  • James and Kobe would consider Europe

    A person close to LeBron James said Tuesday that the Cavaliers' forward would strongly consider playing overseas if he was offered a salary of "around $50 million a year."
    Kobe Bryant also said that he'd be interested in going to Europe for $40 million a season. We could see the league's superstars going to Europe in 2010, but only if the cities of New York, Brooklyn or Los Angeles were to relocate there as well. But with all the talk about players bolting to Europe, look for the league to come up with some new ideas on how to stop it from being such an easy out in the future. And Coach K, who doesn't get enough credit for his sense of humor, says he hopes Kobe lands on the Polish National Team at some point. The biggest problem facing the NBA is that due to the salary cap, the most an NBA team can pay a superstar is around $20 million per season. Stay tuned.

      dont think Lebron or Kobe will ever go to Europe unless it's once they are finished in the NBA kind of like David Beckham coming here after his prime...... Anyone think Favre should go to NFL Europe?

        Seeing how NFL Europe doesn't exist anymore...yes.

            See all these rich players want more... Can a player ever just play for the love of the game and not for the money and fame?

              Nope...but that's just the reality of modern sports. Not saying it's a bad thing though.

              I agree with the comparison with Beckham, lol but didn't Scotty Pippen play in Barcelona?? Saw that when I visited the Nou Camp

                He's not going to the Knicks, Siena. You don't have to post it. I know you're thinking it.
