Phil Jackson may not be very happy that the Lakers are leaving training camp in El Segundo for London right now but Kobe Bryant has to be pleased with his European fan base. While Kobe looks for his third ring in a row this season he can bank on one three-peat. His number 24 jersey has been reported as the top seller in Europe for the third consecutive year. Taking a look at the sales from last year LeBron James and Dwyane Wade came in second and third respectively (maybe this will change this season). With all this love for Kobe surely he has to play in London and Barcelona. It seems that he'll get more than his 15 minutes of fame however...16 to be exact in limited action in front of his legion of European fans. TIM DAVID HARVEY.
