<div class='quotetop'>QUOTE </div><div class='quotemain'>The move of Josh Childress to Olympiacos has encouraged many speculations about NBA stars coming to Europe. One of the recent ones was an idea posted by American journalist. According to him Olympiacos could make an offer to LeBron James in 2010 when his contract runs out. Kobe Bryant wouldn't mind going overseas if the right offer comes either. Last season's NBA MVP was answering journalists' questions after USA - Russia game (Americans won it 89:68). Kobe Bryant was asked if there is a chance that he would continue his career outsite United States. "Of course," Kobe Bryant said. His father once played in Italy so Bryant was asked if it would be Italy. "Italy, Greece, Russia...", said Kobe showing that he is not ruling a move to any country if he receives a good offer. Now the managers of the big clubs in Europe could be wondering what would it take to bring one the brightest NBA stars to their team. The answer is simple - 40 million dollars. "40 million a year and I am here. There's nothing simpler", concluded Lakers star.</div> http://www.talkbasket.net/news/40-million-...-to-europe.html <div class='quotetop'>QUOTE </div><div class='quotemain'>Kobe Bryant admitted over the weekend that he would consider leaving the NBA for Russia if a sizable contract could be arranged, according to The Sport Express Daily. "Of course," Bryant said when asked if he'd consider playing overseas. "By the way, are you the owner of a Russian team? It can be arranged for $40 million per year." A number of NBA players have left the NBA for Europe this offseason, in a somewhat surprising turn of events. It's highly doubtful that Bryant would ever actually sign with a Russian team, but anything could become possible for the right price. It seems as though everyone wants a piece of Kobe though. "I would love Kobe to come to Duke University to play for me," added Team USA coach Mike Krzyzewski. "I can't offer him that kind of salary, but he would receive a university diploma instead."</div> http://english.sport-express.ru/summary/1_2938/ If he isn't kidding around, I wouldn't rule out seeing Kobe Bryant in Olympiakos or CSKA red after his contract runs out.
