Video: Kobe Hearts Barça
It seems like we hadn't heard anything from the Soccer-Basketball Mutual Appreciation Society™ in quite a while. I was starting to get concerned that all the hoopsters had made a jailbreak back to the NFL or something but then Kobe made his now-annual declaration of faith, this time for ESPN The Mag. I wish there was a USL that would sign him and Steve Nash just to see what would happen, kind of like when Jordan was playing AA ball. While Nash could probably hang, how Kobe would fare would probably be less positive. But if nothing else it would be great PR for the team.
