After confirming his interest in San Antonio Spurs' Manu Ginobili six days ago, Claudio Sabatini of the Italian club Virtus Bologna has not only reiterated his interest in Ginobili but has now entertained the idea of bringing Los Angeles Lakers' Kobe Bryant to Italy as well.
Imagine Bryant and Ginobili on the same team? Their play in the open court and penetration would be spectacular to see. According to Sportando.net, Sabatini is really hoping that a deal of this nature can be done.
"I can risk by my own the 50% of the total amount of money needed. For the other half, I need the help of private companies, professional associations and the municipality. We have three opportunities: the arrival of Kobe Bryant, the return of Manu Ginobili and the organization of FIBA World Championship Under 19 in 2013. If I don't have the help to cover the other 50% of the cost I am not going forward to negotiate with Kobe Bryant" said Sabatini
