Yeah...forgot that I guess.Yup. And truthfully, drafting Kobe likely would have led to much better results that actually occured for us.
Probably means we would have been too good to be in position to draft Pierce....and Kobe still forces his way out.
So glad it worked out the way it did.
I'm assuming then, Antoine was drafted ahead of Kobe. Which is hilarious.
Antoine was drafted right around where he should have been and we should be happy with the level of competitiveness he showed while he was here. Other than Pierce, it's not like the roster was filled with all-stars.
I am sure the Mavs who selected Samaki Walker at 9 and the Warriors who selected Todd Fuller at 11 are even more upset that they didn't take Kobe, Nash, or Jermaine. They probably would have killed for Antoine, too.
