Kobe To Play In Europe?

LOS ANGELES (CBS) – With an NFL Lockout looming, what would happen if the NBA has their own lockout after this season?

If so, Kobe Bryant could be heading to Europe and play while the NBA is on lockout. On Friday, Kobe told the New York Daily News, “I wouldn’t be opposed to it. You know how much I love Italy. I grew up there.”

NBA owners and players are far apart on a resolution for a new collective bargaining agreement.

June 30th is the final day of the current deal.
