The story never gets old: Kobe Bryant, drafted thirteenth overall out of Lower Merion H.S. by the Charlotte Hornets, gets traded on the night of the NBA draft to the Los Angeles Lakers in a move that, in hindsight, looks like highway robbery. Jerry West, who orchestrated the trade, believed Kobe would be a massive star and took the opportunity to get the future Black Mamba in yellow and gold. Still, it’s fun to think of a possible scenario featuring Kobe as a Hornet, but it’s clear that the man would’ve achieved the pinnacle of success wherever he played. Get the latest rendition of the Kobe 11 “Draft Day” next Thursday, April 28th at select Nike retailers like Deadstock Canada.
