Default Re: Kobe shunned by several teams in 1996 Draft (NYPost article)

Kobe pretty much came out and said that he only wanted to play for two teams. Knicks and Lakers. He told teams that if they drafted him he would go overseas or go to college, just for the education.

also in 1996 it wasnt en vogue to draft high schoolers, especially guards.
