Default How many #13 picks in the draft had as much clout as Kobe?

Apparently a low draft pick can make major organizations bend to his will and demand trades. Who else had this much power without being a top draft pick?

It was a loaded draft. No shame in going 13. If we redid it today knowing everything, would he move up drastically or barely crack the top 10? Tough to say. It's certainly a debate.

Draft pick is only a number, like age. It means nothing to Kobe Bryant.

It's one of the deepest drafts of all time... Ben Wallace went undrafted that year too. MJ went drafted #3 in '84, no shame there either.

Keep in mind Charlotte drafted Kobe... nobody really talks about that.

Best player in that draft, Kobe paved way for peremeter players coming out of high school. had Kobe came after Lebron he would have been picked first and had been just as hyped.

How is it a debate? I'm not even much of a Kobe fan, but I can't imagine anyone not picking him #1.

Damn your white text!

I thought Kobe went lower because he loudly exclaimed he'd only play for a handful of franchises, none of which had a low draft pick.

see thats the difference between Kobe and Lebron. Kobe is a man of conviction, he will tell you flat out that he's not playing for your bum ass city while Lebron the hypocrite will loudly proclaim that he's bringing a championship home then bounce when the situation gets tough

I always liked their characters better than the people in the Stanfield organization, except Michael, who I thought was a good character

look, i don't like Kobe, but to say he legitimately deserved to be number 13 pick is to ignore the fact that the only reason he dropped that low was because of his diva attitude (proclaiming he will only sign with certain teams). he'd be picked higher if he weren't such a diva.

Karl Malone was a #13 pick in the 1985 draft if I remember correctly. Obviously not as good as Kobe, but deserves a mention.
