NBA Lockout Day 89 & Kobe's Greek Odyssey Continued

I hope Olympiakos' owners, the Angelopoulos brothers, were in the OAKA stands tonight when Kobe held up that jersey. Yes, some of the Panathinaikos fans booed. Bryant continued his Athens NIKE basketball tour on Tuesday. Earlier in the morning, 'KB24' played and trained with youth kids (in a much smaller arena) who have been competing in 3-on-3 tournaments over the past week. You can say a similar scene occurred at OAKA. The Los Angeles Laker guard is looking for a full $15 million from Virtus Bologna before he can truly consider suiting up in Italy. I must say the Black Mamba would look good in red and white. He's definitely enjoyed his 2-day stay in Greece as he can't wipe the smile off his face. 

Portland Draft pick and current Panionios player Jon Diebler joined Kobe yesterday, while today it was Greek national team legend and current Olympiakos player Vassilis Spanoulis who made his special appearance. 'Kill Bill' gifted Bryant the Olympiakos jersey. 'Mamba' and 'V-Span' shared some time together with the youth players at OAKA. These two dueled in the 2008 Beijing Olympics and both men expressed their massive respect for one another. Gazzetta.gr has been dominating this Kobe coverage these past few days.
