Kobe Bryant Playing In Italy Might Have Hit A Wall

It's all to get the NBA owners going T..

So the deal has hit a huge wall it seems. Virtus Bologna had filed a request to the Italian League to have their schedule altered in order to allow 10 games within those 40 days of Kobe’s contract. (This league apparently only schedules one game per week for each team.) The other teams within the league vetoed this request flat out. What Claudio Sabatini wanted was 10 HUGE games against the best of the league in the best arenas to draw in the biggest crowds. Claudio had calculated that he would need those 10 games to make his investment back/turn a profit. This may very well be a deal breaker folks. Laker fans…..you can breathe now. Thanks to @laughatlebron for this scoop. -TO
