basket City.
According to your wishes we hope that the Nba lockout will shortly stop but in the meanwhile let us have the chance to see at least for one game the great Kobe Bryant playing with our black and white jersey and be part of our history.
I am curious what the Italian team thinks President Obama can do? He can’t even get a bill passed through the Senate, so I doubt he will issue an executive order for Bryant to go play in Italy.
Right now Team Virtus Pallacanestro Bologna is coming off real thirsty like am Almost Basketball Wife.
