Los Angeles Lakers News: Kobe Bryant Wouldn't Mind Being Traded to FC Barcelona for Lionel Messi

By Staff Reporter, Posted: 09/24/12 09:54AM EDT

First LeBron promised to take the Liverpool FC to Las Vegas if they won -- isn't it crazy that LeBron is already throwing out the "you have to win a championship" talk just three months after winning his first? -- now Kobe is suggesting he wouldn't mind playing for Barcelona FC for a week.

The Los Angeles Lakers star told reporters in Europe it would be fun if he could spend one week with Barcelona, while the football star spend that same week with the Lakers.

Bryant is in Europe this week to shoot a commercial for Turkish Airlines which also stars Messi. 

The 34-year-old guard is a renowned Barcelona fan and took part in a training session with the Catalans back in 2011 when he visited the club.

There are many similarities between the Argentinian soccer star and Bryant. Messi was great early, having received Ballon d'Or and FIFA World Player of the Year by the age of 21. By that same age, Bryant was already an NBA superstar and a year from winning his first NBA title. 

Both are winners. Messi has won five La Ligas, two Copas del Rey, five Supercopas de Espana, three Champions Leagues, two Super Cups, and two Club World Cups. Bryant, meanwhile, has five NBA championship rings, an MVP, multiple all star game MVPs, and two Olympic gold medals. And, of course, both are prolific scorers and represent Turkish Airlines.
