Kobe Plays Overseas

After all, he's been there before. Kobe spent a big chunk of his childhood overseas as his dad Joe "Jellybean" Bryant played seven seasons in Italy. He knows the language and the culture. Plus, he'd get a chance to follow his favorite futbol teams more closely. And there's already rumblings of an offer from Besiktas, the Turkish team that also hopes to score All-Star point guard Deron Williams. Plus, the ultimate predator needs prey. We'd say it was a mortal lock if it weren't for nagging injuries that might do best with time off.
