so i was reading this hangtime blog (the link below) and i was wondering what do you guys think?
“It would be natural for me to go do it. It wouldn’t be a stretch at all. I grew up here.”
Bryant plans to play out the final two years of his Lakers contract and reassess everything. He’s still performing on an All-Star level, and his knees are holding up with his 34th birthday approaching this month. As the son of Italian League star Joe Bryant, he lived in Italy for several years as a child. His memories of Italy’s pro league plush, Bryant still gushes over witnessing the scoring genius of Brazilian star Oscar Schmidt in Italy.
There’s so much sentimentality about Italy and so much more of a business acumen about his ability to push product in Europe. He’ll be selling Nikes forever here.
If Bryant ever wanted to make this leap at the end of his career, his decision on where to play would be an intriguing one.
