Harlem Globetrotters Invite Los Angeles Lakers to Play the Washington Generals

Last night, a dejected Kobe Bryant joked that the reeling Lakers should go up against the Washington Generals to get some of their winning mojo back. Word got back to the Harlem Globetrotters, who extended an invitation for a game. Per the LA Times: “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.’ The Lakers are set to visit the Washington Wizards on Friday, the second night of a back-to-back. If, however, Bryant is truly interested in playing the Generals, that opportunitiy 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.”
