08:04 AM ET 09.30 | While in Italy, Kobe Bryant said he'll play in the Olympics and took a shot at Shaquille O'Neal -- and, oh yes, he may have signed a contract to play there. Everyone should roll their collective eyes on David Stern's threat that stalled negotiations this weekend over a new collective bargaining agreement could immediately cancel the 2011-2012 season. Here's the true sign that at least part of the NBA season appears in jeopardy. Lakers guard Kobe Bryant reportedly reached a verbal agreement to play with the Italian professional basketball team Virtus Bologna. Bryant will earn $3 million, reports the Associated Press, for the first 40 days of the Italian League season beginning Oct. 9.

You seem to think he guided to the Lakers to those rings.....he did'nt. Shaq 3 MVP(the leader), the other two 1st yeal (all Gasol in the finals 19pg/10rb and very clutch) 2nd year (the lakers team particularly Artest/Gasol in gm 7). In my opinon he got both those MVP's as a result of Division/Conf. Final play. He (Kobe) has never had a in your face (Magic/Bird/Jordan/Wade/Billups/Thomas/Jabbar/etc.) Finals showing......so yeah, I confidently say a ova rated fraud. I mean his finals 4th qtrs are just a step above Lebonon's and we all know how everyone trashed Lebonon.OBTW Robert Horry has 6 rings..........was he the leader of any of those championships, particularly in the finals?

Actually Horry has 7 rings, and he was a key factor when he won with Houston. Shaq wouldn't have won w/o Kobe, vice versa. You forgot how Gasol was absent the year the Lakers lost the finals to the Celtics, and Kobe played lights out.

You guys keep sayin Shaq would'nt have won without Kobe, Look at Kobe's stats durin those finals....they were not MVP Stats, Shaq's was. OBTW Shaq had already lead the Magic to the finals albeit they did'nt win. The point is Kobe has never had an eye opening finals dirtbag, so no, it is you whom sound like a moron, moron........**** pal!

You sound jealous that Kobe has more rings than your Knicks. Again junior, quit posting and embarrassing the state of new York. At this point, your embarrassing the entire human race with your unimaginable ignorance so please shut up and let the adults do the talking.

And junior, before you respond with more ignorance about how I hate new York.... I have never said anything bad about the state of new York or the people of ny on this site, just you. Some NY posters like jgb and m3atplow are some of the very best Fannation has to offer and bring valid, intelligent discussion to the table. Stop posting if all you ever have to say is mindless babble.
