There were 12 players drafted before Kobe Bryant. How did that happen? And how did their careers turn out?

  • Saghorse1978

    I wish the Timberwolves had taken him. I would’ve liked to see that. They would have won at least 2 titles.

    Y you just trash the hall of famer, MVP, 4x scoring champ, 3x steals leader, 3x first team all nba and, 11x all star Allen Iverson!? Nobody had more heart then that 5'11" guard! Top 5 guard of all time! His sixers teams were trash and he still carried them to the finals!!?

  • Edwinthepro

    I think you should do 14 players before kawhi

    “Most unbeatable dynasty in NBA history.” Raptors: 😂

  • Briscoe17555

    That was the deepest draft ever, Kobe wasn't that much of a big deal, high school players weren't looked at really. People would have taken Marbury over Kobe 99/100 times. Iverson and Marbury were instant superstars and Ray Allen was Jesus Shuttlesworth while Kobe was averaging like 13 ppg off the bench... People forget that the internet barely existed and unless you went to a huge basketball school like Duke, North Carolina, UCLA, Kentucky, etc. you were a virtual unknown. ESPN wasn't exactly covering high school basketball the way they did once Lebron rolled around... Most people never heard of Kobe before the draft

  • Nas

    Um no Ray Allen was not better than AI

    He was from high school and also in a deep draft. Plus not to mention he was picky with where he wanted to go

  • Ghostflame92

    Lol that ad transition though, not bad

  • Montavious Wilson

    Ray Allen was the best shot until Steph came along.

  • TMLJunK

    I'm pretty sure McGrady was picked before his cousin Vince (who was traded to Toronto for his Tarheels teammate Antawn Jamison at the draft). And back in the late 90's, NOBODY wanted to play for Toronto and highschoolers were generally viewed as very high risk, medium reward at best.

    The Toronto f***** up the worst and the draft full of offensive superstars.... and they pick a defensive guy..

    Umm..... I take offensive to most dominant dynasty comment; that is (and I hate to say it as a Laker fan) is the Bill Russell's Celtics.... U gonna tell me for 11 years (or how ever fucking long) y'all couldn't whip their ass..... Like there was only 10 teams not 30 like today (exaggerating obv.) And y'all couldn't beat the team for a decade as they got older and older..... Let the warriors win 8 out of 10 and then that claim. Can b submitted

    Okay, I just want to say that as a Sixers fan and I think I speak for every philly fan, I don't wish for 20 years of Kobe over Iverson. Sure he was a hometown kid and may have brought way better things to the team, but no matter how you look at it somehow AI embodied everything Philadelphia, his street mentality to his flashy play. It was a perfect fit and to this day he is and always will be my favorite player of all time despite being unable to beat the Lakers with his local rec league friends.

  • mase8705

    Shareef Abdur-Rahim is the Kevin of the 2000s. Always a good player but played on crappy teams.

  • boletus2001

    Good video but I think you sold Iverson a little short. Yeah, he may have hated "practice" but the dude was a warrior on the court and worked harder than just about everybody once the ball was tipped. He led the league in minutes played numerous times, and as he was a smaller guy who constantly drove to the basket he got the shit beaten out of him every game yet kept coming back for more. He also had 2 pretty darn good seasons in Denver before he fell off, you made it seem like he was garbage in Denver right away. I really think he is an under appreciated all time great and that is mainly because of the off the court stuff which you nailed in the video, yeah, that was a mess.

    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.

  • YoBobNJ

    But what about Brady huh???

  • Dyanne Rocco Ilaria

    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.

    Can you make a vid of 59 players drafted before Isaiah Thomas the 60th overall pick . that would be spectacular

  • Mike909ism

    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.

  • parmelee23

    Because he was a high school kid and nobody wants to bet their franchise on a teenager

      @alp21188 he needed 30 shots to get 30 points. His fg percentage is horrendous, terrible passer, overrated defense. Most of his points came from the free throw line on those bitch ass pump fakes.

    • alp21188

      People who speak the truth about Kobe are called haters so that no one listens to the truth being told

    Kobe is NOT better than AI. Kobe had Shaq and Robert Horry.

    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

  • SlamClamBigelow

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