Default Re: Forget Turkey forget NBA. Kobe Bryant has Soccer in his Sights

As long as it's not full contact competitive soccer, Kobe should be fine.

It's a charity game so they are not gonna kill each other.

He's a fan of the Premier League's Barcelona? Just like I'm a fan of the Euroleague's Lakers!

I bet Kobe can play Soccer well. He has great footwork on the court, and that will translate to the pitch.

Default Kobe playing in Celebrity Soccer Game

The LA Times reports:

Had he remained in Italy, Kobe Bryant may very well have been honing his footwork on the pitch instead of the hardwood.

He'll have a chance to do that Sunday when he appears in the Celebrity Soccer Challenge at Kastles Stadium in Washington D.C., an event sponsored by former U.S. women's soccer player Mia Hamm and her husband, ex-Dodger Nomar Garciaparra. But incidentally enough, Bryant may not have been making a token appearance on the soccer field had he seriously kept up with the sport.

Despite his background playing pickup soccer games as a youth in Italy, Bryant will not lace up the cleats and play in the Hamm-Garciaparra charity scrimmage on Sunday. Bryant will merely be a spectator for the game and will give his right knee, which recently endured a platelet-rich plasma therapy procedure, a rest, according to multiple sources.
