The Day Kobe Bryant Was A Celtic

Back in 1996, the Boston Celtics had a chance to draft Kobe Bryant with the sixth overall pick and invited him for a pre-draft workout. Of course, they instead decided to select Antoine Walker. While Kobe Bryant ended up being picked 13th overall by the Charlotte Hornets, before being traded to the Los Angeles Lakers.

Looking back, not taking Kobe ended up being a great idea by the Celtics who won five championships since 1996. Oh wait, that was the Lakers. For better or worse, another photo of Kobe’s pre-draft workout with the Celtics below.
