This is pretty funny. I think Kobe has established he’ll stay in the NBA, but for the hell of it:
The Hoop: According to italian site basketcentral.it Olympiakos is preparing an offer for Kobe Bryant for next summer. The Italian site claims that they have information from “inside the club” insinuating that the Angelopoulos brothers will offer the superstar a contract of 60 million dollars for 3 years with an option for the player at the end of each season.
Now before all the chicken littles post, remember they would pay him in Euro’s, not dollars to play there… The article says “dollars,” but if this was $20 million EUROS per year then that’s almost… $28 million US DOLLARS per year.
Hence, $60 million EUROS for 3 years =~ $84 million US DOLLARS.
But again, article says “dollars”. Eh, I need some Lakers basketball and quick!
