Still pining...

Sheesh, some people really don’t have the word “quit” in their vocabulary; one of these is surely Virtus Bologna owner Claudio Sabatini, the relentless pursuer of Kobe Bryant during the NBA lockout … and beyond, it seems.

According to Corriere della Sport via Sportando, Sabatini still can’t get the L.A. Laker off his mind. Runs the quote: “We had the agreement, there was just a little detail left. He was supposed to arrive yesterday, play today and leave tomorrow. Three days, one game, but we would sell out Unipol Arena and make €1.5 million. Our first offer for Kobe was $800,000 for two months then we offered him around $3 million for four days.”

Well, BiE’s not too familiar with the $3 million offer but one wonders if Bryant himself was aware about an “agreement,” which, to be honest, was most probably purely in Sabatini’s fevered imagination.

And in an alternate universe, BiE is scheduling his evening around finding a satellite broadcast of Serie A games in Hungary…
