Claudio Sabatini said via La Gazzetta dello Sport that the conference call with Kobe Bryant's management scheduled for last night failed. The owner of Virtus Bologna also added that he wrote a letter to the White House and US President Barack Obama, who hoped yesterday that the NBA lockout would end soon. 'I wanted to make clear to the White House that I don't want to steal the best NBA player putting the league into the shadows. My intention is to give the opportunity to the city of Bologna and to the Italian basketball movement to have Kobe for few days' said Sabatini.
