08:10 AM ET 09.21 | A dream team Italy could love? Spurs guard Manu Ginobili has been weighing an offer from his old Italian team Virtus Bologna to join them during the lockout. But the team could provide a sweetener to seal the deal -- the chance for Ginobili to play with Kobe Bryant. Sportando.net reports that Bologna team president Claudio Sabatini said his team has been talking with Bryant for nearly a week to join the team. Bolognabasket.it reports that Bryant has been offered $600,000 per home game to join the team during the lockout. The offer would start on Nov. 13, when the Italian team starts its season. Bryant should have an idea about the lockout at that time. His deal would provide him with an NBA-opt out for when the lockout ends if he joins them.

Here we go again with another thread about this b..ch **** fraud Kobe. I mean this cat is so self absurb with the spotlight in the last years of his bush league era. Kobe homers don't come at me like you did yesterday with the five titles bs, cause at best during 3 of them, he was a second rate sidekick with little influence on the outcome of a series. Prior to Shaqs arrival, he was also career 18 pt a game bush league chucker.......check his first 4 year stats! I mean this sucker with all his sucker **** homer followering......jeez!
