Now that Kobe’s become the youngest player in NBA history to drop 30,000 points in a career (and he’s still got some mileage left on them wheels), we started thinking about some of the teams that passed up drafting the Mamba out of high school in 1996.
While some of the dudes included the likes of potential Hall of Famers Ray Allen and Allen Iverson, other guys didn’t quite live up to the billing of a lottery pick.
Based on Bryant’s phenomenal career thus far, we’re sure these teams kick themselves every time they see him adding yet another accolade to his resume.
