Kobe Bryant Reminisces About His Workout with the Celtics

I guess Kobe Bryant is feeling nostalgic as he's in the twilight of his career. Today he tweeted a picture we posted on this site a couple years ago. It's from his pre-draft workout back in 1996 with the Boston Celtics. The Celtics GM at the time, M.L. Carr, was very high on Kobe, but then M.L. traded up to the 6th pick (in what was unanimously considered a 6 player draft) and drafted Antoine Walker. At the time it was unheard of to draft a high school guard high in the draft. The Charlotte Hornets would go on to draft Kobe in a prearranged deal in the teens and trade him the the Los Angeles Lakers for Vlade Divac.
