Kobe pushing for Barca swap

22 September 2012 12:05

Kobe Bryant has jokingly suggested an exchange deal between LA Lakers and Barcelona involving himself and Lionel Messi.

The NBA superstar travelled to Europe this week to shoot a commercial for Turkish Airlines together with the Argentina international, and he would be happy to trade places with the 25-year-old for a week.

"It would be fun if I spent one week with Barcelona and Messi played one week with the Lakers," Bryant told reporters.

"What the commercial will be like? Probably Messi will play football and I will play basketball."

Bryant, 34, is a big Barcelona fan and took part in a training session with the Catalans back in 2011 when he visited the club.
