like i said. only guys who knew were kobe and west.

kind of like the rubio thing. we all knew he was good mini knew he didnt wanna play there. but they took a chance even if it means renting him or trading him later on


i doubt any of the 12 teams ahead of the hornets pass on kobe knowing what they know now.

theyed all take a chance.

Different situation than Rubio. Different environment and different NBA. Also Calipari's reticence was not on the talent level but of his job security.
