Globetrotters invite Kobe to play vs. Generals

December 14, 2012

After the Lakers lost their fourth straight game Thursday night, Kobe Bryant remarked, "Right now I wish we had the Washington Generals on our schedule."

Before the Lakers visited the Washington Wizards on Friday -- the second night of a back-to-back -- the Globetrotters made it clear that if Kobe is truly interested in playing the Generals, that opportunity is readily available.

Via their Twitter account (@Globies), the Harlem Globetrotters offered to set something up against their regular sparring partners.

"Kobe wants to play the Generals next. We can make that happen. Just ask former Globetrotter @MagicJohnson. Kobe -- give us a call," read the Globetrotters' tweet.

Lakers great Johnson joined the Globetrotters back in 2003 to defeat Michigan State (his former team), 97-83.

Naturally Bryant won't be available for the Globetrotters on Friday, but certainly the invitation stands should Bryant have some interest this offseason.
