Man this is not good for Laker fans. Kobe is saying that he wont resign an extension with the Lakers and that he is seriously considering moving to the Euroleague and negotiating becoming a part owner of an Italian professional basketball team. Doesnt he own part of Olympiano already??? Or maybe is all the attention getting to KObe's head??

I wouldnt look to much into it... i think... i hope he is just blowing smoke, cause then he said it would be near impossible to pry him from the lakers... because they are in position to win multiple championships so i mean i wouldnt be terribly worried...

You guys should know Kobe by now. He will NEVER leave the NBA untill he's like 37-38. He wants to be the best, and to do that, he needs to play in the NBA. Plus, he loves the Lakers too much. I think he'd love to move to Italy and live there, but only when it's all said and done in the NBA.

If he means this somewhat, I would want next season to REALLY be Lakers' season and diminish the C's. This will greatly help...you guys know what I'm talking about. :(

Someday Kobe is going to have an offseason where he doesn't feel the need to F with us when we have nothing better to do than listen.

I'm going to say this with all due respect to KB24.
If he wants to leave, then bon voyage. The past two summers have been complete BS for Lakers fans.

Sure he's arguably the greatest player in the world right now, but c'mon, what the hell is his problem? Why does he need to make all of this public? DOESN'T HE HAVE BETTER THINGS TO DO RIGHT NOW???

He's got all the money in the world, yet all of these comments about going to Europe revolve around fat contracts and obtaining assets. Where does that faint bit of loyalty come into play?

who knows man will you turn down 50 million dollars every year Kobe's right if the money is there like 50 mill he's gonna take it and run it no way any person turns down 50 mill.

No team in Italy is going to give him $50M per season. Kobe wants to go down as the greatest player of all time... he still has a lot of good years left and still needs to win championships before he leaves.

Would you leave a team that close to a dynasty to go play in Russia or Greece?

Lets keep in mind, NBA has the most talent of all the basketball leagues in the world - none more competitive. Kobe wants to be at the top of the basketball mountain - the NBA

Bryant might leave when he gets old, but no way he's leaving the NBA next summer.

can you imagine if we win the title this year, and then kobe ops out and signs a 40 mil a year contract in europe being a player/owner

i would be in total shock.

broken is the promise, betrayal

Lol you guys need to relax, he wont leave... and its going to be hard for an Italian team to off 40 million... thats ridiculous per year.... josh childress got like 6 mil a year... they need to scrap to gether 34 million more! A YEAR!!! its not happening... the whole NBA is just going through this big euro phase and blowing things out of propotion.. our economy sucks, so our money is worthless thats why they are getting so much money... they are offering probably the same amount its just their money is worth more...
