    Y you just trash the hall of famer, MVP, 4x scoring champ, 3x steals leader, 3x first team all nba and, 11x all star Allen Iverson!? Nobody had more heart then that 5'11" guard! Top 5 guard of all time! His sixers teams were trash and he still carried them to the finals!!?

    That was the deepest draft ever, Kobe wasn't that much of a big deal, high school players weren't looked at really. People would have taken Marbury over Kobe 99/100 times. Iverson and Marbury were instant superstars and Ray Allen was Jesus Shuttlesworth while Kobe was averaging like 13 ppg off the bench... People forget that the internet barely existed and unless you went to a huge basketball school like Duke, North Carolina, UCLA, Kentucky, etc. you were a virtual unknown. ESPN wasn't exactly covering high school basketball the way they did once Lebron rolled around... Most people never heard of Kobe before the draft

    I'm pretty sure McGrady was picked before his cousin Vince (who was traded to Toronto for his Tarheels teammate Antawn Jamison at the draft). And back in the late 90's, NOBODY wanted to play for Toronto and highschoolers were generally viewed as very high risk, medium reward at best.

And y'all couldn't beat the team for a decade as they got older and older..... Let the warriors win 8 out of 10 and then that claim. Can b submitted

    Okay, I just want to say that as a Sixers fan and I think I speak for every philly fan, I don't wish for 20 years of Kobe over Iverson. Sure he was a hometown kid and may have brought way better things to the team, but no matter how you look at it somehow AI embodied everything Philadelphia, his street mentality to his flashy play. It was a perfect fit and to this day he is and always will be my favorite player of all time despite being unable to beat the Lakers with his local rec league friends.

    Good video but I think you sold Iverson a little short. Yeah, he may have hated "practice" but the dude was a warrior on the court and worked harder than just about everybody once the ball was tipped. He led the league in minutes played numerous times, and as he was a smaller guy who constantly drove to the basket he got the shit beaten out of him every game yet kept coming back for more. He also had 2 pretty darn good seasons in Denver before he fell off, you made it seem like he was garbage in Denver right away. I really think he is an under appreciated all time great and that is mainly because of the off the court stuff which you nailed in the video, yeah, that was a mess.

    Again, these vids are kinda dumb bc in 90s, not til 2001 was a HS player drafted #1. before, GMs went on skill and talent rather than potential. KG was first, he was drafted #5 by MINN, but was drafted after Joe Smith, Antonio McDyss, Jerry Stackhouse, and Rasheed Wallace. What did all those player have in common? Went to big universities, faced top level competition, performed. In 96, Kobe was drafted #13 and Jermaine O'Neal was drafted #17. O'Neal was on the bench with Blazers til he was traded to the Pacers. Kobe came off the bench his first year. But who was drafted before Kobe? AI, Camby, Abdur-Rahim, Marbury, Allen, A Walker, Lorenzen Wright, Kerry Kittles. Again, what they all have in common? at universities, faced top level competition, performed.

    Because they were stupid? Philly had scouts at most of Kobe’s high school games and trust, Kobe dominated and they still drafted Iverson. Not knocking Iverson, he was a bad dude but Kobe simply is a one of a kind talent. Philly cost themselves titles.
