Could Manu and Kobe become teammates in Virtus Bologna?

According to sportando.net, Claudio Sabatini the owner of Virtus Bologna, talked again to Resto del Carlino, about Los Angeles Lakers superstar Kobe Bryant and San Antonio SpursManu Ginobili.

Could Manu and Kobe become teammates in Virtus Bologna?

“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. As reported by Bolognabasket.it

At this point, nothing is certain. Unless there is confirmation from Ginobili or Bryant this remains a rumor.

However, if Sabatini could somehow raise the money needed to bring over and convince the two NBA stars to Italy it would one of the biggest overseas acquisition during this lockout.

The idea of Bryant and Ginobili playing for the same team should bring fear to opposing teams and joy and excitement for Virtus’ fans.
