Again, these vids are kinda dumb bc in 90s, not til 2001 was a HS player drafted #1. before, GMs went on skill and talent rather than potential. KG was first, he was drafted #5 by MINN, but was drafted after Joe Smith, Antonio McDyss, Jerry Stackhouse, and Rasheed Wallace. What did all those player have in common? Went to big universities, faced top level competition, performed. In 96, Kobe was drafted #13 and Jermaine O'Neal was drafted #17. O'Neal was on the bench with Blazers til he was traded to the Pacers. Kobe came off the bench his first year. But who was drafted before Kobe? AI, Camby, Abdur-Rahim, Marbury, Allen, A Walker, Lorenzen Wright, Kerry Kittles. Again, what they all have in common? at universities, faced top level competition, performed.

AI deserved the #1 spot regaurdless of how kobes mighty rings turned out AI proved himself in football and basketball in high school and then college; lol Kobe never proved himself in college AI was the most gifted of the 96 draft and possibly any draft.

these vids are getting pretty dumb. Ok, the player (Kobe) became an all time great, but when he was drafted, he was an unknown. He wasnt LBJ, he came out 7 years before LBJ. Kobe didnt have all the media coverage and HS games televised.

I remember there was a lot of hype when Kobe was drafted. It turned out to be for real, but he wasn't even a starter on the Lakers his first year yet he was selected for the all star team.

Can you make a vid of 59 players drafted before Isaiah Thomas the 60th overall pick . that would be spectacular
Mike909ism - 16 days ago
Because they were stupid? Philly had scouts at most of Kobe’s high school games and trust, Kobe dominated and they still drafted Iverson. Not knocking Iverson, he was a bad dude but Kobe simply is a one of a kind talent. Philly cost themselves titles.

Why stop at Kobe? The next two picks were Peja Stojakovic and Steve Nash. Also, that draft year featured the first player ever to be cut as the first round draft choice: Travis Knight.

13:12 riiiight! Yo I swear I adored Kobe and Shaq-but KG and Kobe?🤦🏽‍♂️🤦🏽‍♂️🤦🏽‍♂️that would’ve been the biggest dog matchup in history. But, considering their uniforms in the early 2010’s I’m glad it didn’t happen😂😂😂it sounds like a joke but half the reason I became a lakers fan was their jerseys🤷🏾‍♂️purple and gold were two of my favorite colors

I thought there were 12 players taken before Kobe because the Hornets had the 13th overall pick and not the 1st.

Todd Fuller? Wow.. I have never heard of this guy! He was a real "screw up" by the Warriors. LOL I guess the real lesson for the NBA GMs is you have to look beyond the skillsets of an upcoming drafts. A few days of training camp and video tapes do not show much on "work ethics" and "attitudes" (just look at Iverson's attitudes issue). Kobe was young.. but he has immense attitude and "drive" to want to improve on his games. Look at Siakim and Middleton.. two players that are making a huge impact on their current team.. and both were playing G-league prior.

Iverson always gets treated unfairly. It's underappreciated what it takes to take on guys who are in a higher weight and heightclass than you on a daily basis. He was no Muggsy Bogues, but to be as versatile as him and be able to take up some of the best that ever played at 6'0 (probably more like 5'10) deserves a medal.
