Globetrotters offer to let Kobe, Lakers face Washington Generals

Dec 14, 2012, 5:41 PM EDT


It was a good line from Kobe Bryant, which is why it was our quote of the day.

“At this point I wish we had the Washington Generals on our schedule.”

Of course, the Harlem Globetrotters are a marketing machine with a basketball team attached, so you knew they would jump on that. And they did, on their official twitter account and that of their CEO:

Well played.

If the Lakers played the Generals Los Angeles would be a 3.5 point favorite, I think. You have to figure in that if you give Kobe the green light to shoot Meadowlark Lemon half court hook shots he’s going to take advantage of that. And Dwight Howard is going to run around doing that “confetti in the water bucket” trick all game long.

    This is just too good to be real.

    I’ll take the Generals and the points.

    This is just straight clownin’ now. SMDH

    Eat it up Laker haters, eat it up while you can. It’s a 50 foot table full of food, get a plate, grab a seat and feast ’till your belly protrudes and untucks your shirts.

    This is HILARIOUS and ironic !

    I’ve been saying for 17 years (the time kobe has been in the league) he would have been better suited as a Harlem Globetrotter.

    His shot selection, hand-full of trick shots, Curly Neal impersonation, the only thing that has been missing his entire career, is the confetti …..ahahahahahaha !

    He definitely can walk from the NBA court and fit in well on the Globetrotter court, once he graces us by retiring from the NBA.

    The lakers will be better off, the league will be better off and children watching the game, will learn to understand being a ball hawk, does not equate to “FUNDAMENTALS” !!!

    I would love to see this just for sheer entertainment. I’m sure they’re lots of players in the NBA who would enjoy a game with the Generals, just for fun. Sorta like playing a video game, only for real. LOL!

    I’d rather see them play the “Globies” themselves!
