    Kobe says he will consider a $50 million European offer

    Its possible Bryant could leave the NBA for Europe perhaps in a dual role of owner and player as early as next summer. Bryant is signed with the Lakers through the 2010-11 season, but can opt out after next season.

    Re: Kobe says he will consider a $50 million European offer

    I saw this. I think it might be good for basketball if the talent gets spread out. Or maybe it is just getting Kobe out of the U.S.

    I'd vote for that. He must be finding that European women are less likely to "tell"...

    Well of course he's considering it. LeBron said the same thing a few days ago, Kobe can't be outdone!

    Re: Kobe says he will consider a $50 million European offer

    I could see Kobe going over there more than Lebron, since he grew up in Europe, speaks Italian, and has alot of European endorsements...

    This has to have NBA officials absolutely terrified. They claim that it doesn't bother them... But it has to be getting to them.

    Actually if you get the guys that are in the NBA for the money and themselves alone out of the NBA I might start getting interested in the NBA again. Except for watching Hornacek, I haven't cared since the 80's.

    Chances of Kobe or LeBron going?!?! 0 Percent

    No chance. None. As much as LeBron wants to be a billionaire which he says about once a week in the media, he loves the attention of being in the spotlight even more. Same goes for Kobe.

    These guys don't need the money but they need the attention

    Re: Kobe says he will consider a $50 million European offer

    I couldn't do it. I'd take 20 million here. Seriously, can a person tell the difference in their lifestyle from 20 to 50 million?

    Re: Kobe says he will consider a $50 million European offer

    I wouldn't mind being a superstar in Europe and getting paid. You could always do it for a few years and come back. More likely, as someone may have alluded to, it could end up like soccer stars from elsewhere coming here. Get a big paycheck on the tail end of your career, and advertise the game more (not that bball needs it as much as soccer).

    I think the chance is low, but not zero. They would be even BIGGER superstars over there... See David Beckham.
